Gipsy Danger and Cherno Alpha Costumes

gipsy danger and cherno alpha

The Jaegers in Pacific Rim were destined to be epic costumes at conventions. RPF user dbsamurai and his friend Hailee decided to make seven feet tall Gipsy Danger and Cherno Alpha suits. They started last year and though they’re still making improvements, I’d say their costumes are already in good shape. They used Pepakura files to create the foam suits and posted step by step photos on The RPF. The pic below is of Gipsy’s muscles; Gipsy’s hands were a little challenging, but here’s how dbsamurai handled it:

I actually finished my hands earlier in the week, but I fiddled back and forth with making the left hand movable so I could mimic Gipsy’s “Neural Handshake” pose. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough tension to return them to their default positions, which left the fingers too floppy so I glued them down for two fists.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
