Costume Information

Cost : £300 approx.
Time Taken : 3.5 Years

After withstanding Oct. Expo with only some cosmetic paint damage, Optimus now only needs these sorted and a few minor mods (like smaller light cowlings :P) and he'll be ready again to kick some Decepticon butt! XD

To revamp Optimus for Auto Assembly this year I thought to add some more details. Planning to add some wheels on the legs and extra details on the legs and arms. Can't wait for it!!

Thanks for the comment on Bumblebee! :) I do still have it (it's one of my favourite costumes to wear) but I unfortunately don't have plans to go to any London expos this year, sorry :(

Your Optimus cosplay looks great, btw :D Love the photos!
