Proving that not all hardcore gamers are creepy, poopsocking fanatics, mainstream men's mag Playboy has come up with it's own gamer cosplay contest. Based on SEGA's sweet new third person 3D action game Bayonetta, cosplay competitors battle to see who plays the best pistol-packing magic user.

Implications - For a subculture often shunned as "uncool" and (begrudgingly) "celibate," this Playboy contest adds some sexual legitimacy to their cause by dressing models like Bayonetta, the video game action star with physical make-up of Sarah Palin. Who could deny the sex appeal in that?
