PHOTOS: Another ‘Awww’-Inspiring Moment from Journey

March 19, 2012

The Art of Video Games exhibit kicked off last weekend at the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. The opening event, GameFest, featured appearances from quite a few reputable names from the games industry: Atari found Nolan Bushnell, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and the crew from thatgamecompany, who were enjoying much critical acclaim for their latest release, Journey.

Such a games-centric event would not be complete without cosplay. I went to Katsucon a month ago, so I thought I had seen all the good cosplay I could for the year. And then I met Eve, an art intern for Pure Bang Games in Baltimore, Maryland. Journey fans (erm, Journey game fans; not the 1970s band, hurr), just check out this incredible cosplay:

On Saturday, thatgamecompany executive producer Robin Hunicke gave a presentation (which is you missed it, you can catch up on what Robin said about Journey here), followed by an autograph session. I had been watching people get their books, game cases and manuals and signed all day long. Eve had something even more special though—the costume.
