We were really blown away when we saw Russian cosplayer Anna Moleva, also known as "Ormeli," dressed up as Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite . Just amazing.
But we weren't the only ones to be impressed. The game's development team, Irrational Games, saw those pictures and opted to hire Moleva to help promote one of 2013's hottest games.
As announced at Irrational's Blog , the girl who is essentially Elizabeth brought to life will become the "official face" of Bioshock Infinite thanks to her "uncanny portrayal." And "uncanny" it most certainly is. Said Irrational boss Ken Levine:
"We were so amazed by her dedication and her resemblance to Elizabeth that we decided to ask her if she’d like to be involved in helping bring Elizabeth to life in our box, our key art, and our upcoming television ad."
By the way, that costume Moleva made for her Elizabeth character took "a month or two" to make…that is one dedicated cosplayer! And if you want to learn a little more about "Ormeli," read the Q&A through the link above. You'll be seeing her a lot more in the near future, as she may be on hand at various events to help promote Infinite , and her face will definitely be more prominent on the Internet.
