Clive Lee has 11 years of cosplay experience, and he’s spent many of those years making robot/mecha costumes. He’s made at least eight of them and specializes in incredibly detailed replicas of armor from Gundam. They’re nothing short of grand. One of his latest builds is Star Build Strike from Gundam, and it has several LED/light-up aspects. Lee’s taken his experience from building that costume and many others and shared a complete 11-part tutorial that goes over all the steps of making a mecha costume. Even if you’re not planning to build a robot, the information is useful and applicable for other cosplay.
