Cosplay Wednesday – The Last of Us’ Joel

After years of anticipation, The Last of Us Part II is almost here. As we get ready to adventure with Ellie, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of the protagonist of the original title, Joel.

Photographer frostshattered got these shots of Hayokamashi Cologne as Joel during GamesCom 2015. He’s certainly got the right weaponry for the job, even if the Cordyceps fungus got the best of him.

Casey Scheld has more than 15 years of experience in the gaming industry as a community manager, social media director, event specialist, and (of course) gaming editor. 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.
