Rathian Gunner - Monster Hunter


Kitacon 2014


My partner is a huge Monster Hunter fan, and talked me into playing MH3. I love some of the armours, and decided on this one (for starters) to go with his Rathalos Blademaster.

I can't even imagine how hard it is to make all that armor! Really great work! :D

So I realised I've neglected updates on this costume... Here goes... All the armour is obviously foam, with funky foam for the scales (all hand formed... not as bad as the 400-ish scales I've made SO FAR far my partner's Rathalos armour). All primed and ready to paint. The undersuit I just bought (waiting on the leggings though) and probably won't modify much unless I have time. The hat was made from scraps of the trousers from a pattern I drafted. The trousers are quilted (by me as I couldn't find pre-quilted stuff) to give the appearance of scales. The belts are cheap belts that I chopped up with small painted perfume bottles as the ammo casings. Just the collar/tie, armguard and bowgun left to do now (and the painting, obviously)

Slow beginnings

This is quite a large cosplay, so I'm hoping I can get it done in time for Kita 2014. Anyways, I found a lovely green fabric, and started by cutting out the side-skirt, which is meant to be a wing, and painting the 'eyes' on it. I've also started quilting the leg pieces out of the same fabric.
