Glitchtrap from Five Nights at Freddy’s

Glitchtrap is the main antagonist in the video game Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted. Also referred to as The Anomaly by Tape Girl, he is a digital virus confirmed to be William Afton, the original antagonist/murderer in the storyline. Whether Glitchtrap is copy, iteration, or remnant of William Afton remains unknown. In the Fazbear Virtual Experience, Glitchtrap is trapped inside the virtual game, and the goal is to merge with the player in order to escape the digital world. If this costume is for a child, you can start with the brown bunny suit as a base.

Seiko Shinohara from Corpse Party

Seiko Shinohara is your average sweet – if silly – school girl. It doesn’t save her from the darkening. But it does help her save the girl she loves from meeting the same heartbreaking fate. She is voiced by Miki Honda and Satomi Arai in the video games, and played by Youko Kita in the live-action movie, all of whom capture the sweet, sad nature of Seiko’s character.

For this cosplay I opted to go with Seiko’s appearance while alive. Unless you are going to a horror convention or an adults-only convention, it is probably best to opt for this version as Seiko’s appearance after her murder can be very upsetting for children and other convention attendees.

Seiko wears a pretty typical school uniform: White undershirt with a blue line across the chest (that you will have to paint on), tan v-neck pullover sweater, blue pleated skirt, and white shoes. Her uniform collar is blue with a yellow tie that she decorates with a brooch. She also has long brown hair which she wears with bangs and loops behind her ears. The style doesn’t exist on premade wigs so you will have to style the wig by hand.

As a final touch, pin your convention badge at your waist where Seiko wears her nametag!

The Clown from Dead By Daylight

Kenneth Chase was an athletic young man whose fascination for birds led to him drugging and killing them for their feathers. Once his obsession carried over to humans and after fleeing the police in his hometown, he joined the circus under the alias Jeffrey Hawk, using the cover of a friendly clown to hide his dark nature. This allowed him to kill many victims, keeping a finger from each. The Clown now drugs and sacrifices countless survivors as one of the killers in the game Dead by Daylight. The Clown’s costume can be recreated a few ways, depending on your personal tastes. You can use a latex mask, or recreate his clown makeup by hand, and a colorful clown costume could be made to look dingy, or a more subtly colored one could be substituted in its stead.

Bendy from Bendy and the Ink Machine

Bendy from Bendy and the Ink Machine

Bendy is the mascot of Joey Drew Studios. The studio is in fact real but a fictional version is the setting of the incredible horror-puzzle-action game Bendy and the Ink Machine. In his original form, Bendy is a classic-style cartoon with a white face and white gloves. His hair, body, and shoes are all black.

To get Bendy’s look, you only need a few select pieces. Black dress shoes with large buckles, a black bodysuit, and large white gloves make up the majority of the costume. You can get Bendy’s hair style by using a short black wig and some wig styling gel. Mime makeup will recreate the rest of his look. You can even replicate Bendy’s cartoon-style eyes by painting your eyelids with black with a white wedge so you’ll look just like Bendy when you close your eyes.

The Blight from Dead by Daylight

The Blight for Dead by Daylight

In Dead by Daylight, The Blight (Talbot Grimes) was a Scottish chemist working for the East India Trading Company during the First Opium War. He lived in denial of the human costs of his experiments, until he was taken captive and forced to confront the truth of his unethical actions in the form of a mass grave full of workers who died from his compounds. The revelation combined with his captivity and obsessive drive to experiment eventually drove him into the waiting arms of The Entity of Dead by Daylight.

Claudette Morel from Dead by Daylight

Claudette Morel is a studious botanist turned healer, and one of the original quartet of survivors in the game Dead by Daylight.

SCP 1471-A from SCP Containment

SCP 1471-A from SCP Containment Breach

SCP 1471 is a mysterious app that, once downloaded, eventually leads to the user seeing SCP 1471-A, a humanoid wolf creature with a skull for a face and creepy, milk-white eyes.  While SCP 1471-A’s true intentions are not fully understood, it is generally considered best to avoid it in the game SCP: Containment Breach.  To create an SCP 1471-A costume, you will need an animal skull mask, tattered wolf ears attached to a messy black wig, and wolf-like hands and feet.  While the game version shows SCP 1471-A dressed in black shirt and pants, there are many interpretations of its clothing, though its costume almost always includes rope tied around the waist like a belt.

Chris from Until Dawn

Chris from Until Dawn

Christopher “Chris” Hartley (voiced and acted by Noah Fleiss) is the resident geek of the Until Dawn group. He’s protective and selfless to a (potentially) fatal degree.

His costume is fairly straightforward though very warm. Basic jeans and sensible boots make up the base. Cosplayers than have to layer a white graphic tee, a blue button up, a green zip-up knit sweater, and a blue winter jacket. The shirt pictured above is not the exact shirt as that shirt does not exist. But if you can get a clear image of the shirt design from the game, many shirt makers may be able to replicate it.

Cosplayers can also add a bruise to the left side of their face if they want to recreate a mid-game look after Chris has survived a few attacks. As long as they keep the layers and the glasses, the costume will still be true to the game!
