Ben aka Maul Cosplay started his career as a film stuntman and has been a hobby cosplayer for 10 years before he became a professional cosplay promoter well known for his work as Geralt of Rivia for CD Projekt Red’s „The Witcher“, Soldier 76 for Blizzard Entertainment’s „Overwatch“ and also Snake for Konami’s „Metal Gear Solid“.
With his own company for costumes and stunt promotion, Defcon Unlimited, he produces his cosplays, props and photospots on a high quality level for video game promotion. Ben always focuses the most on the authentic looks of his characters and the smallest details. He also traveled to the exclusion zone of Chernobyl to find the right atmosphere and mood for his cosplay of „Joel“ from „The Last Of Us“ in 2017.
As one of the most talented stage combat fighters of Europe, Ben has also gained some attention through his performance of Darth Maul in the youtube fan film „Darth Maul Apprentice“.
Quite contrary to the badass attitude of his chosen characters, it is the most important thing for Ben to be within the crowd on conventions, talk to fans and followers and spend as much time as possible with everyone around.
