Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth are the most common characters cosplayed from BioShock Infinite. I see a couple versions of each of them at almost every convention. I rarely spot a Motorized Patriot though – not even online. Erri Kitten Cosplay’s work shows why the costume should be done more often. In the game, the Motorized Patriots that look like George Washington were helpful artificial intelligence reprogrammed as violent thugs. They’re essentially brutal robots.
Erri Kitten nailed the costume, but I specifically want to call out her makeup and Gatling Gun. The makeup captures the crumbling monument look seen in the game. The Gatling Gun (progress pictured below) appears to be made from a base of pink and purple foam.
