The Last of Us Part II’s Ellie Comes Face to Face With Clickers in This Tense Cosplay
Check out these fantastic The Last of Us Part 2 cosplay shots as well as a fan-made short video depicting Ellie's road to vengeance.
The Last of Us Part 2 has done pretty well for itself, hasn’t it? Not only was it the third highest-grossing game ever on PlayStation in the US selling over four million copies in its first week but it continued to delight fans around the world by implementing a new grounded mode last month where players could experience permadeath and unlockable modifiers to change things up in how they play the game. But what I think really defines The Last of Us Part 2 isn’t just its gameplay, it’s the fandom and how far dedicated fans go to show their love for this incredible title. I’ve harped on in previous articles about how intricate and time-consuming cosplaying really is but to show us how much is actually put into this activity, check out this brilliant cosplay of Ellie and the Clickers from The Last of Us Part 2.
If you’re a Last of Us fan here at DualShockers, you may remember this article of Nieke who portrayed the formidable Abby in her fierce cosplaying adventure. This time, photographer Carlos Adama from London is back again with more of his shots but this time the focus is on Ellie. As you can see from Carlos’ incredible photography skills and Ellie (played by opal.ink.cosplay) who does a fantastic job at stepping into the shoes of the game’s protagonist, the scene is dripping with atmospheric tension as Clickers approach Ellie who is hiding beside an abandoned car, just like you’d see her do throughout the gameplay.
Some of Carlos’ other shots showcase Ellie being surrounded by two Clickers but as she’s equipment with her trusty switchblade, there’s a good chance she’ll make it out of it alive. Another image depicts Ellie running up some stairs being closing followed by more Clickers. This shot by Carlos is probably my favorite due to the amount of work that’s obviously been put into this particular scene. We can see some spores flying around as well as the haunting red hue from the bottom of the steps giving this image a really intense and heart-thumping moment. You can check out all of Carlos’ pictures over on his Instagram right here where there’s a buffet of The Last of Us Part 2 stills to feast your eyes on as well as some of his other work that includes The Shining, Cyberpunk 2077, and Bioshock.
You can also follow and see what all of the cosplayers from the pictures are up to on Instagram by heading over to their personal page:
That’s not all though as there is also a video shot to go alongside these awesome pictures. In a fanmade film made by Samuel Triggs that includes the cosplayers from Carlos’ photo-shoot, we see a fantastically produced video highlighting the road of vengeance that Ellie takes. The cosplayers and some amateur filmmakers from all around the United Kingdom who have a passion for projects and The Last of Us Part 2, all came together for one day only to film this profound and compelling sequence of events. Throughout the short film, Joel and Ellie make their way around an abandoned building surrounded with clickers and we even see Abby making an appearance too with it then ending in a fight scene between Ellie and Abby that cuts off in anticipation for the filmmakers part 2. Make sure you check out the entirety of the film below, it’s a must for any The Last of Us Part 2 fan.
The Last of Us Part 2 is available now exclusively on PS4 (and soon to be PS5). The game was one of DualShockers’ favorites of 2020; make sure to check out the official DualShockers (generally spoiler-free) review. Also, feel free to grab the game physically on Amazon to help support the site.
