Because of the great response I got from my Dragon Age Inquisition Instructable helmet build thread. I have decided to make a full Instructible on my DEAD SPACE Isaac Clarke Level 3 Cosplay costume!!!!!
This build was by far the most detailed costume/prop I have ever attempted to create. But, after its completion it was also my most satisfying and rewarding. The entire build took over 3 months and 300 hours of blood, sweat, and super glue :)
Before we begin let me say some of the products that are used in prop building can be bad for you :(
So be safe!!!
Always wear eye protection, wear gloves, and use a respirator when needed.
Lets get started!!!!
Step 1: Reference Material
As with all of my prop builds reference material is key. When you start to think about making a prop from a video game, movie, etc. Always try and find as many reference images as you can. For this costume I actually played through the game back to where Isaac gets the Level 3 suit. I took numerous screen shots and posted them all over my basement wall for reference and inspiration. The great thing about having a game is you can rotate the camera around your figure to get a good look at every angel. Knowing that the RIG would be one of the most detailed parts I made sure to take lots and lots of pics.
