Klei Entertainment’s Don’t Starve isn’t just an exercise in survival — it’s also a super-popular game with a killer aesthetic. With the recent release of the game on the PlayStation Vita, a new generation of fans have recently been subjected to Wilson’s roguelike adventure. In honor of this port, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a dead-on cosplay of Don’t Starve’s Willow.

Russian cosplayer DarkInquisitor666 (aka Polina Maslennikova) takes a break from cosplaying as Dexter’s Laboratory’s bright and cheerful Dee-Dee to try her hand at Don’t Starve’s Willow. A fan of the character, DarkInquisitor666 worked hard to make it spot on. From the wig (which took three tries!) to her One-Man Band item, she captures the essence of the character quite well. But don’t take our word for it — Klei Entertainment gave her some much deserved praise on her DeviantArt page.
