Cosplay Wednesday – Borderlands’ Athena

Borderlands Athena Cosplay - Gamers Heroes
The Borderlands series has long laid dormant, with the last release happening in 2014. As we patiently await Borderlands 3, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of Athena.

Cosplayer, photographer, and internet personality Its-Raining-Neon (aka DeAnna Davis) is no stranger to the world of cosplay, and has turned her sights to Borderlands’ Athena in these cosplay shots. She loves playing as her, and feels that she might be the most balanced “tank” character. Credit goes to Cozpho Photography, Nicole Ciaramella Photography, and Omaru for the additional photos.

He has previously worked with gaming start-ups like Raptr, publishers like Konami, and roller derby girls at PAX West (check out Jam City Rollergirls)! Gamers Heroes is a passion project for him, giving him a chance to tap into the underground side of gaming. He is all too eager to give these lesser-known heroes of the indie space the attention they so rightly deserve, seeking out the next gem and sharing it with the world. Previously making appearances at events like CES, GDC, and (the late) E3, he is all too happy to seek out the next big thing.
