Cosplay Wednesday – Alien’s Ellen Ripley

Players will once again take on the xenomorphs with the upcoming release of Aliens: Fireteam Elite. In honor of this shooter, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a cosplay that dates all the way back to 1979.

Invested in the world of cosplay since 2008, came designer and prop maker ver1sa turned her sights to Alien’s Ellen Ripley with her tribute. She’s certainly got the weaponry for the job, along with the kitty to match.
