For Fanime 2012, I'm working on a cosplay of Raiden from the upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It's built much like the MGS4 Raiden cosplay I did last year, with some newer, improved methods.
- Suit is a dance leotard over compression tights and shirt.
- Armor is 6mm craft foam. It's been covered in plasti-dip to seal the foam surface and smooth it out, and then sprayed and or handpainted in gloss black.
- Details made with silver sharpie, washers of different sizes, and more 6mm and 3mm craft foam.
TO DO: Shoes, Shoulder pauldrons, gloves, sword, mask/jawpiece
