Four years ago, after the result of a breakup, I chose to make a hasty cosplay for a convention. However, I worked ont he costume for the wrong reasons and with the wrong motivations, so the project became one of poor effort, and little to no technical skill or planning. I want to revisit Lord recluse however, and do it right! This time around, I'm not leaving it for 2 weeks before the convention, and I actually have much more experience with better materials now after working on the Fury, and learning a lot about how to carve insulation foam and seal that. The only thing I wise I had for this project was access to a Lathe. It would make life so much easier for making the spider arm sections ._.

Anyways, that's my plan as of now. Next convention is anime boston in March 2014. If I finish lord recluse before halloween, I will also start putting together a grave lord nite costume using all the skeletons I can get on clearance after the holiday ends ^^

Amazing Fury cosplay. :) Inspiration for sure to get my tail in gear for my own suit later on! I think what sers yours apart from others is how clean it is. One of the best I've seen by far!

Well, that comes down to material choice I think. I chose to use hard materials with rigid structure, which holds nice crisp forms. Many zoids I've seen use softer materials, and often result in droop, and uneven surfaces. I can think of at least 3 costumes that used something like cloth or craft foam, and It just didn't look right to me. Nothing against their skill level, but they were working with the wrong kind of material IMO.

I'm sure you've been asked this many times, but have you ever considered selling your Fuhrer suit?

I have actually, and I haven't been right out asked if it WAS for sale (implying interest) The thing has cost me close to 1200 dollars all around, But I'd willingly part with it in it's current condition for 500 assuming someone else were to pick it up. Mind you the pictures shown aren't it's current state. If someone were interested in the fuhrer in it's original finished condition, meaning I'd have to replace some parts, and reattach certain things, I'd certainly expect to sell it closer to 800 after the labor.
