Awesome Gears of War Costume

gears of war costume

The Palace Guard in Gears of War is charged with protection of the Queen and, wait for it, her palace. Their armor looks intricate but also sturdy; it seems like it would be complex to build. RPF user SufferTheLocust accepted the challenge though and created a replica of the costume. He began with a leftover lower jaw piece from a Shao Kahn costume and got inspired from there. Here’s what he did for the head piece:

After re-drawing the shapes to be symmetrical i templated them on to a plastic sheet that i still don’t know the origin of. It’s between 4mm and 8mm, black, strong, reasonably light weight, can easily be cut with a knife and most importantly – thermoformable. It’s almost like a rigid plastic/foam. I was given it as a cover sheet for some cladding sheets we install in work and tried it out. It’s basically packaging to be discarded, most of the things i make includes this stuff.

He attached the heat molded foam attached to a cycling helmet base.
