Costume Information

Update: The head will be ready for May Expo and will be the Revengeance version as I have plans for it as a prop. I'll also be wearing the head at some point over the weekend.

The repaint and main build will take place after May Expo with the intention of wearing the complete MGS4 version in October, but the full body won't be ready until then. :)

Thanks guys. ^_^

It's very much in the planning stages at the moment, need to really test a few things to get a feel for how the movement will work before I start the final build. I've got a few ideas, but... well, we'll see!

Tsuchinoko - I'm sad you won't be at Kita either. :( Maybe I'll bring RAY to Expo if it's ready in time. ^_^

Is it just you and me that think the head is super cute? C'mon people, if you think that triangular face looks really sweet, say so in the comments!

I can tell you it's not getting any less adorable! Maybe it'll look a bit more fierce when I've got everything painted! :D

Head, part 1 (Posted 21st April 2014)

Based on my plans for RAY's head, I began progress over the four day weekend, and have constructed (roughly) the component parts. They all fit together, and it's a good fit for my head too. As stated on the information page, for specific reasons I'm making the Revengeance version of the head ONLY for May Expo, followed by the complete MGS4 (there's a slight possibility that will change to MGS2 but we'll see) build in time for the Autumn conventions. This build will include LEDs for detailing, particularly as it's the 'open mouth' version. Picture includes all component parts of the head separately. I have yet to do external detailing for the 'mouth' parts, and there are still some details I need to add before it's all sealed and painted.
