This Nick Valentine Fallout 4 cosplay is fantastic

Diamond City's synthetic detective comes as close to being a real human as he can in this stellar cosplay by 21-year-old Arcanum Order. Posting on Facebook, Arcanum Order captures the unvarnished, piercing face of Fallout 4's Nick Valentine - paired with an Institute Rifle made by Chunk-A-Nuke-Props.

If you're keen on getting into the cosplay scene yourself, the same official page has a solid selection of photos to study for help on the hard work needed to pull on the right clothing, contact lenses and plain ol' swagger. The best thing about Fallout 4 cosplay, though, is that even if you opt to procrastinate instead, it just takes one authentic global apocalypse for everyone to become characters in an irradiated wasteland. Hooray!
