This is the Terra Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep/Tron crossover costume that I made with my new Ends of Earth keyblade. Unveiled at Dragon*Con 2012 which I had a ton of fun at Anyways here are the full pictures with the new keyblade! Enjoy
The design process was a long process. Because Terra in Birth By Sleep struggles with the darkness, I choose the lights to be red/orange. I also took light design influences from the Sentries and black gaurds in TRON: Legacy on the front and more of a Sam Flynn design on the rear. This is followed by the Birth By Sleep logo that the KH trio wears in the center of Identity disc on my back. Some influences from Terra's Armor also are carried through the shoulder pads, the entire right arm, the upper left leg, and of course the Terra helmet. There is a diagonal theme playing, with the left arm/right leg to be more "Tron-like" and the right arm/left leg more "Terra-like" with the weapons corresponding to each arm. The Ends of Earth keyblade is on the "Terra arm" while the identity disk is held on the "Tron arm".
LOTS OF DESIGNING. LIKE A WEEK OF DRAWING DETAILS AND PARTS AT EVERY ANGLE AND PAPER FOLDING STUDIES. I WISH I HAD A TWIN.
I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I AM GOING TO WEAR THIS THING FOR 4 DAYS. ITS HOT AND THE PLASTIC CLINGS TO ME AND GETS SWEATY. THE VENT HOLES DONT DO A GOOD ENOUGH JOBBBB. I CAN GO UP THE STAIRS VERY SLOWLY AND I CANT SIT DOWN >_>, though I do have a nice pocket to put all my things heh
Im not a kingdom hearts fan but i Do love tron legacy like no other. I think your costume design is perfect for the armor and such and i hope you know that the orange color means its a black gaurd or miltary type program. if you didnt surprise thats what it means. the keyblade however is (from a tron perspective) wrong if it was a weapon it would have the lights running down the entire length of the border. Unless you were going for the none activated weapons which would be like what you did. otherwise Im impressed and think its bad ass i am being a bit picky about the tron stuff but only because im seriously analysing it. Keep up the good work and dftba
Hi! I absolutely love this costume. I was wondering though what material you used for the armor? I'm looking for material that is hard yet flexible for an outfit of mine. Do you have any ideas that may help me?
I thought this was digital art at first, then I read the description and could hardly believe you made that. This is really, really cool. Amazing work here, and very creative, I never woulda thought of it lol
Oh... my... gosh... That's so frightening... remind to never irritate Terra... Anyway, the detail is outlandishly beautiful, and just wonderfully designed. Making all those effects is hard, I know. I've tried and failed horribly. Still, this work is beautiful beyond compare. I will probably be looking at this for a long time to come. Awesome job!
