Ratchet and Clank Cosplay That Is Also Fanfiction

ratchet and clank cosplay

The video game Ratchet and Clank has been around since 2002 and like most franchises with that sort of history, it has a devoted fanbase. One fan, divisionten, decided to combine two aspects of fandom: cosplay and fanfiction. She made Ratchet and Clank costumes over the course of six months and went outside with the oppressively warm and heavy outfit – the entire Ratchet costume with Clank is 30-40 pounds – in ninety degree weather to create a story. Clank is strapped to Ratchet’s back. Divisionten said:

He’s a backpack with removable straps. When he’s off, straps can come out (they thread through the bolt on his back). When he’s on, the backpack straps are pulled through the holes in the back of Ratchet’s armor and over the leather vest (yes, those holes in the armor are part of the original design in game). It’s no different than wearing an actual backpack.

You can see part of the straps under my armpits if the arms are raised, but they’re made from the same material as the vest, so you really need to look closely. I tried neodymium magnets, but they just didn’t keep Clank steady and upright.

The shoot was staged in such a way that it goes with a piece of fanfic. You can read the story in its entirety on Kotaku.

  1. Just a head’s up, I’m division ten, and I’m actually a girl! I’m just very good at hiding my gender/sex in costume. 🙂

  2. Hi! I’m divisionten! I’m actually a girl (and if you look at the end of the original article it says “contact her on social media”). I’m flattered you think I pass as male, but I’m not!
