May I ask what the costume is made out of? I'm very curious cuz it looks like legit metal lol

It is made in plastic bottles ^^'
 ( like coca cola 2 liters)  it is an old costume -2008 made - and, in 2008, the lack of material was a problem, now we work with eva foam, but in 2008 we used to work with plastic bottle, it was really cheap and fragile :/

Amazing job !!! It's hard to believe it's hand made (plastic bottles ?!). Anyway good job, i ve got one question tho, re all of your costumes hand made by you  ?

Thank you :) yes it is really plastic bottle ( coca cola 2L).
Yes, we made our own costumes.
First, I uploaded here only my costumes but as my friend don't speak english and don't use internet for sharing his passion, I modify the DA page for both.
So, you can find Jerome's work and mine.

You can see more pictures and WIP on…

Yes, during 2004 to 2008, we used to made armors with plastic bottles because it was a cheap material and foam wasn't a known material.So, it was difficult to find material for armor making.

But plastic bottle is really limited for giving correct shape :/ painting remove easily on plastic.
In 2009, we discovered foam ( EVA ).
Now we used to do armors in foam, the result is better I think.
But, it make me smile remember all those hours spend with plastic bottles ^^

Cosplay is about system D, you can use unexpected things for a costume :)
