Combat Cross from Castlevania I threw together in 2 days for a friend. Made entirely from scrap parts and leftover paint I had lying around.

>>8715409
Abel Nightroad crusnik wings. Realized I fucked up the proportions after looking at a better (non-cropped) reference image, first try on the right and somewhat amended one on the left. Still hate them.

One of the posters is op, it's typical to start a wip thread with an actual pic that says 'wip' instead of your own project.

They then posted their own project below, it's obvious

Why can't I make anything this good looking to two days. One day, one day.

Garbage gauntlet
Glove is kinda big and I feel like it looks silly
Not thrilled on the paint job I've done either
But I don't want to start over on it
Haven't compared its size to the rest of the stuff I've made to go with it

Wow you guys are so good. This is my first attempt at making a cosplay helmet. I kinda messed up but its coming along.

Does anyone know how I would hindge the jaw portion. Might try a screw and nut but that seems less that desirable.
>>
>>8717281
Post your tiger pelt :3
>>
>>8716189

I like your second try, they definitely look like what they're supposed to look like. My only thought is that they're perhaps too small, but I totally understand that you want to be able to go through doors.

Which version are you doing? Anime, manga, or artbook/novels?
>>
>>8717863

A chicago screw on each side would hinge it nicely. You could put a chin strap in the jaw portion so it moves when you speak?

Don't worry, they're plenty big and doorway-obstructing. Each side is 48" from end to end; the gray part of the wing armature is the dimensions of my arm from shoulder to wrist, if that helps you envision the proportions.
I'm going with Thores' paintings as reference because I am enamored of all the weird textures. Doing this outfit, but scaling the wings up because they look silly and un-flightworthy in the illustration.

>>8717863
Not bad for a first attempt. Everyone starts somewhere, anon

I'm so glad to be done with this thing. Now just to wait for my lantern to arrive.
>>
>>8718592
Just looked up the character, I hope the game makes its funding goals. Have you considered adding more padding to the tiger pelt? The sprite animation makes the arms look pretty rounded, I think it'd look more substantial with a layer of batting or two in there.
>>
>>8718613
Me too! I really enjoyed the prototype so I threw 175 at it to get the cute Roti plush.
Yeah after looking at the animation and reference images I think I will add it, I just worry though that it could potentially make it too heavy or difficult to move around in.

Thanks for the input I think I will run to the hardware store and pickup some of those screws.

Does anyone know where I can find a visor like material? Some videos suggested a black tinted soda bottle but those look like crap

Right now I just wear a pair of glasses under neath.

>>8716349
Looks a hell of alot better than anything I could make. Is that all EVA?
>>
>>8718791
buy thin plastic sheeting from home depot and dye it with RIT dye and boiling water. There are about 500 tutorials on youtube and it looks rly good for rly cheap
>>
>>8718793
Yes, all except the leather glove under the EVA
>>
>>8716349

Shrug, paint job is okay. You're aware of the mistakes so you can do a better job next time.

>>
>>8724580
Use a dremel to refine edges and be careful with all that glue, it might show up in the final product if you're not planning on covering the Eva with anything

Now that con season is done for me for the next few months I am going back to focus on finishing Wing Zero. I worked on the shoulder rigging setup tonight. I like the look and feel of it so far though one shoulder needs to be a bit tighter and the helmet needs to sit a few millimeters higher.
>>
>>8715566
Pretty good, the weathering could use some work though.

Dunno why everyone's sucking your dick over this, but the Wing Zero shit is impressive as all hell

>>8716349
Why not just use a spraycan?

>>8718592
That's... really cool
Props.

I will be the first to admit its inaccurate as hell but I was just glad to be able to produce something my friend liked in the super-short time frame without having to spend a dime. With more time I am sure I could do a better one, but I likely never will as I am not exactly a Castlevania fan.

Ill have more Wing Zero progress tomarrow. Ive spent most of the past few days painting

I wanted it to have the same effect as the painting I did on this
But it just didn't come out the same because I'm bad at consistency
>>
>>8729966
You are going way overboard on the weathering effects.
>>
>>8729966
It doesn't look like you're weathering, it looks like you're scraping it up with steel wool and stopping halfway. The silver needs to be more even.

pls tone it down a little

Frame is 3/4 done, just need to do the lower bit with the tracks. Then it'll be panels + painting!

SOON.
I curious to see how this handles at the venue you debut it at. I want to try something similar for a GuP costume. Any chance you could do up a video of it moving around when the shell is complete like you did before? Super interested in this project.
>>
>>8725166
Could you tell me what the armor is called please? Its really pretty
>>
>>8732608
Sure! It's the Storge S or Philia armor. フィリア if you want to read the Japanese blogs. I've got it half completed. Just have to make the wings, chest, and back now. I have them all patterned on paper though! Also have to figure out how to make the wings removable...that's going to be scary. It's been a bit challenging so far, but I'll start showing finished pieces here soon. Going to start painting on Wednesday!
>>
>>8732554
I'm gonna be doing that Panzer IV after this one. And I hope to find out too, shit it damn big (80cm wide), I'm glad the wheelchair driving it handles really well. I'll be sure to do a webm for you before the panels are on!

Posting sleeve paintjob progress.
After making three diferent pairs of sleeves i finally was able to make and paint a stencil that worked and looked decent.

(I honestly don't care if the paint job looks like shit I'm not making another set or any more stencils. it's not worth the tedium)

Earlier this year I did my first "armor" cosplay of Raiden from mgr. First time using EVA foam and my second cosplay ( it was a dumb choice in retrospect due to the time it took ). I didn't know where to get foam at the time so I got a bunch of shitty sheets from a crafts store which were way too thin. I finished the whole thing though so at least I learned something out of it.

There's a con in three weeks and I'm thinking about assembling it into a suit and finishing up the red lighting I had on it. Should I? Or is it just trash really? Shitty quality pic related, pic of part of it assembled on me from when I was still working on it.

Use a leather dressing. It should soften the adhesive without damaging the material.
I'd start with neatsfoot.

DBZ Scouters. Heat-formed acrylic visors, vacuum formed bodies.

I'm actually starting these over completely so they'll be easier to reproduce and be a little more seamless.

Please do! You should post it on twitter and tag the official account when you make it. They love all the fanart people are making of it and there are hardly any cosplays.

I hope I get to see your Anja cosplay either on social media or on here!

Also cosplay is almost done, I'm hoping to get pictures taken of it soon when I have the makeup/fake nails/contacts on.

Oh my. Not sure how you'd make Seravee's fat legs work, but good luck.

I'd personally go for Quanta or Zabanya.
