Information

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 :)

That attention to detail is just amazing! Just... wow!

This is just amazing. The attention to detail with all the nicks and the way you've done the weathering is just unbelievable. It looks like you've stepped out of the game, or the photos of you promo pictures of the game. I bow down to you.

The weathering and finish on this costume is... Just incredible! It's so close to the original I'd be scared to get near you for fear of radiation~!!

saw you at aya looks just incredable, great work.

Excellent. I had to look close to see which pics were reference pics and which your cosplay. In fact the only giveaway was the logo on the pics. Nuff said.

tripletriad posted on 18 September, 2011 - 17:49
So glad this got a showcase, hugely deserving!

Nanahra posted on 18 September, 2011 - 17:53
@Joshua Thank you very much but they aren't reference pics, they are all me, the ones with the logos are the ones I photos hoped to made it look like I was standing in a location sighing the game rather than the nice clean surroundings of Warwick university. bUt thank you so much :) @Felixize Hehehe, thanks very much but don't worry I'm safe, took looks of Rad-Away so all good :) And to everyone else who has commented thank you all every so much for your comments, makes it all worth it :)

Absolutely loved the detail and effort that went into this – all the finishing (painting, weathering, decals etc.) is fantastic.
