RipTen: "With new Borderlands 2 DLC coming out soon, I figured it was time to reflect on the game. This amazing costume was spotted at Wondercon at the end of March, shortly after the new DLC was announced. A high school girl who cut off her own arm (on purpose!) and an anti-bullying project that can squash and shred just about anything on Pandora … Together, they make up the Mechromancer.
Gaige and Deathtrap are both parts of this costume, created by and cosplayed by Lyz Brickley. All of the Mechromancer cosplays I’ve seen have been of the default costume and hair –and no DT. DT is one mean machine, and his eye really does light up (although no Thunderclap, yet!). I offer all the cupcakes I can find to Brickley for making her robot and remembering to paint the stand in a way that allows it to be photoshopped out. It really does make for good photography."
