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.
