Real S.T.A.L.K.E.R. cosplay in Chernobyl

The outward limits on fandom tightly border total insanity. A squadron of Russian gamers, clad in gas masks, army fatigues and melted mutant rubber masks, bribed Russian officials to take them deep into the mutagenic wasteland of Chernbobyl's Zone of Alienation and cosplay a real-life version of the sci-fi PC game S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. About the only thing they didn't do to attain 100% verisimilitude is hire out some of the children from Chernobyl's depressingly real mutant orphanages to shoot with their paint guns. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

    Sure, let’s open a theme park there too while we’re at it.
    “It’s a small world after all” was ALWAYS ripe for parody.

    This is weird on several levels. I wonder who you’d have to bribe here in the US to get to play around in some toxic waste dump. How much did they pay? I guess Russia doesn’t have liability laws and aren’t afraid of being sued when these guys grow a third eye.
