So you’ve just built yourself a full Cosplay armour set – CONGRATULATIONS! Now, where on earth are you going to put it?
So for this build I used the following:
A kitchen work top off cut (Two pieces screwed together)
x1 3 meter metal trunking pole (Cut equally in half)
x1 coat hanger
For this to work I figured that the poles would need to bend to fit better. But as I don’t have any way of easily doing that, I opted to simply drill the holes off centre. So that the poles would plug into the base and lean forward.
A word of caution – When living in a small 1 bed flat, you will run out of room very quickly. You TV will never bee seen again. You will scare the daylights out of yourself and guests that you fail to warn.
A little over 2 and a half years ago I had an idea to build my own Space Marine cosplay outfit. The catalyst? A video on YouTube of a Blood Angle space Marine. And on and off over the years I’ve finally got around to finishing my build enough for me to be happy to let it be seen in public. So Saturday 9th September 2017 Gloucester Comic-Con and my Space Wolf went out into the world. Totally worth it. Such a great giggle. And lessons learned. Cooling. Oh good grief! It was like my own personal mobile sauna. But what did I expect? It’s 100mm foam. And maybe skiing gloves, not the best choice as it turns out. On the bright side, winter conventions will be a doddle.
