Emma Rubini takes us back to the 1980s with this impressive Tank Girl cosplay, inspired by Jamie Hewlett’s original black-and-white comics. “They told me I could be anything,” she wrote on Facebook. “So I became a comic book.”
There’s little arguing with that, as Rubini not only mimics the white page but also the black ink lines, best showcased on the shorts, tank top and hair.
Noting the growing attention she’s received online for the cosplay, Rubini offers words of encouragement for cosplayers who think they could never achieve the same effect.
“I made my first cel shaded cosplay in 2014 (almost exactly two years ago), Gaige from Borderlands 2,” she wrote. “The photo on the left is from the first time I tried that costume on. As you can see, it wasn’t great. But I kept working, making other cel shaded cosplays along the way, including a revamp of Gaige last summer (now it’s one of my favorite cosplays!) So don’t say that you can’t do it, whether “it” is cel shading, cosplay in general, or any other art form, especially if you’re just starting out. And don’t bash people whose skills aren’t what they could be, because that will discourage them from becoming better at all.”
