After watching Days of Future Past, the fiancee and i decided it would be fun to cosplay as the professor and his angry companion from First Class. The uniforms were hand sewn from scratch, with custom-details such as the buckles and side details being made from modified shower-curtain rings and EVA foam. The helmet was created using EVA-grade floor mats and contact adhesive, and then coated with plasti-dip and gunmetal metallic spray paint. the “lining” of the helmet was made from thin EVA foam, coated, and hand painted with silver acrylic.
For anyone that hasn’t seen this yet. I’ve created an update page that will be following my progress on Otachi. Once I’m done with her it will stay up as a sort of “how-to” for creating a kaiju costume using my methods.
It has some fun links as well, and there will probably be more as I find new things!
yoooo dude your otachi blueprints look absolutley amazing! I'm actually in the process of making a leatherback costume right now!! I thought I was the only person to ever make a costume of an official kaiju! maybe we could help each other out at some point or somethin?
