MOVED TO: Finally caving in and posting a couple photos of my updated Plaster Splicer cosplay. Even though they are a little bit grainy, I still like the photo. Wore this at DragonCon and it was very well received!
Only thing that is really updated is the mask and the hooks (and more globbed on gesso and paint!)
Story was, I didn't really intend to make this costume until I came across an old-school world globe I found in the garbage of a school. And from then on, the ideas kept flowing...
It does have breathing holes, various punctures / "bullet holes" punctured into the helmet, which are moreorless visible to the eye. XD
Helmet: World globe used as a base, spray painted the base, painted over it using acrylic paints and various markers, and then painted PVA/Wood glue over it to protect the surface (WITH FISHIES) Lense: Lid of a round lunch container glued onto the helmet (using silicone), painted over it with acrylics and markers, bike light glued onto the back of the lense (lights up), with bolts glued onto the rims Lenses: Bigger lense on top of the helmet is made from some "beer" goggles with a flashing light in the centre, the smaller lenses are hose connectors painted over and glued on (one of them has a goggle lense glued onto it and painted over with nail polish)
Time it took to complete: Uhhhh...5-7 months...? Would've been less time if I had all the pieces I needed all at once. XD

Omg one huge excuse for color and background practice. ACTUALLY This one has been floating around since... I dunno ever. Maybe May? CAN'T REMEMBER. I should of been working on trades I KNOW BUT I kept looking at it and it was just sitting there gathering dust.. :I
Started out as a doodle... then it went to color.. then yeah... Actually I think this is the longest time I spent on a picture, I'm guessing at least 4 or 5 hours. Maybe more.
SO WORTH IT.
