Booker DeWitt from Bioshock | DIY Costume Guide


Let’s Cosplay Booker DeWitt

Booker DeWitt is the main character of Bioshock Infinite of the popular Bioshock series.

He is also the first of the player-characters in that series to actually be given his own persona and is not a silent ‘model’ for which the player uses to play the game.

As such, he warrants a little discussion first:

Alright, now let’s get to cosplaying him:

  • Dockers belt belt.jpg
  • Black vestvest.jpg
  • Shotgunshotgun.png
  • Bioshock sky hook replicaskyhook.jpg
  • Leather shoulder holstershoulder-holster.jpg
  • Red scarfscarf.jpg
  • Black dress shirt with french cuffsdhirt.jpg
  • Curad rolled gauzegauze.jpg

So Booker’s cosplay basically boils down to a lot of “wear this as you normally would in real life” instructions. After all, most of these items are just ‘regular’ clothing. Simply don them like you would any other time.

However, the exceptions are that the ‘sky hook’ may not be completely necessary and the gauze may also be disregarded.

Note: that if you’re thinking that it’s a good idea to have a real shotgun as part of your costume...well you should definitely reconsider. Walking around with a deadly weapon is not a good idea, generally speaking. Surely, there are very few convention centers that would allow cosplayers to do so.

Anyways, enjoy your costume!
