Mikasa Ackerman from Shingeki no Kyojin Survey Corps ver.
I guess I didn't learn my lesson last year because, once again, I went outdoor to do a shoot in the middle of the day under the summer sun. But this time it was worse because I was wearing a leather jacket and a scarf. 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 require repair are the blades which had become dull... as in the real battles haha...
You can see our costumes in MLZ Studios' awesome video. HERE
