Irrational Games has released another new trailer for their eternally upcoming new game (it’s almost here…again…we think…please, for the love of all things holy and unholy, don’t be delayed again), BioShock Infinite.
The new trailer is titled “The Lamb of Columbia” and focuses on the character Elizabeth, who you’re there to rescue and who has some interesting abilities, to say the least.
Cosplayers are extraordinarily passionate about their craft, most going to great lengths to achieve the mimicry they desire. Now there may just be even more incentive to find the characters said cosplayers feel they can best embody, and do everything in their power to replicate that character.
Russian cosplayer Anna Moleva is one such case. The Moscow resident, who’s also known as “Ormeli,” has an affinity for video game characters, and when she saw Elizabeth, the female lead in Irrational Games’ upcoming BioShock Infinite, she knew she had to become her. The results were so successful, so eerily similar, that the makers of Infinite, including game designer Ken Levine, decided to hire her as the face of Elizabeth going forward.
