The Last of Us Clicker Cosplay Takes Mutation to Another Level

Just when you think things couldn't get any worse, a cosplayer decides to dress up as a Clicker from The Last of Us.

The Clickers in The Last of Us are just terrifying, there’s no other way to describe them. With their penetrating clicking sound, high pitch screaming when they spot you and the horrendous fungus protruding out of every orifice, they aren’t something you want to stumble across on a dark night – or ever. But then there are cosplayers who love nothing more than dressing up as these virus-infected, spore popping creatures for the fun of it, can you even imagine? Although in saying that, one cosplayer, in particular, has done a pretty good job at recreating these forbidding terrors with amazing results.

Cosplayer making.amess.cosplay shows us how well she can slip into the shoes of one of the infected from The Last of Us. Not only has she crafted the massive bulging Cordyceps fungus-infected brain with remarkable ease, but she has also perfected the fungus ridden attire to go along with it and has crafted the entire mask by herself. making.amess.cosplay used a general plastic Halloween mask as the base and then covered it in spray polyurethane foam. Once that dried, she carved into it and painted it using a handy clicker makeup tutorial on YouTube.

In one picture, we see Ellie getting munched on by the infected cosplayer with the tagline “Amanda’s face is our mood after finding out Part 2 is indefinitely delayed because of coronavirus”. I think that’s all our moods after hearing that The Last of Us Part 2 would yet again be delayed due to the effects of the pandemic the world is currently struggling through and then subsequently being removed from the PlayStation store. Naughty Dog game director Neil Druckmann discussed in the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast about the circumstances of the delay and the effect it’s had on the team, the options being considered for the game’s eventual launch, the problems with releasing a demo in the meantime, and how much work is left to be done on the title.

If you don’t want to be spoiled at all for the impending launch of The Last of Us Part 2 (whenever that will bethen you’re better off not watching the latest leaked game footage showing Ellie playing the guitar and running around a theater. Although the video has since been removed from YouTube but not before obtaining 50,000 views and a mass of people downloading it.

The Last of Us 2 was originally set to release late in May but as of now, no release date has been rescheduled. As always, when any The Last of Us Part 2 news drops in, you can be sure that DualShockers will have it covered.
