Remember those S.T.A.L.K.E.R. cosplayers from last year? They're back. And they've taken the last twelve months to step up their game.

Around 70 fans met up in the village of Sengileyevskoe, in the south of Russia last week for some serious S.T.A.L.K.E.R. re-enactment. Like, very serious. We're talking simulated firefights, simulated wasteland bartering, even simulated knife fights in a dimly-lit warehouse.

Our hats are off to you, crazy S.T.A.L.K.E.R. cosplayers. But from a distance. Because you're crazy.
