"Everything is a picture waiting to be taken... " - Max Caulfield

Many of us are looking forward to Square Enix’s Presents event today that will showcase a host of various upcoming games. Although we know that there will be news around Tomb Raider and Marvel’s Avengers, Life is Strange 3 holds a certain allure to what and who the brand new character will bring to part three of the episodic series.

Leaks have appeared around the internet stating that Life is Strange 3‘s new protagonist will have the power to read people’s minds but until we know more, let’s put that down to rumours for now.

What we do know though is that Life is Strange‘s Max and Chloe who are childhood best friends, certainly made their mark in the series as players followed their complex relationship, watching it unfold in ways unimaginable. While we wait to hear more about Life is Strange 3, check out this super realistic cosplay of the characters that looks like a screenshot from the game.

Who are the Max and Chloe cosplayers?

Artist and crafter of costumes ‘Lorien Kappa‘ posted her Life Is Strange attire on Instagram and it’s pretty easy to see why it was such a success. Portraying Max Caulfield, or any character, so brilliantly takes a lot of talent. It’s not about simply slipping on some similar clothes and calling it a day – you basically need to morph into the character and become them at that moment.

Another amazing cosplayer, Yarpenna, joins Max at the Two Whales Diner as Chloe who oozes and nails the Life is Strange character in her laidback and punk attitude as she slouches across the diner seat across from Max.

Photographer ‘stygivi‘ is the person who put all the pieces together to make this image as good as it is by highlighting the couple and setting a slight blur on the objects in the background. You can view all of the images, below. I personally love the picture of Max and Chloe on the railway track and also the image of Max trying to stop an ongoing train with her supernatural abilities.

If you haven’t yet and fancy giving Life is Strange 2 a go, it is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux.
