It’s Friday, which means that Oculus founder Palmer Luckey is at a VR event connected to the Japanese Machi Asobi anime convention in Tokushima, hanging out, taking pictures. It’s one of Luckey’s first public appearances since Oculus’s parent company Facebook quietly put him in the dunce corner because he was bankrolling a pro-Trump shitposting meme group during the 2016 election.
Luckey chose his big moment carefully, we can assume: the Verge notes that he’s got a new goatee, and he’s happily interacting with fans and other Anime-lovers at the convention. Oh, also, he’s dressed as the bikini-clad female character “Quiet” from Metal Gear Solid V. So uh, here’s pictures of that, if you want.
Luckey also tried on a 4K VR headset.
When pictures of his cosplay started going viral, he joined in on the fun.
Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series, even dropped lucky Luckey a retweet.
To be fair to the guy, it’s a pretty good cosplay. Luckey’s estimated to be worth about $700 million, so paying for good quality, uh, bikinis and utility belts is probably something he can do.
It’s not the first time he’s cosplayed, either. A troll-funding tech magnate’s gotta have hobbies, you know?
Inverse hopes everyone enjoys the weekend as much as Luckey is! TGIF.
