Costume Information

After the success of my Brienne cosplay, I wanted to have another go at making Chunky armour again and my other half wanted to do a Couple Cosplay again. So naturally, after watching Pacific Rim, we were so hype over the Russian Pilots - the look so boss :D
Should be a fun challenging cosplay as we'll be playing with LEDs too to get the helmets to light xD

Braces: In progress (Posted 18th January 2014)

Braces are coming along amazingly :D
Fixed together with hotglue, using about 3 layers of Plastazote and then webbing with buckles sewn in place to make getting them on and off easier. Neatening up and concealing the hot glue marks will come later as well as trimming the webbing :3
Modelled by my other half Rob who will be Aleksis
