My name is Kenny, and I've always been a huge fan of technology! I've always been good with wires. I have thousands of random wires I've collected throughout the years) My other talents consists of soldering, modifying components, computers, and game systems, operating systems etc.
Star Trek The Next Generation movie series had a race of cybernetic organisms call Borg. They assimilate other species of humans or other aliens into their collective to make them like the rest of Borg. I've always been a huge fan, and I wanted to create a similar idea of how they look in the movies, but modify it to my own design, and ideas.
I spent 100's of hours, and thousands of dollars on this costume. I have hot glue burns, solder burns, razor cuts, drill bit cuts, and super glue still on my fingers, haha, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
One of my favorite features (besides the laser:P), is that It has a built in drink holster in the crotch area with a straw that comes up through the mask so I can enjoy a cocktail with hands free! I also made a little door hatch that allows you to go to the bathroom instead of taking the whole costume off!
Here is a list of some more details about the Costume I designed, and built.
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for looking!
