Strider Hiryu (Strider 2) - Strider 2/ Marvel vs Capcom


AmeCon 2007




This is maybe my best cosplay, though not many people knew who it was.

Originally, they were bandages around the waist but they really pissed me off. They kept coming apart or undone and they were a bitch to get on or take off.
When I rewore the outfit at the October Expo I replaced them with a sheet of red cotton, much better though a little less authentic. This also allowed me to stitch velcro, on rather than relying on sticky back stuff to hold the belt on.

Also updated for the rewear I coated the papier mache harness with pleather, inserted an aluminium strip into Cypher [it was a bit flimsy before].
