Ace Attorney fans will hopefully remember the heartwarming story of how prosecutor Miles Edgeworth, defense attorney Phoenix Wright, and the lovable idiot Larry Butz became friends. It started with a simple crime in a classroom that Wright was blamed for and that Edgeworth acted as his little baby defense attorney; it ended up with the two former lawyers and Larry Butz becoming a misogynist nuisance.
The “class trial,” as it came to be known, was retold on the series as a pivotal moment for Edgeworth and Wright and told through blurry, sunny vignettes. It is these vignettes that were faithfully reproduced by three cosplayers a few years ago.
In the photos taken by Peegion Photography, Phoenix Wright is played by Mangalover93, Larry Butz is played by Fluffyduckyp, and Miles Edgeworth is played by Cephal_Xin. All three went to great lengths to create the outfits with the appropriate effort for their characters: “Miles sewed the entire costume from scratch for accuracy, Phoenix drew and printed the t-shirt design, and as Larry I opened my closet and took out an undershirt and shorts, “says Fluffyduckyp on Reddit.
Despite their youthful looks, all three cosplayers were actually all in their mid-twenties when the photos were taken. “Our average height is 4’11,” says fluffyduckyp. “In real life, I still automatically get student discounts based on how I dress.”
In all fairness, considering Ace Attorney thinks anyone over 30 is old, it doesn’t surprise us that kids in high school aren’t the ages you expect either.
