This Is What a $30,000 Cosplay Outfit Looks Like

By

Among the thousands of cosplayers and attendees at New York Comic Con this year, one stood, quite literally, above all the rest. The over 9-foot-tall costume lurched through crowds, parting the masses of comic fandom. The cosplay is based on Reinhardt, a hero character from Blizzard's popular first-person shooter game Overwatch. Created by Thomas DePetrillo, the costume cost, in parts and labor, upward of $30,000.
