Jet Vac Cosplay by BlackRabbitArtisan Jet Vac Cosplay by BlackRabbitArtisan
It feels like it's been an age since I last posted! I've been working busily on two speed-builds for Matthew and myself from the game, Skylanders. I debuted Jet Vac on Sunday for the Autism Awareness Day walk in Melbourne, with a group of friends that also cosplayed Skylanders characters. Matthew was unfortunately sick so didn't make it, but he will debut Chop Chop this coming weekend at Supanova.

There's still a few things to add/fix, such as his toes and his vac pack; I ran out of time, and my original idea for the toes didn't work so I have to come up with a solution before the weekend. The costume was made using EVA foam for the most part. My first time working with foam, as well as my first time making heads for a costume! The feathers are all made from sheets of fun foam, and his beak is several layers of EVA foam that I sculpted into shape with a dremel. The heads were definitely the most challenging part of the build and I had to rebuild each head 3 times before I got it right :faint: . But, I think it paid off and I'm quite pleased with the end result. I'll also post the process of how I went about building his head.

Asksfjdls :blush: thank you! Definitely a challenge as I've never built anything like it before, but so happy it worked out! The kids at the Autism walk loved it, which is always reassuring! It's funny that parents and kids alike know the characters. Lol we got stopped in the carpark for a photo from a few guys on a Buck's Party XD Thanks again :D

Haha! That's awesome! It's so funny how all the parents know them too. I sell them at work, and I swear the parents know so much more than the children sometimes! :giggle:
Keep being awesome at what you do! :) I love this stuff, and I'm sure others do too! :)
