Mikasa Ackerman by Luvnatsu Mikasa Ackerman by Luvnatsu
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.

Your cosplay turned out so well! I really love your make up and especially your neat work with the 3DMG. * A *;  Wonderful. The handles of your blades look so realistic.

If you don't mind, but how did you solve the problem with attaching the sheaths on the thighs? With clips or bands? :0

Thank you for the kind words.
We sewed some belt loop thingy on the side of the pants to hold the straps that hang the sheaths from the belt in place.

Hehe I can imagine the effort & time. I'm making mine in between study breaks so I think it'll be 2014 when I finish it :XD:
I liked yours because you noticed that the 3D gear box isn't gray (anime version) like many others thought. Well done ^^

Luvnatsu Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It is A LOT easier to just spray paint everything in gray/silver. But I'm glad I stuck to the anime version because it definitely adds more interest to the overall costume.
Good luck with your project! ;)

It is yeah. I also noticed that in some of the official art the 3D gear main part does look gray-ish - mostly when they're not in bright light.
And thank you :hug:

Excellent job!! I love the two soldiers flying up to the steeple in the background, that's a very nice touch and subtle.

 

The 3DMG really look good. It's that attention to detail that really sells the cosplay.
