My Necrostrider costume for Comicon Phoenix
I have been working on a concept costume for the Comicon Convention in Phoenix for awhile now and this past weekend was the convention. My idea for this costume was to create a stilted character that was unique using a technique that I've used in the past on other projects which utilizes the pepakura design software. I first found a head design that suited what I was attempting to achieve in my character, the characters name is the Necrostrider a spirit which has risen from the ashes of a dead forest, Necro means dead, so the "dead strider." I wanted a humanoid body paired with a canine looking skull and then add the antlers which gave me a cross of a canine/deer creature. The body was made from tight black pants and a old T-shirt I glued fur onto the pants an t-shirt then left some spaces open to give it the effect that it was mangy and burnt.
I 3d printed the talons then painted and glued them to a glove.
The video's below show the operation of the jaw, head and sound effect with the motion.
