Soon after Irrational Games introduced the world to the character of Elizabeth, a Russian cosplayer by the name of Anna “Ormeli” Moleva created an uncanny set of cosplay photographs. Originally, the photos were meant for a gaming expo she was involved with and were never intended for general Internet consumption. When she saw the results, however, she felt the need to share the pictures online.
Pretty much everyone with an interest in BioShock Infinite has seen Ormeli’s photos. The game’s developer, Irrational Games, has seen the pictures as well and clearly loved them enough to hire Ormeli to be the official face of Elizabeth. Studio head Ken Levine said in an official statement: “We were so amazed by her dedication and her resemblance to Elizabeth that we decided to ask her if she’d like to be involved in helping bring Elizabeth to life in our box, our key art and our upcoming television ad.”
Most of the work that Ormeli is doing with Irrational Games is still in progress, however you will have already seen some of the results in the online banner adverts for the game. She’s also on the reverse side of the game’s official box art, which you can see after the jump.
You can see more of Ormeli’s amazingly accurate cosplay over on her deviantART page. She’s just done a pretty incredible Empress Jessamine from Dishonored.
