This Might Be The Last Cosplay You Would Expect From Japan

When you think of Japan and cosplay, you probably imagine ladies dressed in skimpy anime outfits or dudes in Gundam gear. And you’d probably be right! That type of cosplay is prevalent, sure, but it’s not the only game in town — especially with more and more Japanese players totally digging Call of Duty.

Recently on Japanese bulletin board 2ch, one cosplayer showed off his latest creation: a Juggernaut, which first appeared in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s Special Ops Mode. The outfit weighed a hefty 20kg — 30kg when carrying weapons — and took 30 minutes to put on.

Some wondered where someone would go dressed like this, while other said the outfit looked better when it wasn’t being worn. “Isn’t this somewhat off balance?” asked one commenter. Added another, “It looks cool. But heavy.”

The outfit does look better all geared up with the necessary weapons. Running around between warehouses helps pull off the outfit too.

In case you missed it, here is Kotaku‘s roundup of some of the best Call of Duty cosplay the internet has to offer.
