The Real Reinhardt Meets A Giant Reinhardt

The opening moments of this video star Darin De Paul, the voice actor behind Overwatch’s Reinhardt. Standing in front of a giant Reinhardt cosplay outfit, screaming Reinhardt quotes into a megaphone. It’s awesome.

The cosplay is by Thomas DePetrillo of Extreme Costumes, while the video was shot by Mineralblu at the New York Comic Con earlier this month. You should watch the whole thing, there’s some good cosplay on show!

Darin de Paul is like the sweetest man ever. I’ve never met a VA more passionate about what he does and the characters he creates. When I cosplayed Garrosh at BlizzCon ‘14, he came over to me with the most adorably excited, fanboyish glee ever. I had no idea who he was until he told me he did the voice of Blackhand in WoW, and then proceeded to talk as Blackhand. At that point, we’re both bouncing and totally geeking out over each other. He asked to take photos with me and hold Gorehowl. By far, one of my best “celeb” encounter ever.
