Mass Effect Urdnot Wrex Cosplay

Amazing costumes worn at Dragon Con are still showing up around the web, and Kevin Jones’ Urdnot Wrex cosplay from Mass Effect is one of them. The costume is massive and warm, but the challenges didn’t stop Jones from wearing it to the crowded convention. YouTuber tank9 spoke with Jones about the build — he spent roughly a year making the costume and worked from life size drawings for reference. He used EVA foam, latex, resin, and more to craft the krogan. He said the most challenging part of the costume was making it functional, wearable, and comfortable.

You can see photos of the costume and build process on Instagram and The Stranded Robot.
