I hit him up the other day after he went live with his project to get the scoop, and unfortunately for me he’s a busy guy. But since he was a Spikey Bits alum before, he was more than happy to give us permission to share this amazing project with you all!
Daniel is a very nice guy and seems to really just love cosplay. His large physical statute also helps to make him a great “test subject” for his armored creations as well.
Apparently his work here just got picked up by two different TV programs as well, so look for this amazing suit on the small screen shortly as well!
Here is a comparison pic to the Lexicanium, cataloging a similar suit of armor.
“Here you can compare the artwork with the costume.
Whilst not the specific design and heraldry we aimed for, the basic proportions give you an idea about what we aimed for.
As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve had to take a few shortcuts here and there, because we’re not genetically engineered super-soldiers 😉 We’ve done what we can to uphold the illusion.”
The armor itself requires the help of a few chapter serfs to assemble (see pictures below), but once on the fun begins!
Checkout the Cosplay Guide Article Daniel wrote for us a while back about just how to go about it!
