"Please don't let this guy get too into character - I don't want to die!" Second thing I'm thinking of course, "Wouldn't it be cool if he got too much into character and started beating the sh!t out of everyone there!"
Hilarious but definitely one the most awesome cosplay I have ever seen. The attention to detail is simply amazing. The heavy breathing, fighting stance, lifting the door open, etc... Now if he had a half naked chick aka Aphrodite next to him, my mind would have been blown.
How many steroids injections did that guy take? He makes barry bonds look like a child :P I have to admit that looks pretty damn close to the real kratos though!
I wish a Minotaur would of just jumped on him out of no where and he ripped it's mouth apart squirting blood everywhere. Yeah that's what's missing
Golden Fleece would have made it even cooler.
lol that was Awesome, I want the Blades of Chaos...
he's a giant did you see how much taller he is then everyone else once he walks forward a bit 8.
I'm gonna push to make that my 2010 Halloween costume!
the sad thing is if they make a GOW movie whoever the kratos they get wont look even remotely close to this
I live in Brazil, Sao Paulo (where this happened), but I missed the midnight launch (thanks college, never hated it so much). Many of my friends where there. I asked them and the muscles are real, the makeup looks better in the video then for real. The guy didn't talk because apparently not only the voice don't match but also he is not a good english speaker and the promoter of the event didn't want to make it sound odd. Funniest think that where also captured in the video is that some guys wanted to call security as a prank (you can hear ''chama o segurança'' just before the end of the video), just imagine Kratos getting angry and beating the hell out of the poor guy. lol Now, this was one of the real rare midnight launchs in here, Sony made a lot of promises for Brazil and has fullfilled a little. They have the PS2 factory ready, but it's not producing PS2s here for some reason, also the games are still all import (official PS3 game price is 199R$, which is like 110US$, not going down if they keep importing thanks to abusive tax from gov, but that is actually GOOD compared to what some game prices reached before, specially at legal stores). And where the hell is my Brazillian PS Store, there is a PSN setted, but it's running on US servers, there is no store or home, my real adress only let me play games and that's it. Just recently brazillians have been prompted to that turning off error complaint screen, and there is little to no support from Sony for peripheral or consoles, everyone still getting them on grey market, same for third party games... I know they are just getting started at Brazil and Latin America as a whole, but they need to step up, MS and Ninty are becoming more price and support agressive here too.
It looked particularly impressive right after he lifted the door open and started looking around...looked exactly like Kratos. Very good cosplay.
Wow this guy actually does look very similar to Kratos
They should have had someone tapping a big circle button while he was doing it.
roam aimlessly and grunt ever so often - perfect!
HE LOOKS JUST LIKE KRATOS OMG LOL! now if he has the voice, there you got your kratos for the movies lol :P
So this kratos can kill them all
That's pretty creepy. I think some of those people were scared!
cool bodysuit. i want one. no those are not real muscles in case you were wondering
Yes, those are real muscles but the makeup enhances the effect
lol @ the heavy breathing and looking around, hes really been paying attention to the game
I found this hilarious.
I found it pretty cool but kinda awkward too
If he'd walked out and spent a minute looking badass it'd have been flawless, but once I got over being impressed I kinda felt sorry for him.
Wow... what an actor! He has the movements DOWN!
Kratos the cro-mag?
Now they are ready for a movie
Now if somebody would be kind enough to edit this video to place the corresponding "circle" button below the screen. Then, it would've been more EPIC! -End statement
Now we just need Helios... hehe, ya know what I'm sayin!
i got a build like that after 4 years of gyming
those muscles do not flex, watch when he poses pay attention to the shoulders. Now go youtube bodybuilding competitions and see the difference. also notice all the shadowing. Oh and this is ingame graphics, no CGI at all ;)
that he has a paint job so even if he flexed it wouldnt be very visible in that lighting conditions ... and dont tell me they are not real coz if u go to the gym a good gym with body builders u met ppl way more cut that that guy..
you people are so full of sh!t it's not even funny. open your eyes dumbasses. stupid. stupid. stupid. you are blind ha ha. its okay though. I've been working out for 15 years man. Oh well I'll leave you ladies to ogle over this lol
Best Man at my wedding is confirmed!
Brazil FTW !
Isnt he the Bass Player from System of a Down? http://www.soil.kgb.pl/imag...
No its not Shavo from System, but i can see where you see the similarties... I want system back!! ------------------------ He does a great job with the character, but its dissapointing because the only thing he does is breath heavily and scream...come on go to some people and scare the crap out of them!
Man these videos are awesome. This series is so damn good. /salute Santa Monica.
i want to meet chratos
i was hoping for "there will only be chaos" that would of made it complete for me xD
this guy is making Kratos looking like a primate
lol at people saying they arent real muscles. as has been said, if you get out of your bedroom once in a while and go into the outside world - especially a gym - youd see dozens of guys who make this fella look like a pansy in comparison. very cool costume though, could make for some awesome promo shots, and even awesome-er p!ss-take photos lol.
Lol that's nothing but win. I wanted him to yell out "ZEUS!!!"
Sony/Santa Monica didn't discover this guy for the main US launch and arrange to fly him in. Can you imagine him stood in line at the airport check in? "Err......anything to declare, Mr Kratos, sir.....?" "I AM THE GOD OF WAR !" !
I mean.... the needed to give him a stole ffs... otherwise... a look-a-like.
Kratos FTW! Awesome!!
