My mecha cosplay tutorial is completed at last! Compiling this tutorial is very challenging to me as there are a lot of methods and experiences that I want to share with everyone.   I hope that I can influence more people to start cosplaying mecha using this tutorial.

Mecha costume making is a way I train my determination and mental tolerance because the process of making it requires a lot of effort compared to most other types of costume.  Being in the suit is also quite a challenge where I have to maintain my balance on high platforms and move around with limited vision.  In making the costume, I identified three points when one will want to give up.  The first point is when the number of tasks involved piled up like a mountain and one will get discouraged by looking at this list.  The second point is when one is halfway through the making process and it seems like there is still a long way to go.  Without will and determination, one will usually stop at this point.  The third point is when the costume is near completion and one has already exhausted him/herself.  But he/she finds that there are still quite a lot of finishing touches to be made.  When one manages to overcome all the negative feelings and competes the costume, he/she will find great satisfaction as well as an unforgetable making experience.

I hope that everyone who uses this tutorial will find it useful and will enjoy themselves in the making and cosplaying process.
