Gaige from Borderlands 2


Borderlands 2

Photographer: Plamena Koeva

Мy name is Irina. I’m a 19-year old Bulgarian cosplayer. I’ve been into the hobby for 5 years now and am enjoying every single moment of it.

My Gaige costume was made in 2014 for the Bulgarian event Aniventure 2014. The costume and Deathtrap prop took me 3 months to make from scratch. Yes, the Deathtrap unit is a real prop - we only edited out the stand that holds him in the air out. An album of the working process for both the robot and costume is uploaded on my Facebook page, so feel free to check it out.

I actually liked Gaige’s concept art before the DLC was released. Then I got to listen to her Echo logs and fell in love with her personality. I guess I just love the "crazy scientist" kind of characters.

A few modifications have been made to my robot arm for the con, but sadly aren’t in the photos.

The cosplay won 3 prizes during Aniventure - Best Prop and 2 "Best game character"

I seldom cosplay famous characters so I was pleasantly surprised to see so many people recognize Gaige. Being praised by people who actually play the character felt amazing.

One of my photos was featured by the official Borderlands page and became very popular.(sadly I didn’t have a page back then).
