This Borderlands Psycho Cosplay Looks Insanely Accurate
Borderlands fans are excitedly gearing up for the release of Borderlands 3 next month. After a seven year wait since Borderlands 2, the Borderlands trilogy will finally come to a close, although this does not mean that it will be the end of the series. The Borderlands series has stood out among the multitude of shooter games on the market this past decade thanks to its colorful cel-shading art style. However, this unique look has made it difficult for cosplayers to replicate the look of the games in real life. It seems that one talented cosplayer has found a way to make it work with his new Borderlands Psycho cosplay that looks insanely accurate.
Cosplayer Samainscoe recently shared his new Borderlands Psycho cosplay on his official Instagram account. The Psycho is perhaps the most infamous of enemies from the Borderlands games, due to their status as the central character featured on every game’s cover art. Samainscoe has stated that most of the forty-minute prep time needed to put on this cosplay is mostly spent on body painting, as well as adjusting some parts.
The pants required some stitching and sharpie drawing to add all of the various details seen in the game. To achieve the cel-shaded look for the body paint, Sam had to first prepare the outlines with a thick black marker, then used a white one to give the illusion of the cel-shading. Topping it off with some hairspray and some drawn-on tattoos, the Psycho cosplay was ready to hit the con floor and be stopped every five minutes for photos. This cosplay is quite impressive and shows just how passionate fans of Borderlands can be.
