Cosplay Wednesday – The Last of Us’ Clicker

Cosplay Wednesday - The Last of Us' Clicker

The Last of Us wowed critics and gamers earlier this year with its amazing post-apocalyptic atmosphere and Clicker threat. But what if this threat was real? One hobbyist makes the Clickers a reality with this absolutely deadly cosplay.

Hobbyist JWBeyond and his model Emma Franks made this clicker getup from the ground-up. The total cost of the materials was only £49, using three cans of Foam Polyfilla to make the particularly nasty infection.

The crazy thing is, JWBeyond was not originally a gamer. He was originally drawn to the killer Cordyceps fungi he saw in BBC’s Planet Earth, and decided to make it a reality once he saw the trailer for The Last of Us. No need to worry though — he bought a PS3 a week before the game’s release and is now happily addicted.
