We’ve featured German cosplayer Maul a ton of occasions on Kotaku, possibly greater than some other particular person cosplayer, and there’s an excellent motive for that: simply take a look at these images.
Whereas he’s finest recognized for his recurring takes on Geralt of Rivia, starting from “being Geralt” to “being Geralt skateboarding in LA”, Maul has additionally completed a ton of labor—each paid (like this, this one’s an advert for PlayStation) and private—on sequence like Dishonored, Cyberpunk and Metallic Gear Stable as properly.
Right this moment, although, we’re his newest shoot, an unbelievable tackle God of Warfare’s Kratos for the discharge of Ragnarok that sees Maul (and his workforce) nailing nearly every little thing, from the costume to the weathered leather-based to the bodypaint to the muscular tissues to the beard to…extra muscular tissues (which, regardless of Maul’s appreciable dimension IRL, are on this case a swimsuit)
He’s joined by Korriban Cosplay, as Kratos’ son Atreus, and collectively they make about pretty much as good an inspiration for Amazon’s live-action TV adaptation as you’re ever going to get.
Additionally engaged on the costumes and shoot had been Maja Felicitas, Lenora Costumes, hair specialists Bakka Cosplay, Tingilya Cosplay, Bucky Props & Cosplay, Flying Illustration, whereas all images had been taken by top-of-the-line within the enterprise, eosAndy.
Ragnarok is out right this moment, however we reviewed it final week, the place Zack had this to say:
Sure, the axe is cool. Certain, the fights are tons of enjoyable. And I positively loved exploring each nook and cranny of the massive worlds you get to go to. However what stored me glued to my PS5 for practically 40 hours was the story of a son turning into a person and a father attempting to determine how he feels about that. I most likely may have loved this story a tad extra with about half as many puzzles and ability menus, besides, I discovered myself smiling, feeling happy, because the credit rolled. As I mentioned at first, God of Warfare Ragnarök is excellent.
