BioShock Photoshoot at the Georgia Aquarium

Last week, a group of Irrational staffers, a photographer, and a big bag of swag traveled to Dragon*Con’s Night at the Georgia Aquarium in search of BioShock cosplayers. We found a whole bunch. Plus, the aquarium was a gorgeous, atmospheric setting. We took some cosplayers by surprise when we showed up with our cameras, while others had known to look for us from previous posts and tweets. All of the fans we met were incredible, and made for awesome photos.

Enjoy some of the highlights of the shoot, taken by photographer Webb Chapell, and check out the full gallery on Flickr.

Spider Splicer and Thuggish Splicer

Delta and Eleanor Lamb

Thuggish Splicers, Houdini Splicers, Spider Splicers and Sander Cohen. Oh my!

Andrew Ryan and Jasmine Jolene

Jack, a Little Sister and a Splicer

Saturnine Houdini Splicer, Dr. Steinman, Splicer, and Jack Ryan

Finally, we spotted this Little Sister during our final shoot of the night. She was happy to perform a Mr. Bubbles song for us, so we knew we had to get video to share!

Thanks again to everyone who showed up!

    Hahaha, my group was one of the ones that was surprised to see everyone there. But it was an absolutely amazing time, and I gotta thank everyone at Irrational Games who made it possible!

    What a great turnout! So much variety in that group shot. I love it! (The close-up on the main page is stunning, too.)

    I know you’ve identified yourselves in the other cosplay threads, but please sound off if you are in one of these pictures. Tell us who you are!

      I was the female Jack Ryan, and my friend was the Little Sister in the same shot. I liked the one where I was aiming my gun at the Splicer much better, I have to say. That was fun to pose for.

      I am the Jasmine Jolene in the photos. Walking around in those obnoxious shoes was worth it, haha! ;D

    Awesome collection of costumes and photos! Good to see such variety as well! The video clip of the Little Sister was great though a bit unsettling as well, almost expect an adam syringe to come down any moment on the camera

    I honestly wasn’t expecting any of this. I just dressed up like a splicer because I was going to the Aquarium. It was really insane and a great time.

    I’m not here exactly, but I am in the Flickr photo album. I’m the Jack with the wrench and my sister is the Little Sister in the black dress with the Big Daddy doll (she made it herself). I’m surprised some of the Splicers in the Photo Album didn’t get posted here… They were awesome! Serious creativity went into these costumes, gotta love events like this.

      At the end of the day we could only fit a few pictures up on the blog post because there were just too many and the post became really crowded :) That is why every picture here links to the flickr album and we link to it again at the top because all of the costumes we saw were amazing and we really want to people to go check out the full gallery. I LOVE the shot of your Jack cosplay and your sisters Little Sister costume that we caught.

        Once again, thank you guys for the opportunity. It was fun being apart of the event! Also, I think you guys did brilliant in picking these shots, it really shows the size and scope of all the people who showed up. I simply wanted to say that there were some amazingly good costumes people should check out in the flickr album. Gotta love the amazing creativity that people have!

    Awesome! I love the video of the girl singing. Kind of creepy but that’s cool. If I met her I’d probably ask for her autograph or something.

    Very good costumes! And the little girl indeed was scary but a creative song at the same time!
