After spending some hours with Fallout 4, I've come to realize that Nick Valentine is probably one of my favorite companions [NOTE: I don't know who all the companions are, so this could be a premature statement]. I've always been drawn to characters who were slightly noir-ish detectives and Valentine completely encapsulates that for me.
So when I came across this absolutely amazing cosplay of the character, I could not get enough. It wasn't something I thought anyone would even try to do, yet Arcanum Order’s cosplay of the character is so good, I'm pretty sure they're actually a synth and this is them in their true form.
Below you can see an image of Nick from the game for comparison.
It's kind of awesome that the cosplayer went the extra mile and even got a dinged up hat to really look the part. I mean, the make-up work done to make them look like their synthy bits are showing is good enough for me. And if I had the talent to do that kind of make-up work, I'd probably stop there and get too tired to even fully deck myself out.
And that's what really makes this cosplay amazing. It's not just the amazing make-up job the cosplayer did, it's all the little things they did to really represent Nick Valentine in real life. I'm still stunned looking through photos of this getup. It's amazing. I left another pic below if you want an even closer look.
