Thank you all for the great comments!
I made this costume from scratch based on the Mass Effect 2 character Garrus before he takes the rocket to his face. I will have more pictures posted on my website mywickedarmor.com in the near future. And yes, I plan to make more of these. Contact me through my website (not YouTube) if you are interested.
This Garrus project was a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. The costume has at least 75 LED's on/in it! But the lighting is one of the things that attracted me to this costume. I especially enjoyed the eye gear. Photos and videos just do not capture how neat the eye piece looks. I think the whole costume requires nine 9V batteries if you want the lights to work for a few hours. Fortunately, the armor is very lightweight, including the massive chest piece which I designed to split into two pieces for shipping and transport. And I am aware that Garrus does not have a tail- I just forgot to attach the butt plate strap before the video.
A few people have asked how long it took to make. That's hard to say since I worked on it in spurts. I am a quick sculptor, but there was a lot of time involved in moldmaking, paint, and assembly. The work was done over the span of a few months.
Some people have asked about the comfort of the feet. I would imagine it's just like walking around in high heels, but it's not quite as steep as it looks. There is some illusion involved. I slip my feet with shoes on them into the spandex socks and strap them to the support structure on the inside. It is fairly comfortable if you are standing still, but I would not want to walk a parade route in these feet. Props to all the ladies who wear high heels.
And to those who want to make ridiculous comments like:
"virgin. you'll never score."
I suspect only frustrated virgins make such comments. I have a baby boy, and my wife is amazingly hot and beautiful. So it's time to dash your useless stereotypes.
"you have too much time on your hands."
I am an artist, and I make time to create. I wonder if people ever turned to Michelangelo after looking on his sculptures and remarked that he has too much time on his hands. Maybe you have too much time if you sit around commenting on videos. Maybe you should create something! All creators have my respect. How bland would Nature be if only the birds with the best voices sang?
And to answer more comments:
"your shop is a mess!"
Haha, yep. Creation and order in one area creates entropy and disorder elsewhere. I really just made the video to show the costume, not my backyard art studio. And it's too hot in FL to shoot in a neat location these days. I'm sure I'll make a better video someday.
Thanks again for all the kind comments!
