Terra + Tron Cosplay 1 by vvmasterdrfan Terra + Tron Cosplay 1 by vvmasterdrfan
My Original Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep - Terra / Tron crossover cosplay.
View the full official image:

I had so much fun at DragonCon! Its almost better than Disney World. My costume got some amazing comments! I'm so glad it turned out good. Although it did need some repairing afterwards. It's high maintenance.

For this shoot, I am not using my keyblade. Ejen didn't like how it was shooting. Which is fine. You can see a little more detail. View the official image above for the full costume and explanation on its making.

Special thanks to :iconcosplay-in-america: for the photoshoot! Check out his amazing cosplay photography and his published book!

Yes I can see out of it. It's not easy to wear!

It is made from Acrylic sheets that were melted and cut to shape, a window tint film was put on afterwards to darken the acylic. Then i glued the pieces together and attached to the helmet :)

Good luck!

haha, awesome!  
sounds like it'd be really rough to do; how thick of sheets did you use? shaping it and trying to curve it, especially on the more detailed pieces towards the bottom are what's really getting to me with mine, hahaha...

Try practing with pieces of poster board paper first. That way you get the shape perfect and fold them to the right angles. After that use them as a template to cut the acrylic. Use very thin acrylic. Like 1mm thick. :) that should help!

haha, i've been using a pepakura template, but getting the plastic to stay and curve enough without becoming brittle and breaking is being a real pain...dunno if it's just the type of acrylic i'm using or what, but i'll keep trying!

Oh gosh this is just beautiful <3 I love the shapes and wow using reflective material is such a good idea * A*

Ahh I'm going to be that annoying person who asks how you did stuff but I'm just wondering how did you go about making the helmet's visor? Does it have good visibility? * o*

dawe thanks so much! im glad you agree :D

I first did paper models to make the layout and then remade it in plastic. the visor is acrylic heated and bent to shape. I used car window tint to tint it so its like wearing sunglasses, although it's still hot and nasty int he helmet lol
