Do You know how to make an Optimus one of those?

Like, what would it be made out of?
I'm having no luck with cardboard....

:iconmiraibaby:
miraibaby Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
Well, Breakdown here was made out of foam board, craft foam and Spandex. Cardboard tends to be more trouble than it's worth, as it tends to not survive travel very well, doesn't last long after its first wear, and sucks up paint like the sponge it is, which creates this terrible wave effect across your rig.

What I start with is a cardstock base design. After I make sure it works, the pieces get transferred to either foam board or craft foam as I edge toward the final design.

This is just amazing! And of course finished soon after the episodes ;n; But I am in love with this. The blue is perfect! I now really regret not going to BotCon this year :( I just want to give you a hug.

And thank you for spending the time to take photos of the WIP. I've always questioned how some creations are made, specially with what materials are used. I thought you had used metallic paint at first, but then when you stated you used fabric, I was completely surprised!

So amazing! I really adore how you handled the armor and how it conforms so well to your own form! Those boots in particular are kick ass! I sure wish my boots turned out that cool...we'll have to try that again. Might I ask how's the mobility in this rig?
Reply
:iconmiraibaby:
miraibaby Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
Thanks. :D

Mobility is fairly limited, to be honest. I have almost full range of motion in my head, shoulders are almost null and void, I can only get about a 90' angle out of my elbows, and only a 45' out of my knees. Ankles are limited, but I don't much need those besides for posing, and it can do most of those pretty smoothly. I can sit down though. :D

Great. That's the most challenging part. My Slipstream costume was fairly mobile given the size (the folding wings helped tremendously) but my boots were uncomfortable as hell!

:iconmiraibaby:
miraibaby Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
Haha! Well, Animated costumes are very mobile as it is -- Lockdown is very easy to move in so far. Breakdown, however, is covered in FAR more pieces than Lockdown is.
