2016 has been an awesome and overwhelming year for me and since it is almost over within a few hours and we'll all be welcoming 2017, I think it's appropriate to post this blog of the costume / props and projects that I've made throughout the year. Please note that this is going to be a long read so, I still hope you could get to the bottom of it haha!
1. Knightmare Batman
2. Legolas' Elven Daggers and Captain America's Shield
A friend asked me to make Starlord's helmet (plus his accessories) for his cosplay. It's not 100% accurate but I'm happy with how it turned out to mention that I've built it for 3 hours only because, I'm also busy working on my own costume during that time.
4. Soldier 76's Helmet and Rifle
Not to brag, but probably the first ever best Soldier 76 mask there is. In fact, it even got a ton of views, likes, comments and shares that I've ever experienced in my whole costume and prop building life. It was also featured in The Replica Prop Forum and even got stolen by some Chinese dude from AliExpress.com (LOL)
5. Wasteland Assassin
Aside from making costumes and props, I'm also a freelance concept artist / character designer so, back in August, I've decided to cosplay one of my characters which was the Wasteland Assassin.
6. Ezra Miller: Flash Suit
Few weeks after the release of the official Justice League movie, one of my old cosplay friend asked me to make him a full Ezra Miller Flash suit from the upcoming Justice League movie. Probably not the best one out there, but definitely the first back then.
7. T60 Brotherhood of Steel: Power Armor
Been busy with costume and prop commissions and didn't had the chance to make something for myself for the past few years so, I've decided that I should make something BIG for myself this year and so I did. Hence, the T60 Power Armor was built. It won two large cosplay event in the country and got the right attention for it.
8. Reaper and Zenyatta
I've been a big nerd for hooded, dark type characters and ever since the first Overwatch trailer came out, I've been already eye-ing Reaper. I just didn't wanted to be a wagon rider who just cosplays a certain character without even knowing them or in this case, playing as Reaper. Recently, a friend helped me on getting the game and so I've finally decided to do a Reaper costume.
Prior to my Reaper costume, a friend also asked me to make him a full Zenyatta costume.
Decided to document the 1 week build and uploaded the whole playlist on my Youtube channel :D
Well, that sums up my 2016 Costume and Prop building experience!
It has been a wonderful and productive year indeed. I'm hoping I could get my hands on more awesome projects to come!
