For the Glory of Humanity by Luvnatsu For the Glory of Humanity by Luvnatsu
Levi from Shingeki no Kyojin
Survey Corps ver.


Levi is my most favorite character in Shingeki no Kyojin. Some people may think he is cold and heartless. But he does care and that is why he fights... for the glory of humanity. I read the manga already but watching episode 21 of the anime still made me sad {{p´Д`q}} As a leader Levi surely knows how to keep his cool but he was at a loss for words with what he saw. Holding in all his sadness and anger must be unbearable. (╥﹏╥)

The 3D maneuver gears were a combined effort of GQBravo and me. It was our first time really making props... and in this amount of detail. It felt like such an accomplishment when the gear is all done! The hardest part is to figure out how to secure the sheaths on the thighs and still be able to walk/run freely. Overall, the gears survived three days at the convention with no malfunction so I'm glad. The only things that will require repair are the blades which had become dull... as in the real battles haha...

You are deff. one of the best I have seen! the gear is awesome too! im actually trying to make mine now, I just wanna cry haha so much work. overall they look pretty flawless! im still sad I missed you at otakon. but if you go to katsucon, I hope to see you there? haha


oh and if you don't mind me asking, where did you buy your wig? ive been looking everywhere but idk what wig is or isn't good. im so scared to commit to one because I don't know what it looks like on a person D:

Luvnatsu Sep 4, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thank you! It's very likely that I'll bring this cosplay to Katsuon ;)

I had the same feeling when making the gear. I didn't realize what I got myself into until I was already in the middle of it. Good luck with your project!
The wig is from taobao. I had to trim it a bit but at least it wasn't a major overhaul.

hahaha ya the gear didn't look as difficult as it really is. I cry a little when I see my progress. DX lol thanx!

oh awesome! thank you!

I really didn't like Levi at first... But I really grew to respect him. He's a pretty cool character. Also, I can understand why he was so cocky at times, like when he beat up Eren at the court meeting.

But clearly, he's withholding tons of rage and anger... I can't imagine being able to do that for so long.
"I'm talking about your limbs, not the Titans. But you wouldn't mind that, would you?"
Pretty darn good cosplay too.

Heh it's not hard to understand why he is idolized by many citizens and fellow soldiers.
And thanks~ :meow:
