Thank you for posting unfilitered pictures. I love seeing a cosplay how it actually is, and yours is simply amazing. I like the drybrush effect you used to make the "metal" looks scratched. Top notch work.
AMAZING COSPLAY!!! What did you attach the armor pieces to? Like did you wear a lycra body suit underneath and attach every piece of the armor to it? Also I see you used pleather for the abs and the obleque sides how did you exactly do that? Any quick tips? Intend to cosplay Raiden as well and yours a is a big inspiration. Help a fellow cosplayer out
Thank you very much! Each piece of the suit is separate. I wear a compression suit underneath and put the armor on like you would a real suit of armor. It is not connected to the undersuit. Yes I used pleather for the abdominal section, with a hand detailed ab "plate" glued to the inside of it, catching the details. The ab plate is made of EVA foam, which is detailed with a rotary tool and glues easily to the inside of the pleather. The sides, (also connected to the ab plate) were detailed and painted, and the pleather was cut open in those areas to expose them. Hope this helps!
Thanks a lot this does really help!!! Just one more thing and I apologize for being a bother are the sides that are connected to the ab "plate" are they ONLY pleather or are they foam glued to the inside of the pleather as well or are they strictly pleather painted and with side ab detail?
