This was premiered last year at D*C 2011 and will be appearing again this year. For a thread on how it was made, check out my site.
That's pretty awesome . Nice work!
Ok...seriously now...that's really flippin' cool!!
Very cool and some excellent photoshop!
I've always loved this uniform, now I have some idea how to go about it, thank you!
Cool stuff man!
WOW. I've seen so many copies of what the cartoon actually showed, I've never even heard of a realistic version of what it'd really look like. I'm impressed! Having flown in several military aircraft (both prop and jet powered) over the years, it looks like you could really fly with it.
You nailed it!
like a boss!
That's amazing! It's really cool to see a costume from an anime, cartoon, or comic and have it made so realistic and functional. It's not the easiest thing to do, but you hit it out of the park!
I love ROBOTECH that is outstanding!
any word on a potential robotech movie ever?
Hey, we met at D*C last year! I have several photos of you
Nice work, the translation of the costume works really well.
Saw this last year. Loved it then and love it now.
I think I saw you somewhere wearing that, pretty awesome, I'd like to make a mecha costume from Macross 7 that actually plays music
That is gorgeous, I'd love to see what you can do with the DYRL flightsuit. I especially like the helmet, looks like it can match up with the Yamato version par for par and not look as bulbous on someone's head.
I got a buddy that is an illustrator for Macross and Gundam work. He's also a costumer (Star Wars), so I'm gonna send him a link to your pic. Very cool!
Thanks everyone for the awesome comments! Sorry I've not responded sooner, but I was crazy with con season (as I'm sure most of you can understand)
I talked about this costume for 2 years before I actually decided to go for it. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. As far as everyone liking the "realism" of it - thanks! I didn't want to do a cartoony version - I wanted it to look as gritty and real and war-worn as possible.
This is really inspiring me to do something similar with a flight suit from a favor anime. That really looks amazing.
I saw this on one of the Robotech fan pages on FB and showed it to my husband. We both thought your flight suit is awesome!!! Robotech costumes are on our bucket list.
I am a HUGE fan of the Robotech series. Especially The Macross Saga! So excited to see this costume. Very Nice cant wait to see your build thread.
HOLY ****, that is an awesome costume. Fantastic work, very impressive!
Very good work!
