This plague doctor cosplay was inspired from my trip to Venice. Much of the folklore around plague doctors originated from around that area. It turns out that the bird-looking masks are both to scare the diseases, and to fill the mask noses with fragrances to keep the stench out. I also wanted to try out some intricate leather work and wanted to keep my Halloween costume simple this year.
This is the first time I wore tights … I swear.
Ya that’s my Dad up there. That’s right, the planet.
This thing was heavy, but the custom foam on the interior made it really nice to wear. This little beauty was sold.
This was a difficult cosplay, partially due to the size of the whole thing. It was difficult to get through doors. I tried to keep the weight down, so the hands were made of foam, but they did not last over time. But it was a sight to behold on Halloween day!
Making these portal shooters was so much fun, and reminded me of my University days working on the formula Car since they are made the exact same way! fiberglass shells has kept these shooters sturdy. Now I just need to find some time to re-do the electronics and make the claws stronger by using 3d printing.
Yup, you read that correctly. I tried to Cosplay as an elevator. Complete with working plexiglass doors as a face cover. the push buttons function correctly, and the elevator dongs when the doors open.
With some copper pipe handiwork, and some really awesome leather-work on custom made goggles, this was a clean and fancy cosplay. I had to wear some eye liner to really make this cosplay work!
This was a fun Cosplay. being already covered in fur (mostly), it felt very natural.
I’m really sad I lost that green bag. I had it imported with the mask directly from Lithuania.
