One thing I admire about cosplayers is the amount of work they're willing to put in for their costumes. Whether they're a beginner or a seasoned pro, you know that what they're wearing isn't just a costume but a culmination passion and maybe a few sleepless nights sprinkled in. Basically, they're a one person props and costume department which is why when I see really, really good cosplay I don't even dare imagine how much time it must have taken to get there. Self-proclaimed "wannabe artist" Diegator is one of those cosplayers that gave me pause the moment I saw his epic Grey Fox cosplay from Metal Gear Solid. Take a look.
While he claims on his Facebook page that he's more of a "wannabe artist" I'm going to respectfully disagree. The helmet alone is a work of art. Not to mention the fact that it opens and closes on its own.
I want that helmet. No, I need it. I don't know what I'd use it for, but I'm sure I can figure something out. If anything else, I can just wear it at the office and flick it closed when I don't feel like dealing with someone.
