Bayonetta was one of those hugely Internet-hyped games that eventually saw the light of day in Japan on October 2009. The game is a third person action game, very much in the vein of Devil May Cry (which makes sense since it is directed by Hideki Kamiya who directed both the Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe game series), and focuses on the attractive titular character Bayonetta, a witch who finds herself thrust into battle against both angelic and warrior-like foes but without any recollection as to why she is fighting. She possesses the ability to shapeshift and thus use a variety of weapons, both ranged and short distance-based, as well as make use of a number of magical attacks (that makes use of her hair of all things) in order to dispatch her enemies.
Of course, seeing as Bayonetta became one of the biggest talking points in the game world come 2009, particularly because of her uber sexy looks, a horde of cosplayers tried their hands at portraying this battle-weary witch since, and today’s cosplay sundae entry has been culled from the successful Comiket 77 gathering, featuring an unfortunately unidentified cosplayer who in my opinion manages to pull off the Bayonetta look pretty damn well.
