Finally complete after nearly 9 months of work! This is by far my biggest, heavyiest and most complex costume yet. It stands almost 8 feet tall and has built in sound, music and motorized effects for the 3-barreled cannon arm.
The majority of this suit is made from 1mm 'Sintra' PVC sheets with some rubber coated EVA foam used to make the thighs and biceps.
When I first played Super Robot Wars OG for the Game Boy Advance I fell in love with the Alt-Eisens design. Its my all time favorite mecha design. This is the mech that made me want to try and get into cosplay, all my other builds were just to build up the skill to try my hand at making Alt-Eisen. Im so happy to finally see it come together after 10 years of dreaming about it.
Special thanks as always to my love
for helping me get around in this giant suit and policing the crowds it tends to form
Debuted at Supercon 2014 in Miami. I WON BEST IN SHOW!!! THANK YOU SUPERCON STAFF, JUDGES AND ALL ATTENDEES!!!
