Be Sponsored to Cosplay

As ridiculous as that sounds, Red 5 Studios has launched a program for people that want to do ‘professional cosplay’ and the first person on their books is cosplayer, Crystal Graziano who will be sponsored for a whole year to attend conventions and promotions as well as supply a professional portfolio.

“Because Firefall’s sci-fi world and story are so rich and colorful, we see there being a lot of interest from artists and designers,” said Red 5 CEO and Chief Creative Officer, Mark Kern. “Developers should embrace these individuals because they add so much to the universe, both in-game and out. This program is our way of showing appreciation and support for what they contribute to the game and community.”

Red 5 has once again called upon the masterful craftsmanship of award-winning Hollywood FX artist, Steve Wang, to create the Mourningstar costume. Complete with lights and effects, this epic cosplay will bring an unprecedented level of realism and detail to Firefall’s Mourningstar character. Red 5 has released a video showing the initial fitting for Steve Wang’s costume…

So, see ladies (or guys too, I guess), all that dressing up you did as a kid could pay off if you do it right 😉
