Raiden - Lightning Bolt Action by effektdmentality Raiden - Lightning Bolt Action by effektdmentality
From my photoshoot with Eurobeat Kasumi at San Diego Comic Con 2011. This was taken the morning before the Kojima/MGS autograph signing, where I got my Raiden helm signed! :D

Since the helmet is now autographed by Hideo, Yoji, and Yumi, I'm pretty much retiring Raiden. I may pull him out of my cosplay closet in the future (I'd make a new helmet to wear for sure), but for now, SDCC was Raiden's last big outing.

EDIT: Color adjustment by me

You can find the rest of the shoot here: [link]

This is almost all 6mm craft foam for the armor, glued to a spandex suit. The armor pieces were cut out, formed into curved shapes using heat, and glued to the suit. The best advice I can give is to get lots of reference and look up tutorials on how to make craft foam armor.

My MGS4 headset was foam posterboard, the Revengeance headset was 6mm craft foam. I would use the craft foam since it's more flexible/comfortable. The chin of MGS4 was all foam posterboard, and then I connect the tops using a headband. I wore my wig over it so you would never see the headband:

Foam was glued to the spandex using E6000 adhesive. I drew the templates for the armor myself, I didn't find it online.

I told you, I hand drew my templates from looking at reference. I don't have digital copies. Even if I did, I would be hesitant to send them out. I put a lot of my own hours into finding the reference, studying it, and drawing and redrawing patterns to fit. Sorry, but you're gonna have to do your own work.
