    Aright folks, I've posted photos of this here and there on the site, but since a thread popped up and we were given the okay to post it I figured i'd post photos of it here:


    This is my Gurren Lagann costume rig being made for the cons Ikkicon, Anime Matsuri, and A-kon here in texas

    it is made out of Funfoam, tons of hot glue and modgepodge and spray paint.

    it is currently roughy 60% done i'd say (the arms are on their way to being fully built but no photos yet)

    A good friend of mine, NatsumeRyu off seibertron and transcostumers, is helping me build this, she also designed the 3d model that is being used to make this (the final picture is what the costume should roughly look like when done)

    Shout out to MiraiBaby and Velocity and NatsumeRyu, the ones who inspired this costume to become a reality

    EDIT: 4 NEW PHOTOS HAVE BEEN POSTED!

    for drills you could probably use lightweight foam aand cardboard. That would allow for suitable lage size but still able to be handled
