Here’s the winner of the Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition

1 min read

We’ve got one of the very, very sought after Final Fantasy XV Collector’s Editions to give away. The thing is worth more than Darryn, and is probably of more use, too. Honestly, just look at this thing:


The competition entry mechanic this time though, was a little different from the usual “fill in a form and hope chooses you.” We wanted a mixture of creativity and craft – so we asked you to either craft a fun and low-budget cosplay or, failing that, use your favourite photo editing software to do it for you. The reason we didn’t really want proper, finely crafted cosplay is it’s prohibitive.

There are a great many of you who have spent years putting together masterful, hand-crafted costumes of your favourite characters – and those people who have an unfair advantage.

Anyway, after going through the entries – some of which displayed exactly the sort of creativity we were looking for – there was one clear winner. And here it is.

Perfectly in the spirit of things, this abysmal but completely on-point cosplay is a wonderful recreation of one of the series most iconic scenes – that made us laugh, and then cry. Potential spoilers for FF7 aside, this was awesome, and it was possibly the tinfoil spaulder and the ponytail that clinched it. Details!


Here’s our runner up (which was also amazing), followed by a small handful of the ones that we thought were pretty good!

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
