GaoGaiGar Cosplay - 3 - GOLDION HAMMER! by UbersCosplay GaoGaiGar Cosplay - 3 - GOLDION HAMMER! by UbersCosplay
My completed GaoGaiGar cosplay. The Goldion Hammer is made from foamboard and 1mm cardboard.

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The majority of this costume is based on a heavily modified 3D model originally made by GoldenGlue

I had to design it that way so I would have enough arm mobility to wield the hammer. In more static poses they look better.

i was being legit when i said "White trash wont notice"

most people probably dont even know who 3G is. I tell everyone about it at every possible chance, but 3G final is a dissapointment, so i dont exactly tell them about THAT. . . .

but im sure most people are going to look at this and say..
"Lol fgt, Power Ranger has colored limbs. "

It's not accurate without a Goldymarg oven mitt to hold the pure awesome. Of course, he's already had to cut some corners to even use his arms, so I have no idea how he would... scratch that, I just doubt he had time to do so. Give this guy enough time, he'll probably make it work better than you thought possible.

I'm amazed someone's actually made a GaoGaiGar costume and the hammer.

Do you have any plans to do the Marg hand?
Reply
:iconuberscosplay:
UbersCosplay Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
I would eventually like to do a Marg Hand yes. I need to build up my skills a bit more first though since I want it to be scaled correctly and I would like it to work like an oversized wire controlled puppet hand. At the moment though I am thinking I will work on a new costume first.

WHAT.

My word, your work is incredible! I honestly thought this was a small scale action figure. That hammer-! That thing must weigh a ton!

I'm honestly at a lost for words. This is beyond mind boggling! WHY DO YOU HAVE SO MUCH TALENT?

Haha Thanks alot ^^ Yeah the hammer can be pretty unwieldy. When I get into a hobby I go full steam ahead. Its hard for me to believe sometimes that I just finally got into this stuff 3 years ago and that its only my second costume.
