: PLEASE READ : I did have to scap these lenses for foam becaus thay did not keep to the shape of my head on the actual mask I was useing I do not recomend that you try unless you plan on reinforcing the rubber to your heads shape, for a look at the actual mask. [link]
1. Frames made from a rubber stamp-carving sheet and the plastic lense made from plastic from like a toy's clamshell box.
2. a paper spacer, kinda like a washer to a bolt or nut. mostly to help keep both mesh sheats together
3. The White Mesh, to give my masks eyes the clasic white look along with a slight buggy feel
4. Another plastic lens with 20% car window tint/film the dark will help contrast the white mesh and keep any one from seeing me though the eyes of the mask... also act as sun glasses lol
5. Last a Foam frame to keep the frame comfortable and away from my eye insted of my eye being pushed up against the plastic tinted lens, witch would likely smudge the lens and over all hinder my site and comfort in the mask.
I had to Test how the mask would take to the gluing prosess and how well it would hold with elmers since super glue will oddly staine the plastic with a white film that is realy hard to clean off with out scratching the crap out of the plastic and thats not realy something you want I only had one rubber frame left... it was a mistake lol I cut two Right frames lol so I ended up makeing a battle scarred mask wich looks awesome on my zombie head sckull
Woohoo! I finally put up a picture of our Chrono Trigger group! It was actually taken on stage after our performance, which we did at Wai-Con in January 2012, in which our group won Best Skit! Hooray!
The Robo costume was actually started earlier in January, after initially joking that I would fill in the gap in their group by making a GIANT ROBOT. And... it actually worked out pretty well! It took a while to get this done though, and I ended up working pretty hard and stressing out, but so much thanks to the group for helping me do little things here and there. Specific thanks too to Lisa for drafting the legs, torso and speaker when I was too dead from stress to work my head around the shapes, and for also weathering the paint when I was at work and didn't have time to come over.
Robo is made out of a micture of craft foam (mostly yoga mats), hula hoops, cardboard and assorted bits and pieces of plastics and junk. The eyes are also made from LEDs and light up, which are pretty cool! The only bad thing about this robot was that it had limited movement, and also I wore it on a very, VERY hot day in summer, so it was kind of like... cosplaying in a portable sauna.
Still, it was heaps of fun cosplaying in this group, and I'll have more photos up soon!
