GaoGaiGar Cosplay - 1 by UbersCosplay GaoGaiGar Cosplay - 1 by UbersCosplay
My completed GaoGaiGar cosplay.

This took about 9 months to complete. Its made from EVA foam, Sintra and Foamcore board. It has dual speakers in the chest that I can control to play various sound clips and effect from the show as well as lighting in the lions eyes, the crest in the head and the G-Stone on the forehead.

I was very honored to win Florida Anime Experiences "Best in Show" award with this costume. My reward was a trip to LA and a chance to compete at Anime Expo where I won the "Best Intermediate Craftsmanship" award.

The majority of this costume is based on a heavily modified 3D model originally made by GoldenGlue

Why would anyone even bother competing against you in a cosplay contest? If I was in a contest and saw this as one of the contestants, I would just leave.

Amazing! I actually thought this was a model or high end action figure. Excellent work.

If it didn't say 'cosplay' in the title I would've sworn this was a picture of a GaoGaiGar figure! Holy moley this is a crazy awesome cosplay!
Though, I do have one question: How do you function in this costume??
Reply
:iconuberscosplay:
UbersCosplay Featured By Owner May 30, 2013
Thank you :) I'm glad that it looks close enough to be mistaken for a toy :) The costume does limit my mobility but I can still get around pretty well. Doors, stairs and heat can still make it pretty hard sometimes though.

I'm glad you think proportions are good as that was a complaint with my last costume. I tried very hard to make this one more accurate. Thank you very much ^^

It's amazing, a skype friend of mine showed me this and I thought it was a model kit at first in front of some potted plants. The detail is just so damn well done, you totally deserve that best in show award.
