An abandoned air base outside of Leningrad, Russia played host to more than 300 Russian Fallout fans last month. The live-action role players recreated post-apocalyptic world of the 1998 Black Isle video game Fallout 2, complete with Brotherhood of Steel Knights, ghouls and even an issue of Cat’s Paw Magazine.
The time and effort these fans put into creating their costumes and props is absolutely astonishing. I have often derided LARPing in the past — and for good reason — but since I’m a huge fan of the Fallout series I can safely say that this looks like fun.
The site is in Russian, but you can check out some more amazing pictures here.
