Set seven years after the ending of InFAMOUS 2, players control Delsin Rowe, a 24 year-old graffiti artist and delinquent. After an encounter with a “Conduit,” or someone with supernatural powers, Delsin becomes one himself, and begins to use his powers to fight the Department of Unified Protection, a government organization bent on destroying all Conduits. This week for #cosplaytuesday, we sit down with Chris Lazcano, a Massachusetts based Cosplayer who decided to rock the iconic red beanie in all its glory.

SAVAGE: How long have you been doing cosplay for, and what initially got you interested in it?

Chris: I have been cosplaying for about 3 years now! What honestly got me into cosplaying was searching online for a picture of Dante from Devil May Cry 3, and I found a picture of someone cosplaying Dante and thought to myself "I want to do that! If they can look like Dante so can I!". After that it became such a fun thing to do with friends.

SAVAGE: I read that you are apart of a cosplay group. Can you tell me a little about that?

Chris: Sure! I am part of a cosplaying/performing group called "Fifteen Fantasies"! We mostly do Masquerades at different conventions around the east coast spreading the love of dancing, performing, and cosplaying. It's a passion of ours that carries onto the stage, and conveys to the audience. Were hoping to give more explosive performances in the future.

SAVAGE: Do you get any strange reactions from friends or family when you tell them you are a cosplayer? Or are they all supportive and understanding of your hobby?

Chris: My family has been nothing but supportive, to the point where they get into playful arguments about what characters they think I should Cosplay at an upcoming convention. My friends are all supportive of me, but that doesn't mean they don't like to take playful jabs at me!

SAVAGE: What is your take on the sexisim in cosplay? Do you think the industry is starting to take notice of guy cosplayers, or is this still a female dominated scene?

Chris: Ah, now that is a hot button topic within the Cosplay community. My personal beliefs on sexism in the Cosplay community is that it's honestly alive and happening. Men are slowly starting to be noticed, but more for superhero costumes. With the rise of the comic book movie industry, guys are being given a few more choices, but there's still not as many as what females can choose from with the anime and gaming market. Unfortunately for both sides, the media is choosing to try and market this as a sexy hobby when they're just trying to have fun and as such, sex sells. To be entirely truthful, there's just as many normal guys in the hobby, but not as many pictures online, for the sole fact that sex sells.. and the majority of photographers are straight males. This is all my opinion of course.

StarCraft's Sarah Kerrigan was a Terran Ghost before being captured by the Zerg on Tarsonis. After being Infested and transformed into a twisted Zerg hybrid, she came to rule the terrifying Swarm as the self-styled Queen of Blades.

Pulling off a cosplay as intricate and stunning as Kerrigan seems almost impossible, but leave it to Russian based cosplayer, Freia-Raven to pull it off effortlessly. To see more of Freia's cosplay, check out her deviantart.

Every picture tells a story. Sometimes we don't like the ending. Sometimes we don't understand it. - This famous quote from a sneaky, mischievous kitty speaks volumes for this weeks Cosplay Tuesday Feature. Originally released for PC in October of 2000, American Mcgee's alice is a twisted take on the classic "Alice in Wonderland" story. 10 years after the conclusion of the original, Madness Returns is along with downloadable costumes for your alice Character, one being our personal favorite - the Cheshire Cat dress.

Hailing from Australia, Arleh has done a puurrfect job bringing this morbidly charming character to life. The idea to cosplay the Cheshire dress came about while organizing a cosplay group that featured all the DLC skins available for Madness Returns.

...at first there were only 3 cosplayers interested, but after opening the group up on Deviant art I managed to swindle a few more into it. And me being the bozo I am thought it would be awesome to chose one of the "cooler" costumes..... and maaaaan was that dumb! This costume turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be, and I never really finished it to the degree I wanted...

Well Arleh if it means anything, we think this costume ROCKS! It may have been the most intricate and difficult to pull off from the bunch, but your effort defiantly doesn't go un-noticed! You can check out the full group of cosplayers here.

This week for Cosplay Tuesday we are featuring Costa Rican Cosplayer, Angela Bermudez. Virginia "Pepper" Potts was originally the executive assistant to Anthony Stark, or better known as Iron Man, with whom she has been romantically involved with.

In the comics, Tony makes Pepper her own suit and she is called Rescue to which she used the suit for a time before she later destroyed it, ending her superhero career. The rescue suit almost made it in the movie: Iron Man 2 and although the Rescue armor did not appear in Iron Man 3, Pepper does briefly wear the Iron Man suit as a reference to it. She even protects Tony from falling debris, declaring "I rescued you". How Sweet!

Angela has done an amazing job constructing her own Rescue armour and even jokes at how many times people mistake this cosplay for a "Sexy Iron Man"

Cammy first hit the scene in 1993 as one of the four new characters in Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers. She is by far the most prominent, having many more game appearances than the others characters, as well as more appearances in games and other media.

Along with Chun-Li, Cammy's considered one of the femme fatales of the Street Fighter universe, her popularity quickly making her one of the most famous characters, because of her attractive and slender figure along with her strong personality and fighting skills. Finding a cosplayer that can do Cammy justice is serious business, and thats where the cosplyaing Chile native Umi Kani comes in.

Having done over 30 cosplays, Umi's most difficult creations are Momohime from "The Demon Blade" and Lightning from "Final Fantasy".
