Now that the game’s out, and it’s rather good, you can bet we’ll be up to our eyeballs in cosplay paying homage to The Last of Us. Cosplay that’s going to have to work very hard to beat this effort, which transformed a model from a regular human into a “clicker”, one of the worst monsters you’ll face in the game.

The shoot was made possible thanks to the efforts of three people: make-up artist Jon Wilks, photographer Adrian and model/infected Emma Franks, who earlier this month visited an abandoned mental hospital in England (so perfect) and took a series of amazing photos.


I am looking at these, I am hearing the noise, I am picturing her making the noise, and I am getting nervous.
