Cosplay Caption This

Fmulder regularly finds amusing Diablo-related images and posts them as Caption This threads in our forums. He’s done 20 so far this year and while we should feature them on the main page more often… we often leave them for a forum treat. His newest Caption This thread I had to post though, since I spent a good minute laughing at how awesomely-bizarre an image it was.

Caption This #27: Furry Kitteh Amazon and Assassin

1

We haven’t run a Caption This in a while, and though I was saving this piece of CGI D2 fan art for a future all-furry fan art update, it’s just too good not to present on its own. The image features feline-style furry versions of the Amazon and Assassin, in armor (of a sort) as they await the arrival of an enemy.

Caption This #25: Secret Cosplay Level?

For this Blizzcon week, how about a Caption This from last year’s show? These three guys in their cow suits were a highlight of the event, and yes, it worked much better with three of them. Just one guy would have been odd, though “Cow King?” jokes would at least have resulted. It’s a pity there weren’t like, 15 of them. That would have been truly awesome, as they could have swarmed around any other Diablo cosplayer they saw, and left behind only bones.

Caption This #24: The Diablo I Rogue

Our last Caption This featured the Diablo I Warrior, and it generated the most captions we’ve ever had in a non-contest Caption This. This week we’re going to continue that wayback theme with concept art for a class that quite a few of us expect to see the Diablo III version of, in just a couple of weeks. The [d2W]Rogue[/d2W]!

Caption This #23: The Diablo I Warrior

We’re going old school with this week’s caption this; it’s the Diablo I Warrior sketched by Chris Metzen, back in his concept art days. Besides looking hecka cool, with the hourglass figure and like, the biggest hatchet ever, check out that shoulder pad. It’s nearly WoW-esque in its pauldronage!

Caption This #22.5: Cain’s Reaction Captioned

Monday’s Caption This featured a three-panel series of Cain cinematic concept art, as he reacted to the incoming meteor. Quite a few of the reader-suggested captions took the natural comic strip rhythm and included lines for each panel, and as I read over them I realized they really should be presented in the traditional LOLcat format, which I like to call DiabLOLs. So I hopped into Photoshop, pasted in the captions, uploaded them to the new D3 Humor gallery, and here they are.

Caption This #22: Cain’s Curious Reaction

It’s Monday, and with no other pressing news, how about a Caption This? This time the image comes from the Diablo III Cinematic preparation artwork. The full size image (linked) has notes about lighting changes and other technical stuff, which is why I’m presenting this version with the captions cropped off, so as not to distract you guys from creating really crude funny jokes about what Cain‘s thinking or doing or seeing to make such amusing expressions.

Caption This #21: Dangerous Land

Let’s start off the week as we sometimes do, with a fresh Caption This. What is this strange land, revealed back in 2008, in the gorgeous D3 debut Art Trailer. Like so much of the environmental concept art, we’ve never seen anything like it in the game. Is there a ton of concept art that’s never going to be actualized? Are there countless areas of Diablo 3 we know nothing about yet. Or both?

Caption This #19: Mysterious Thing

1

More Caption This fun this week, with an entrant from the mysterious depths of the Diablo 3 art reel. This image was on the art movie Blizzard released at the Diablo 3 debut back in June of 2008, and even two years later, we’ve still got no idea at all what/who it/he is. Undead monster? Creepy NPC? Other?  I’d make more suggestions, but that would cut into the potential caption material.

Caption This #18: Smirking Wizard

1

A week without a new D3 wallpaper means it’s a good time for a Caption This. We’re going with a subtle one, this time. What’s this Wizard thinking? The scene is from her intro movie, as the Skeleton King cackles merrily behind her, but don’t let that literalism weigh you down. Perhaps she’s contemplating the money she just saved on her car insurance?
