E3 is HUUUUGE and every year I get to see what games are coming out and plan ahead for costumes that are just so gorgeous I know I have to make them. Check out the Indie games that I’ve thought have the most cosplay potential!
We Happy Few

It’s 1960s Mod meets Bioshock. This is probably the first case of Pharmpunk, where the player rebels against a pharmaceutically-induced utopia. The costumes are amazing, and amazingly creepy. It’s nice to see distopias that are colourful and stylish instead of just steel and glass.
Available for XboxOne, PC
Creeping out people at comic cons, game cons and Halloween. Channeling your inner creeper.

You remember Journey? Sure you do. This is the same Art Director, but this time instead of wandering, we’re exploring underwater by swimming with fish. Plus you can RIDE A SHARK.

You’re a ballerina dancing through your childhood memories.
OK this isn’t a legit indie, it’s made by Sony. BUT, it certainly looks like it could be indie given that its a lyrical puzzle game based on intangible concepts.
Anyone who wants to feel graceful.
