Ok, so last sunday I saw someone as Soundwave on the transformers convention here in the Netherlands. I thought SWEET! I'm going to do that too! Mainly.. because I didnt want to go alone in cosplay, now, knowing there are others, I'm going to start working on my costume in a few weeks. Better too early then too late. My choice was Thundercracker, because I'm a huge fan of the seeker. (only 1 figure away from owning all of his) Now I'm hoping you guys can advice me what would be better to use; Isolation foam plates + something to smoothen it Cardboard + plush foam and fabric Jack Doud's Soundwave Costume Construction this is a VERY good guide to use, but I'm iffy about the fiberglass part, since I have no idea how I'd get my hands on that. SURPRISEEEEEEEEE by *SeishinKibou on deviantART and this is a very good example of the board and plush type costume. My main concern is annoying little brats, as I saw that poor Soundwave's gun was ruined by one on the convention. I'd hate to have my wings or armcannons broken by a kid. Attached drawing is a simplyfied seeker drawing by a friend, since planning is just as important as the build itself?
