|Awards :||Amecon 2012 cosplay contest award winner for 'Attention to Detail'|
|Time Taken :||4 weeks|
|I made this costume because it is an icon character of the game, namely because it features on the main cover and most of the promo advertising. I love it because it has clothed and armoured elements as well as lots of texture detailing such as weathering, rust and battle damage. |
The hardest part of costume to make was the mask, lots of angles to get right swell as trying to fit it to my face and akin sure I was able to breath properly and see adequately.
The easiest thing to make was the body armour. The foam was easy to cut and shape plus was easily able to mold it to my body in a way that made sure it didn't rub or constrict movement. Didn't have any issues with it the whole weekend I wore it.
I learnt a lot from doing this, namely the fact I will start building high quality props for cosplayers, but I remembered just how much I missed the process of building things.
It was a fantastic experience when I wore it, although a hot one. It was a hot and humid few days so I was boiling inside it but a lot of people seemed to like it since I kept getting stopped for photos so I think it did the trick. But thank you to all who said they enjoyed it. You guys are awesome :)
