When Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami returned to survival horror with The Evil Within, the game had a somewhat polarizing effect on fans of the genre. Even if you weren’t as enamored with it as I was, there’s no denying that it had a uniquely stylish cast of creatures, every one of which I wouldn’t mind seeing get tackled by talented cosplayers.
This is partly why I love this Leslie Withers cosplay so much, because he’s absolutely the last character I’d expect to see inspire brilliant cosplay like this.
Assuming the role of the mousy Withers is cosplayer Nero Hell, with make-up by Katrin Miralika and photography courtesy of Dokura-chan. You can find more of Nero’s work on his Tumblr.
