This 'Metal Gear Rising' Raiden Cosplay Is So Impressive, Hideo Kojima Himself Approves

Cosplay is an incredible community, filled with creative fans that have a talent for bringing some of our favorite characters into the real world -- often with their own personalized spin. There are so many amazing cosplayers out there, but one Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance cosplay in particular was so impressive, it even garnered the attention of Hideo Kojima himself!

The cosplayer in question goes by 'Shiori Raiden' on social media, which -- appropropriate, and shared even more takes of his impressive cosplay over on his Instagram:

The attention to detail is beyond incredible, truly bringing the character to life in a stunning way. From the styling of the wig, to the armor itself, to say this creation is breathtaking is a massive understatement!

For those that don't know, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance first made its debut back in 2013 and tasked players with becoming a katana-wielding cyborg named Raiden. The game itself was met with incredible fan feedback, but this cosplayer took that title appreciation to an entirely new level with this amazing tribute.
