A Last of Us Part II Clicker cosplay has caught the eye of developer Naughty Dog and it’s pretty easy to see why, as it looks like it was ripped right out of a cutscene in the popular third-person action game.

Clickers in The Last of Us series are known for their terrifying nature. The sound they produce leave you with a chill running down your spine and when you meet them face to face, you get to see the true horror of what they look like. You want to do everything in your power to avoid in them because one false move can easily lead to a bad time.

Now, developer Naughty Dog has shared a Clicker cosplay that exemplifies all of the previously mentioned qualities and one look at it will allow you to understand why. Not only does it show the true horrific nature of the terrifying enemy, but it looks like it’s ripped right out of the game.

The cosplay that caught the eye of Naughty Dog seems to be somewhat inspired by this scene in the game.

The cosplay, which was created by cosplayer Gull Sheer and photographer Alon Levin, features a Clicker running towards someone holding a gun, presumably protagonist Ellie, in a shot very reminiscent of one seen in the game’s original release date trailer.

The cosplay itself was originally posted back in June of 2020 but it seems to have just now caught the eye of Naughty Dog, and, subsequently, the rest of the community. As of the time of this writing, the Twitter post from ND has 11K likes, which is nothing to scoff at, and it far and above more likes than other cosplays and fan arts that they’ve shared.

Even the developer couldn’t help but make mention of the cosplay’s hyper-realistic nature, claiming that they had to do a “double take” with it, due to the fact that it essentially looks like a screenshot from TLOU Part II.

All in all, it’s hard not to be impressed. Maybe once the HBO show releases, it’ll give these creators more inspiration for insane cosplays.

A Resident Evil Village cosplayer shared her mind-blowing true-to-life take on Alcina Dimitrescu. The talented artist brought the viral tall vampire lady to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Ever since her reveal in January 2021, the internet can’t get enough of the “tall vampire lady” that starred in Resident Evil Village’s trailer. Despite being the villain of the upcoming PlayStation 5 title, fans can’t get enough of the towering antagonist.

A cosplayer celebrated Alcina Dimitrescu by transforming into her with an incredibly detailed outfit. The artist’s perfect recreation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the terrifying character has walked right out of the screen and into real life.

The tall vampire has become a viral hit with fans.

Alcina’s explosion in popularity not only took many players by surprise, but Capcom itself was caught off guard by the internet’s obsession over the new villain. I mean, what’s not to love? The incredibly fierce antagonist has a unique design and looks badass the first time her towering height is revealed.

Prolific cosplayer Galina ‘rgtcandy‘ Zhukovskaya made waves on Instagram after sharing her faithful costume of the vampire on February 15. The artist perfectly recreated the antagonist’s iconic white silk pleated dress, as well as her signature large hat which hangs over her eyes.

Photographer Victoria ‘milliganvick‘ not only captured Galina as she posed as Dimitrescu but also helped the artist mirror Alcina’s look by meticulously applying makeup. This is easily one of the best portrayals of the tall vampire lady we have ever seen and it will be sure to capture fans’ hearts.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the talented duo also portrayed an iconic scene from the demo where Alcina emerges from a locked door and grabs Ethan. The 1:1 re-creation is chilling to say the least, as it brings the game to life like never before.

Resident Evil Village will make its debut on next-gen consoles and PC on May 7, 2021. The new entry in the popular survival-horror franchise will be the eighth in the series and will continue the design of 7 by using a first-person point of view.

While fans can’t seem to get enough of vampire Alcina Dimitrescu right now, it may be a different tune once the terrifying villain is chasing players down during the title’s epic story. One thing is for certain, though – the towering antagonist is already an icon in the genre.
