A cosplay based off a character from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was so big and so detailed that it took a team of twelve people to create.

Cosplayers prove time and time again that they’re some of the most talented individuals on the planet as they dedicate hours to replicating costumes from their favorite video games, TV shows, and movies.

A creative team of a dozen artists came together to design a gigantic cosplay for Iceborne’s Grammeowster chef for Capcom’s booth at PAX West 2019, and it could be one of the best we’ve seen this year.

While the design was debuted at PAX West, the talented team behind GSTQ Fashions uploaded a video of their creation timeline on October 3, giving MH fans a glimpse into the effort and time it takes to recreate a costume of such a massive scale.

The making process was a lengthy one, and consisted of techniques such as digital modelling to plan the blueprints for the design before actually making it, 3D printing, woodworking, and leatherworking.

The gigantic cat chef was brought to life with the finished product being six and a half feet tall and almost four feet across – a massive achievement for a cosplay.

It took over three weeks to complete before being shown off at the convention between August 30 and September 2 to hype up the Monster Hunter expansion’s release onto console on September 6.

Who is Grammeowster?

The enormous Felyne was introduced in MHW’s first DLC expansion Iceborne as the resident elderly cook for the Seliana headquarters. 

Because of how cold the climate is, she’s forced to sport a headscarf, neck scarf, and a hooded coat to keep her warm.

While Felynes have always been a part of the series’ lore, Grammeowster seems to appeal more with fans due to her huge size – people can’t resist the cuteness.

GSTQ Fashions have created many outfits from games such as Overwatch and Gears 5, but their kitty costume was their biggest yet.

Dr Disrespect goes bald in bizarre Agent 47 cosplay for Hitman 3 stream

Streaming legend Dr Disrespect got into character for his playthrough of Hitman 3 by getting rid of his iconic mullet and going bald to cosplay as Agent 47.

Dr Disrespect is known to go the extra mile when trying out big new blockbuster video game releases. Notably, the two-time revamped his entire intro for the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 with some insane production quality.

While most of his character-specific streams have been limited to graphics such as reimagining himself as a Valorant skin prior to the game’s release, he decided to up the ante with a simple cosplay for Hitman.

During his January 20 stream of Hitman 3, the Two-Time Champion opted to cover his head in an attempt to appear bald, just like the game’s protagonist.

Unfortunately, Doc didn’t also opt for Agent 47’s signature suit with the red tie and kept his more traditional attire, sunglasses and all.

Amusingly, one could say that Doc and Agent 47 are polar opposites. While Dr Disrespect is a bombastic, larger-than-life personality, 47 is quite emotionless and calculating. You won’t see him flipping open an old phone after “getting a call” from shroud, TimTheTatMan, Ninja or another streamer.

As such, it makes for an interesting contrast with Doc cosplaying as a character whose only common theme is the desire to kill – in video games at least.

Speaking of the games, since the franchise was rebooted in 2016 as part of the World of Assassination trilogy, it has received critical acclaim. Enough so to make Doc even try his luck in the world of stealth.

That said, according to streaming Star, this was his first time ever playing a Hitman game despite seeing footage and gameplay of the other titles. Bravely, he decided to play on the game’s hardest difficulty, aiming for a zero death experience.

While the game may not exactly allow the Dr Disrespect to bring his signature violence, speed and momentum given its emphasis on stealth and infiltration, he seems to be enjoying it enough to see it through to its completion.
