There are people who are born with some extraordinary talents.
Everyone has a quality, while one can be a good singer, the other can be good in some really different thing and we found a girl from Switzerland, named, Martina, who is extremely talented in game designing. She has created such a mind-blowing costume which shocked everyone and grabbing the attention of many cosplayers all over the world. She shared the video of her in the costume on Reddit and it has received over 100.000 likes and number of comments. The costume looks unbelievably amazing and there is no doubt that everyone would fall in love with it!
“The character is a statue that I found online, designed by Hui Zou and built by R-one studio.
I immediately fell in love with the design and asked the artist if I could make a cosplay from it.My idea was to make my own low-poly version of the character and they agreed. Lowpoly means I want the costume to look digital and artificial instead of realistic, like an early stylized 3D computer graphic come to life.
So I started making my own templates in Blender, a 3D software,” Martina told Bored Panda.
“I don’t consider myself a master at costume making. I still have a ton to learn. Love doing it tho,” she said. Making costumes is just a hobby of mine, she added.
She arranged all the necessary materials for the costume from a local hardware store. “It took a year from planning to finish, I spent around 1000 hours on it.
I’m still rather new to making costumes so sometimes it takes many tries to make something work.For example, I’ve never cast epoxy resin before, so it took four attempts to get the heart gem right. I spent a lot of time planning on how to attach all the floating armor pieces.
I built the costume with PVC which is rigid, so I had to figure out how to be able to move at all, how I can get in and out of the armor on my own, and how to make the pieces detachable for transport because they’re huge – the scythe in particular.”
“The blue piece on the throat is see-through reflective vinyl. It’s like looking through sunglasses,” the designer said. People can’t stop praising this woman’s skills, people asked her if the costume will ever be available for sale. However, the designer said that she is not thinking to sell the piece just yet and should she ever consider doing it.
“Also, to pass doors you need to crabwalk because of the shoulders.” Another thing about the costume is that it gets dirty very easily if not handled with care but “if you handle it with relatively clean fingers it’s no problem.”
“I’ve always loved crafting. During the day I work behind a computer screen so I itch to build something tangible as a balance. Cosplay is a wonderful hobby to me that combines my passion for art, animation, design, 3D software, and crafting. Last but not least, I met a lot of wonderful people through making costumes,” Martina told Bored Panda.
On the amount of attention she is getting from the Internet, she said “The response has been overwhelming, especially since it’s not a well-known character from a specific game or movie that has a big fandom.
I knew from my previous costumes that people seem to appreciate the polygonal aesthetic but I would have never thought it [would] blow up like this.”
The costume is absolutely amazing!
