Wow man... It's really, reeeeeeally amazing! I have only two questions: How much time took to finish the complete suit? and and the EVA foam is that thick or it's bent doing the edge form? (I mean, are the pieces hollow?)
I'm totally your fan!

Thank you! The entire suit took about 10 weeks from start to finish. EVA Foam comes in many different thicknesses, and the suit is comprised of about all of them in different spots =D

Wow, fantastic job! There are some cosplays that give off really strong vibes and leave you with a lasting memory, and I can say you did just that with this. You managed to nail just about every aspect of him.
Looks like Raiden walked right out of the game. 8D

I'm working on a genderbent version of him right now, so looking at your outfit has been really great help and inspiration~

What materials did you use to make the mask?
Xailas7 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
The jaw is hand sculpted with oil-based plastilina modeling clay, then cast in resin. The armor parts are detailed EVA foam.

The hair looks fabulous, besides the rest of it! Doesn't look like a wig, so did you dye your hair?
Xailas7 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013
It is indeed a wig! However, I am a hairstylist by trade, so I know a few tricks to getting it looking more authentic ;) ..Perks of the job eh?
