Bayonetta ain't real, but this girl is…and she's got that whole hot witch thing down pat.
Sega of America partnered up with Maxim in order to find the best Bayonetta look-alike, and nine women entered the drool-worthy contest . Judges were asked to select the one who "best captures the essence, personality, style and appeal of the heroine of Platinum Games' upcoming action game," and that lovely lady would receive an Xbox 360, a 50-inch Panasonic TC-P50X1 HDTV Plasma TV and of course, a copy of Bayonetta for the 360. The winner? You're looking at her; it's Andrea Bonaccorso, who claims to be a big-time Sega fanatic since the age of 9:
"When I was 9 years old I begged my mom for a SEGA Genesis for Christmas. When I opened it, I screamed for about 20 minutes. For about 5 years after that, I was obsessed with all the Sonic The Hedgehog games, Toe Jam & Earl, and Rolo To The Rescue (a baby elephant in search of his mother). I didn't return to my game playing days until about 2 years ago, and now, I'm STILL obsessed with those old games. When I was little I would stay up way past my bedtime and if I died (in the game), I would be crushed. I'd be so mad that I'd beg to stay up and try again. And of course, I'd get my way and continue playing until my eyeballs were burning from not blinking. Yay Sega! Thanks for contributing to my lack of doing homework!! I recently was searching for a Maxim contest, and when I saw what this contest was for, I thought I'd be perfect for it. Had the glasses, the 'goth' costume, and the sexy look! haha!"
…okay, wow. We'll just leave it at that. You can check out the other 8 contestants and decide for yourself if the right woman won, but for our part, we're satisfied with the choice. All these hot women need to stop coming out of the closet as hardcore gamers, or my head's gonna explode.
