On most days the internet really is a tool for good. The world wide web links us globally and provides us with an infinite well of easily accessibly knowledge. On other days, the internet is a cesspool of untold horror. Today is one such day.
Not but 30 minutes ago, I was casually combing the depths of the intertubes during some spare time before dinner on a hunt for a fresh Desktop background. This is what I found:
Now, I'm going to go out a a limb and say that, although most of us have boundless love in our hearts for Team Ico's brilliant Shadow of the Colossus
, most of us would cap that love off at attempting colossi cosplay. To say that I am impressed by this spectacle would be a massive understatement. The sheer volume of creativity, ingenuity, and overall hard work that must have went into building this unique costume exists on a level that I cannot fathom.
My awe, however, does not skirt that fact that is it unbelievably SCARY
. I spent 3 hours out of my afternoon today playing EA's excellent Dead Space
. In none of that time did I encounter anything as positively mortifying as this man's getup. The combination of that dead-eyed, Batman Begins
scarecrow mask, and what my imagination envision the uncomfortable swagger that can only be his walk to be has put me in a state of shock.
Congratulations Shadow of the Colossus
cosplay man. You are a true horror of the internet, and you will occupy a special place in my deepest nightmares tonight.
