Gogo Tomago is the yellow speedster of the Big hero 6 team. She's spunky, likes to take charge, and is an overall B. A.

After watching the movie Big Hero 6, my friend suggested that we have costumes created for the recent Chicago comic and entertainment expo. How could i deny such a request! well, let's get started!

Materials

-EVA foam

-Hot glue

-super glue

-large washers (home depot)

-circular magnetics (home depot)

-thigh high boots

-yellow craft foam

-gesso

-plastidip

-acrylic paint

-cardboard

-comic cardboard

-split clips

-red shoe laces

- Bondo

-wig

-zentai suit

-elastic

- chalk

-sponge foam

-black, red, yellow fabric

-yellow shirt

-rope light optional

-black plastic clips

-metal nuts

Step 1: Chest and Back

1) For the chest, take your tape measure and measure from the shoulder to the bottom of your rib cage. Now add on 1 more inch to the width. From there, cut out that measured rectangle out of the scratch paper.

2) fold it in half, draw in your template and then start cutting out the general shape from the folded paper (pic 1). When you unfold it, you should have the front piece (pic 2). (these are two different chest pieces, the technique is the same though)

3) do the same process for the back. (pic 3)

4) Cut these out from the EVA foam. However, get the back piece of paper cut it where the crease is, and mark where the crease is on the back foam piece. Save the paper pieces (pic 4)

5). From there, press the chest AND back foam pieces onto the person. The reason you added an extra inch to the width is so that you can make the fitting flush. Overlap the side flaps of the chest over the side flaps of the back piece. Mark off the excess foam and cut them off. (pic 5)

6). Glue your plastic buckles onto both sides and clip them in. (pic 6)

7). From there, cut the back piece in half where the crease is. The reason for this is that your back is not perfectly flat. It will look nicer if the armor is more contoured to your body.

8) Just as you overlapped the side pieces, overlap the two back pieces till they are nice and contoured to the shape of your body. Mark and cut them to the correct shape. Now glue them together.(pic 5)

9) now get more foam and put it into the shoulder sections. I just took some extra foam, placed it in the vacant gap where the shoulder strap would be, mark it, and then cut it. Glue in place once completed.

9) From there, grab your paper templates and draw in your extra details, such as extra plating, pectoral pieces, etc.. Basically anything that you want elevated.. You can use either craft foam or EVA foam, depending how thick you want it to be. (pic 5) (different build, same technique)

<p>Well, your cosplay is awesome. I've decided to make one of Gogo for a ComicCon, and I wanted to follow your tutorial, but I don't know where to buy all that stuff. and, I think is a bit too complicated, isn't it? Well, my email is fede17032001@libero.it and i would not spend much money... well, hope you can hep, text me if you can. Thank you and sorry for my bad english.</p>
<p>I love your costume. My son wants to go as Hiro for Halloween (37 days) I am all in on trying to do this as a father/son project, but the hardest part I am running into is the helmet. Yours looks awesome and I would love to do it the same way but not really grasping the method you used. I have seen an Evil Ted video on making foam helmet did you use that method or something totally different?</p>
hello! gah. i wish i had time to write up the hiro tutorial for you. i have all the pictures that go for the instrucable. just not enough time right now to write it. perhaps write me at spicypandacreations@gmail.com if you want the actual pictures for now.. <br><br>essentially i just kinda &quot;Jig saw&quot; puzzled pieces of EVA foam together to get the basic shape of the helmet i wanted.. so, i grabbed miscellaneous pieces of foam and cut and glued them all to shape. then i covered the whole thing with miscellaneous pieces of cardboard.. and then bondo-ed the whole thing to make it super hard. does that make sense? happy to help if you need it. even available for Skype consultation if requested.
Perfect sense...i was thinking of doing it the opposite was with cardboard first then foam. I got plent of cardboard to screw up with first. I definitely would appreciate the pictures will email you. My time table shrunk to 10/16 to get the helmet done otherwise he will have to buy a costume. I have the next 3 weekends to get it done then final two weekends for the body armor made and painted. I think that should be enough time.
<p>I was able to finish the tutorial for Hiro. Feel free to take a look for a more in-depth explanation. </p>
<p>Sounds great. email me at Spicypandacreations@gmail.com and if you need help via Skype consultation, I'm happy to. If i do have time, i will try my darnedest to get this Hiro tutorial up and running on instructables. hopefully i can do it by the weekend for you. </p>
Hello! I'm new to this site and I don't know how to PM you but I am interested in buying a blue spirit cosplay from you. I figured since this was a newer post, you had a better chance of seeing it. Thanks
Hello! the site allows for the person to get an email that someone has written on a particular instructable. so i got an email that &quot;someone messaged you on your GOGO instructable&quot;<br><br>The things that are for sale with this costume are the Mask, the swords + Sheath, the brown waist wrap, the brown shins wraps, and the brown wrist wraps. The mask and the sheath strap are adjustable for size.. the waist wrap is adjust able as well depending your size.<br><br>You would need to provide your own balaclava mask, gloves, shirt, pants, and shoes.. .. of you could technically just get a black zetai suit which includes everything as a body suit.<br><br> the price for everything i am offering (Shipping included) would be $150 if you are in the USA. if not, it shipping may be a little more expensive. Feel free to let me know if you are interested. If it is easier, you can also write me on FB as SpicyPandaCreations.. or at Spicypandacreations@gmail.com..<br><br>Thanks for looking!

<p>Oops, that's odd. Here it is https://www.instructables.com/contest/fandom/</p>
<p>Nice! Can't wait to see the rest. Did you do all of the helmets using the same method?</p>
you got it. all of them except baymax.. baymax was made of foam only because the helmet would have been way too heavy for the cosplayer. too many tutorials to write up but stick around! they'll be up ASAP =)<br>
