Liger Zero 2012_1 by StrayaObscura Liger Zero 2012_1 by StrayaObscura
Wish I had a better title for this, but I do not, save the good titles for the actual artwork. :P

For the past few months since AWA 2011 I've been working hard to improve on my Liger Zero cosplay. I've learned a lot while making it, considering it was my first cosplay ever, and have just kept adding things!

Recently added was the decals, lights to the head, new feet and leg armor, and I also completely redid the stabilizers that were on my hips.

As of this post, Momocon is this weekend and I will be doing stress tests up until then on the costume, along with adding lights to the claws for the Strike Laser Claw attack. Hopefully I will have more photos of this after the con!

Enjoy!

I'm currently discussing a commission of a Panzer with someone, so I am open to the idea of building them for others.

Ah yes, I was an artist in the alley this year and didn't
have time to get out and cosplay for more than like 2 hours. xD
Thank you!

I was at Momocon yesterday, and this was hands down my and my friend's favorite costume. She pointed you out while we were one level below you, and we both had momentary freak-outs.

so how much of the helmet is actually covering your head/face? I know it conceals enough since you get in trouble at the mall and I can't see your face but I'm curious XD

Well I am able to have limited vision under the jaw and
through the teeth. I designed the helmet around one of
those visor/sun hats, so it fits like one of those. :P
And the whole 'not seeing my face' comes from the black
balaclava I wear, as the point is to see Liger not me. Ha.

aaaah I see now, very cool. Is the vision bad enough you need someone to lead you around or can you see enough to walk around by yourself?

StrayaObscura Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Student
I can see by myself, but its nice to have a spotter
so that people to walk to close to me. Some people
don't have respect for us cosplayers and run too close!

yea, I can imagine your cosplay being totally taken out by some person not paying attention (is it still made of the foamcore? I know that stuff dents and creases easily D; )

Yeah it did almost happen. Yes it is, but
I've used materials to protect the edges
to keep it from freying, it would have to
be a nice blow for something to happen to it. xD

It looks outright amazing!
I want to ask for a size comparison between your head and the liger's... as I'm working on one liger head that has me stuck.

I am not sure what you mean by a size
comparison on the two, care to explain it?

I mean, how big is liger's head compared to yours? I'm just curious because my last cosplay ended up looking chibi 'cause the head ended up so big (but the paws probably didn't help either).

Well I started with one of those visor/sun hats
that you see sold in summer time. With a bit of
trimming on the bill of the hat I then built the
"top jaw" to Liger, added the "cockpit" and kept
going till it looked right. So, if I had to
put a number to it they are about 2 inches thicker
on each side of my head.

Stress tests and stabilizers?! Sounds like some intense cosplay. So much work obviously went into this, and I'm glad to know that somewhere it exists.

:iconstrayaobscura:
StrayaObscura Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012  Student
Yep, gotta make sure it will withstand people
bumping into me and such. ;) And as far as
stabilizers go those are an actual armor piece on
Liger, I just redesigned mine from the originals.
And thank you, I have worked on it, glad someone
noticed. :)
