Hallogeenlamp revealed in the thread that she picked up the mask from a Borderlands Gamescom booth. However, not satisfied with the original design, it took her 20 hours to completely repaint it.

That axe looks like it could do some damage

No corners have been cut in the design of this cosplay as even the axe is magnificently detailed. It’s not very often you can look at a cosplayer and say they look like they have been pulled directly out of a game.

There’s no doubt that Hallogeenlamp’s cosplay is flawless from top to bottom and a magnificent tribute to the Borderlands franchise. You can find her on Twitter at @apocalypse_cos.
