Cosplay Wednesday – Destiny’s Hunter

Destiny Hunter Cosplay – Gamers Heroes

Bungie’s Destiny is home to a diverse collection of both flora and fauna. It was only a matter of time before somebody took to creating a cosplay from this unique MMO. However, one Bungie employee got the jump on everyone with this spot-on Hunter cosplay…months before the game was even released.

Sloan Hood is a fan of two things: cosplay and Destiny. He chose to cosplay as Destiny’s Hunter for Halloween 2013 due to the character’s outfit being a mixture of armor and fabric. In addition, Sloan Hood chose the Hunter for this simple reason:

“I also chose the Hunter because that’s the class I like to play. Quick, sneaky, lethal.”

In addition, Sloan Hood also created the Thorn from the ground up. Starting with a 3D model of the gun, he started cutting and capping hi-poly models with up to a million triangles so a printer could begin the process. Needless to say, this is one authentic cosplay.
