I am thankful for these highly detailed references! they helped a lot in this cosplay prop WIP.

This way you can easily understand what is needed,how big and where is needs to be placed.

Step 2: Tools and material

i was just wondering what thickness of styrofoam board you used for the boxes. was it 5mm? thanks for the tutorial, it looks really great!! :)

can you give detailed measurements on the steamer part in the rear

Kion Designs (author)  Han_Solo_Order664 months ago

Hey Jared. So sry, but the gear is not with me anymore. So no detailed measurement :(
But if you want to be sure, use some paper or cardboard forcreating your personal measured template first.

thanks i eventually just ended up looking for average hight of 17 year old and derived the mesurements from refrence photos but thanks.

is there an english version?

Hey! So as I am limited on suplies and budget, could I use carboard for the blades and handle? Thanks!

You can't also make this out of home supplies, you need to go to michaels, home depot, or any department/construction store in your local area, good luck on your project!

Hello,
That is totaly up to you. But I think it shouldn't make a problem. Use some thicker cardboard combined with a some layers of woodglue. this will harden the material and it is more safe to carry it around and not get to much damage on it easiy.

You probably can't, you'll need to spray paint, and cardboard, and foam falls apart when spray painted. I was left with no choice other than to use wood. At the end it was inexpensive, and it was awesome. But mind you, this project is very expensive. I spent around 200-300. You probably shouldn't do this if you have a small budget.

Hi, this is amazing!!! I am in need of help! I need to find a way to get my back peice to wrap around my waist securly. How did you do that?

One strategy I used which is easier is just make a belt around it, cut holes for the belt to go in the back piece.

Kion Designs (author)  natli.morales3 months ago

Hey Natli,
we used two pairs of bolt and nut to create a click in system at the back sides of your belt. You can see the idea in step 4 picture 1.
this means you need two additional wholes in your basic belt where the bolt can be fit through. the motor thng from the gear will simply be hung into. kind of a bayonette lock.
hope this is helping you out.

Pil-Z made it!7 months ago

Thanks so much. This was probably my main reference tutorial with another one named johnny and junkers i think. Loved your tutorial. Again, without this tut probably couldn't have made it.

IMG_2635.JPGIMG_2629.JPGIMG_2634.JPG

Hey Pil-z I am thinking of making this I am a huge Attack on Titan fan do you think you could post or send me via direct message the mesurements you used for your pieces?

Sure, sorry for the late reply, I hope I still replied on time for your cosplay, I will send you the measurements later, and I reccomend the main material you use is cardboar from home depot, and a white foam board.
Kion Designs (author)  Pil-Z7 months ago

Dude!!!you rock! this looks awesome!!great job and I am glad I could help you with this!!
feel free to show me the full cosplay later on ;)

Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me what thickness plywood you used, and what the overall measurements were for the handle pieces and the blade. if you had a template you used to create them, that would be greatly appreciated!

Kion Designs (author)  electricwalrus2 months ago

hey there,
the plywood is 3layered and is about 4-5 mm thick.
I uploaded my template test pic to this step so you can download it und testprint and calibrate it to the size you need it :)
good luck!

What did you use for the handle on the swords?

Kion Designs (author)  AmaterasuWH2 months ago

Hey,
so the handles are made from several layers of plywood + old bicycle breaks. the red brown-ish gripy handle parts are some kitchen mats from ikea.

would this be applicable and or look right with real O2 tanks attached in it's place? Or would weight be an issue for the rig. Thanks in advance!

Kion Designs (author)  alex.kulbitsky5 months ago

I don't think real O2 tanks would be a good idea. to heavy, to dangerous and probably to expensive.
The tanks from this instructable are plastic pipes to keep posters safe.

it would weigh down on the belt and break it or not sit right I think. It would for mine anyway. I have to make mine as light as possible because all the suit is held together by the belt :/

draco.velarde6 months ago

but may i ask does it work i am trying along with my friends to creat 3d gear that works

Kion Designs (author)  draco.velarde6 months ago

Hey there Draco.
No. this gear is not functional!
Didin't have the time and money to put that much energy and effort into it.
But maybe you'll succeed!

I have seen a man crafting a functional one long time ago on youtube.

I was so confused on step 3 picture five. What are the dimensions? or are they the dimensions of my backside/butt.

Kion Designs (author)  OmarK17 months ago

Hey there,
I took reference picture #2 - the swords handle to be exact - and tried different scales on a DIN A4 print. this way I could figure out the (almost) right size for my swords.
Here are the handles .maybe this can help you :)

How did you get the paper versions of the sword ( Like the Template ) I cant draw a big enough version, Can you tell me how or where too get them?

JasmineG8 months ago
What are the measurements of it all... I need help. I almost started making the engine but do not know the measurements
Pil-Z JasmineG8 months ago

Just kinda curious, for when do you want it? If you're planning to have this for Halloween, I would recommend something else. It took me around 2 months to fully get this finished. There is no perfect tutorial out there. By referring to this there is nothing you can follow fully. You have to get creative and be very very crafty and always improvise. Good luck on your project! :)

Kion Designs (author)  JasmineG8 months ago

Hey JasmineG,
the boxes are made out of a 70x100cm foam board sheets
the engines size is depending on your body size.somehow.. :) so whatever you feel good with as the basis of the engine.
swords about 80cm long from tip to tow

DayneP9 months ago

This... This is too cool. I almost literally cried because I knew I couldn't make it. Sucks for me.

Pil-Z DayneP9 months ago

Try it out man! I wasn't confident at all but once I started working with the materials it felt awesome. Anyways it doesnt have to be a perfect replica. Based on your pic I would recommend having a parent help you. Also this website is not too clear with the swords. It's a tad bit late to start if you want to make this for halloween but if you work every single day hard non stop then I'm sure that you could achieve it. All the difficult and confusing questions have been asked. If you want to know how to make the swords check this out. http://cosplayruinedmylife.tumblr.com/post/53624044593/basic-craft-foam-attack-on-titan-3dmg-blade
