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?|
Ah dude totally!
Are you going to be wearing him to any conventions around the New England area, by any chance? We could meet up and do a photoshoot!
I know all of you that have been reblogging my Otachi sculpture really like it! And therefore I have a proposition for you!
Alongside my artwork, I make cosplays and wear them to conventions all around New England.
My next big cosplay plan coming up is a fully functioning Otachi costume! Complete with moving head and jaw, opening wings, and bio luminescent spots, tongue (that also moves), and eyes.
I’ve been adding up the costs of the supplies it will take to create her; and she’s not going to be cheap. To create Otachi the way that I want to shes going to cost me at LEAST $1000.
She’s going to be my most complex and expensive cosplay to date. I plan to debut her at Connecticon 2014 in a Pacific Rim panel hosted by Dr. Newton Geiszler and Dr. Hermann Gottlieb
SO what does this have to do with you, oh lovely members of the Pacific Rim fandom?
Because I am entering that point in my life where I need to pay for rent and gas money on top of my cosplay and art supplies, I’m going to need as much help as I can to be able to afford this cosplay.
THEREFORE, I have created an indiegogo page for my costume. There are many prizes to be had for donating INCLUDING your very own bronze Otachi figurine!
So whatd’ya say? Help a fellow Kaiju-groupie out and bring Otachi to life!
The official blog of the New England based cosplay studio, Das Cosplay.
Hey guys, my cosplay family now has a Tumblr up and running!
You should follow us because we’re going to be posting a lot of fun things and the other members are awesome cosplayers
I’ve been doing a lot of renovations to this blog, making into something a little closer to an actual professional website than a blog.
Take a look through the directory at all the pages I’ve added, including:
I also put up an updated “about” page that has links to my art and photography blogs, as well as information on my cosplay family (who are all amazing cosplayers)
The site will continue to grow as I put up more things and pages, so make sure to keep an eye on it!
I’ve put up my first cosplay how-to tutorial!
This one is on how to make your own Celty helmet from scratch.
Keep an eye out on my Goodies page for future tutorials, useful sites, and fun things!
Erwin Smith - Attack on Titan
Worn: Another Anime Convention 2013
I had seen Erwin on my dash for a long time before I actually got into the series. And my fiancee was already cosplaying as Levi, and had influenced me into the eruri ship; so I decided that if I was going to cosplay from the show, I would cosplay as Erwin
The neck-piece was created by me using a faux-turquoise bead, a deconstructed ornament medallion for the metal fitting, leather for the back loop, and shoelace for the cord itself (I wanted to use paracord but sadly where I currently live 9 months out of the year has only a Walmart to get cosplay supplies from).
The boots, pants, and shirt were store bought, and the jacket was created by Alex. The patches on the jacket are painted with screen printing ink and sewn on as well.

Furry Friend - OFF
Taken: CTcon 2013
My friends thought it would be funny if Bad!Batter went to the CTcon fursuit parade, since he’s basically made using the same methods. We missed the parade, sadly, but a fursuiter showed up to the OFF shoot. So, naturally, I took the opportunity to get a shot with them. They were very nice, but I can only imagine how hot it would be in there (I was hot in Bad!Batter and he’s just a head and hands!)
The picture actually came out really nice, too. So up here it goes!

What Do You See? - OFF
Taken: CTcon 2013
One of my friends was taking pictures with my camera and got this one of my Zacharie reflected in Bad!Batter’s eye. I really love it, so it’s going up on here.
