BioShock Infinite studio Irrational Games has hired a Russian cosplayer to become the "official face" of the game's Elizabeth character. Anna Moleva, often known as "Ormeli," comes from Moscow and had previously created what Irrational called an "uncanny portrayal" of Elizabeth (below).
"We were so amazed by her dedication and her resemblance to Elizabeth that we decided to ask her if she’d like to be involved in helping bring Elizabeth to life in our box, our key art, and our upcoming television ad," Irrational Games creative director and cofounder Ken Levine said in a blog entry to the studio's website.
Moleva will also make special appearances at certain events to promote BioShock Infinite, Levine said. These were not detailed.
BioShock Infinite was originally scheduled to launch during October 2012, but was delayed to February 26, 2013 in May. Levine recently confirmed that the game will not feature multiplayer, which had been speculated following the departure of several of Irrational's top developers.
