Double Fine’s Grim Fandango has risen from the dead with the recent release of Grim Fandango Remastered. As travel agent Manuel “Manny” Calavera gears up for his work at the Department of Death, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a true-to-life cosplay of this reaper.

Lilliestierna (aka Alvin) puts on his best face for his Grim Fandango cosplay. In these photos taken at Närcon by the photographer Hampus, Lilliestierna enjoys a smoke while thinking of his next witty line.
