Cosplay Wednesday – G.I. Joe’s Ripper

Based on the IDW comic series, G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout brings the time-honored series to a new generation of consoles. As players take on the role of Duke, Snake Eyes, and the Cobra Commander, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of Ripper.

As a huge fan of the series, negativedreamer’s cosplay of G.I. Joe was a bit surreal for him when this cosplay made its appearance at Megacon 2012 and 2013. As he mentioned, having a mohawk for the first time in his life took a bit of getting used to.
