Best Fortnite Cosplay of 2018

If you have any interest in Fortnite cosplay whatsoever, you probably have already seen these photos floating around the internet. Rising YouTuber and streamer Gibson didn't really know what he was getting into when he started pulling together the pieces to make this costume - and it's his first one ever. 

Struck by just how cool the Drift skin looks in the game, he really just wanted one for himself. And, it seems, so does the Internet. The original Twitter post from July has exploded, now with over 10k retweets and more than 50k likes. I suspect the number has slowed, but it certainly hasn't stopped rising. 

Deceptively simple, most accused Gibson of simply buying all the pieces and wearing them. (Which, hey, outside of the inherent snobbishness of the cosplay community, would be perfectly all right.)

Rest assured, that there was certainly more work involved than a credit card, and this guy put in the effort to paint all those details on that eye-catching mask himself. (You know it's why you stopped and looked.)
