A NSFW Cosplay Tribute To Shadow Of The Colossus

ColossalCon - one of the biggest cosplay shows of the year - just wrapped up in Sandusky, Ohio. And what better way to cosplay for a show called ColossalCon than by recreating the boss roster of Shadow of the Colossus.

Taking a similar approach to the NSFW group Overwatch shoot from last year (this was again organised by cosplay superstar Stella Chuu), 16 girls (the Colossi) and one guy (Wander, aka 89styles) joined some photographers in the fields outside the con to ... well, if not recreate the action of the game, then at least show off some very creative uses of fake moss.

A lot of work went into this. It would have been easy to just say "haha let's do a NSFW Shadow of the Colossus shoot" and stick some hooves on a swimsuit, but everyone involved has gone to town adding the smallest details to each costume, like weak spots and glowing lights.

There's also a fantastic amount of interpretation going on; some Colossi could be replicated pretty straight-up, but others have taken some interesting adaptations to get them fitting on a human body.

The shoot below (and video above) was taken by Mineralblu, who will also have some coverage of ColossalCon as a whole for us later in the week, so stay tuned for that.

NOTE: AS SUGGESTED IN THE HEADLINE, SOME OF THESE ARE A LITTLE NSFW, SO BE WARNED.

    Does anyone else get instantly turned off girls with tattoos? That and smoking instantly kill any attraction there might have been.

      No way, sure it makes cosplay tricky. But chicks with ink are great.

      Tattoos? As long at its not on the face i dont care.

      Smoking is a definite attraction killer for sure. Im not attracted to someone who is gonna give me cancer from second hand smoke.

        Smoking doesn't make someone attractive to me, but I tell you what, an attractive person smoking is pretty hot IMO :-)

          Nah an attractive person smoking instantly turns into an unattractive person.

      I don't mind chicks with tattoos. But it really depends on how much ink and the image.
      But smoking definitely is a no for me.

      No. Hell NO. Ink on anyone (done well) is sexy AF! All I see is 16 stunningly beautiful women cosplaying one of my fave games, while standing in a paddock. It's like free range mixed with all you can eat! Yummy!

        Except no. 3..... she can be Bosley.

          Obviously some people don't understand the reference.

      Hell no...

      Sometimes it's fun to look at them all or go searching for the hidden ones.

      No way man. I'll be judgemental if it's a tacky design, but I loooooove some well-crafted ink.

      I'm glad everyone is telling you who you should be attracted to. What a free world we live in.

      I don't know. If it's artfully chosen it can be a thing of beauty. Some tattoos are just like bad clip art though. Poorly chosen and inexpertly applied.

    Ah Sandusky OH, starting zone for Leather Goddesses of Phobos (that's old school gaming for the younger readers).

    I dunno if I'd call this NSFW. It's more like "ehhhh you won't get fired, but probably get some strange looks"

      I closed it quick before my Boss walked by just to avoid the conversation about it. He's a total tool.

        And also reads Kotaku Rowan.. See me after work!

          Hahaha! His name is Andrew as well. Damn!

          But my real name is not Rowan so... I'm... safe? Maybe?

          Plus if you really are my boss, you know you're a tool. That's why you're always complaining that everyone hates you. Right after a 10minute diatribe about how amazing you are. Then almost crying because no-one wants your 'guidance'.

          I feel for the guy but god damn I wish I didn't have to work with him. He's a real mess.

          If he saw this article I'd have to listen to 1)- which ones he would bang in which order or 2) 20 minutes about how this is disgusting and all gamers are the worst or 3) how he's been a die hard gamer since the 80s and how this is ruining gaming.

          All options are just as bad because they require listening to his garbage.

        I should point out that I'm the boss in my company lol. So I personally wouldn't mind if I saw an employee looking at those images.

        I'd be more pissed that they're not working! IT BETTER BE LUNCH BREAK.

    Shadow of the Colossus

    Ehh?

    And who says cosplay isn't largely performing problematic femininity to please the male gaze.
