Epic Gamers: Alex Brand Cosplay

Alex Brand CosplayIn the Gears of War comic book series, Sargeant Alex Brand is a tough-as-nails red-haired COG who has grown quite a following. Cosplayer and model Maria “MarieDoll” Ramos from Houston, TX admired the character’s emotional strength and decided to create a cosplay based on Alex.

Marie has been cosplaying since 2008, and has an amazing portfolio on deviantART. Her first cosplay was “Lenalee” from D-Gray Man. Marie also started modeling about three years ago. She started with glamor and fashion modeling, but kept the modeling separate from the cosplay until recently. She met a fantastic photographer who is happy do both and Marie has been working with Digital Asylum Studios ever since.

Procrastinator Marie says she rushed to get the Alex Brand cosplay done in time for the Houston Anime Matsuri Con because she started at the last minute. The leg armor is modified shin guards in a child’s size, since Marie is just a little over five feet tall. The guards were sanded down and spray painted with the signature Alex Brand designs. The belt was handmade from random car parts and metal pieces Marie found around her garage with the help of her friend, who is also a cosplayer who has experience creating armor.

Marie purchased the Retro Lancers through the gamestop rewards program. It is a limited edition and it’s very rare. It cost her almost 90,000 Gamestop points, which equals nearly $10,000.00 in Gamestop purchases! Maria is obviously a true gamer.

The next time you’re at a gamer or anime con, be sure to look for Marie. She has done quite a few cosplays, and she is currently working on Black Widow, Poison Ivy and Black Cat. Be sure to head over to Facebook and like Marie’s page. You can also see her latest cosplays on her deviantART page.

      • Evenmagicman

        agreed

    • Mathew Doolan

      Very nice, Even like that its a Retro Lancer. I do believe that is the weapon of choice of Alex in the comic series. to many people make the regular Lancer and not stick to the details. Looking good girl, keep up the true spirit of Gears of War!

      Thats cool but she needs to look dirtier to fit the part but the costume is amazing.

      Oh, hey, if she was at Anime Matsuri, I may have seen her. But this cosplay is pretty awesome, Miss Marie. Keep the awesome up! :)

      The titles a little misleading … Maybe try: “Large breasted gamer used to entice fans to website.”

      I know, I know, it may not be quite as catchy, but it’s at least 47% more accurate.

        Man some of you, not naming names for whom I responded under and including a couple above him who are the same person, are so cynical and rude. Who cares how a person got a cosplay costume or if they made it or not. Any effort is more than most would do to show they appreciate they favorite games and show it. The game came first, then all the literary fiction. Its still about the game and the gaming community at large. Got a question for  you, do you even enjoy gaming?

        • Anonymous

           You seem to be having an arguement with me over points I haven’t made.

          Cynical: Yeah, totally. That’s me to a tee.
          Rude: How was what I said rude? Does a man using the word ‘breast’ come across as vulgar to you? If so, I wholeheartedly apologise.

          “Any effort is more than most would do to show they appreciate they
          favorite games and show it. The game came first, then all the literary
          fiction. Its still about the game and the gaming community at large.”

          That’s a good point, but what does that have to do with what I posted?

          Do I enjoy gaming? No, I hate video games. That’s why I have Epic Games added on Facebook, because I hate gaming so much that I love to read about the top games.

          You can add sarcastic to that list if you want.

    • Al3xxxandr

      Wow true gamer my ass how about getting a life and cosplaying as a character that’s not even in the game lmao 10k spent at GameStop wow I bet she’s lesbo too

      • http://twitter.com/LeeRobertsVA Lee Roberts

        Dude, what the heck? Some Gears fan you are. Gears is more than just the games, it’s the books. It’s the graphic novels. Just because you don’t want to read, doesn’t mean that it isn’t a character in the Gears of War universe. 

        Another thing: Just because she’s got the nads to dress up and take pictures of herself representing an IP character doesn’t mean she’s a lesbian. Look at you. You’re a gamer. Does that automatically make you a jobless, womanless, slob? I’d like to think not. So, if you don’t want your lot thrown in with all the steriotypes, try not to do the same.

        BTW, 10k spent at GameStop? I’d call that customer loyalty. Last I checked, that had nothing to do with a person’s sexuality.

        Thank you, and good day, sir.

      • guest

        I can assure u she’s not a lesbo, she likes cock almost as much as you do!

    • Al3xxxandr

      Why didn’t she just buy it out right jeez tool

    • Wist

      – they’re hiding far away from most gamer guys.

      • blah blah blah

          AHHH PZZZZ

      So Epic, mind telling me why Alex is still missing from GoW3?

      We had to get re-skinned characters but not her?

      WHY?!

      • Good one.

        Gonna need a new voice actor unless you want a reskinned anya…which would be a cop out.

        • Neph

          RAAM’s Shadow had plenty of new voices. They’ve recorded before. They could do it again.

      • Good one.

    • Anonymous

      and this… is exactly why we need her as a playable character in the game!!!! sure motivates me 2 play AAAAND use a golden retro
       

    • pwned

      id shoot her with my Lancer. if u know what i mean

    • Neph

      I hope this is a precursor to her finally coming into the game.  I was expecting her to come along with Barrick since they’re both from the Comic series, but no.

      Is it maybe a licensing issue? Cuz if so, that needs to get worked out and it needs to happen.

    • Dark Lifa

      Nice costume, I would like to test how good is the game hehehehe girl vs girl

      I Love Alex. I read all her comix and the book about her and I cannot understand why in the book Baird hates her and in the Comix in the end they are friends. She is my favorite Gear and I pray every day for putting her in a DLC for GoW 3 because I LOVE her , more than Sam. Cliffy B……………………..PLEASE :’(
