Seven Foot Juggernaut Costume Is a Beast

juggernaut cosplay 1

X-Men’s Juggernaut is not a costume for the faint of heart. Bryan Doell, a.k.a. BMP Props, wasn’t scared of the challenge though. He constructed a seven foot tall replica of the character’s costume for the recent MegaCon in Orlando, Florida. Though construction has been taking place in earnest since April, Doell started planning for a Juggernaut costume in July 2014. He used a clever method to figure out sizing. He used a Juggernaut action figure for reference and to figure out how the costume would fit on his frame, Doell used paper dolls of himself and then scaled up. You can see a pic just below.

Doell said, “My lifesize Juggernaut costume is done. I can’t even express what I’m feeling right now, this project pushed me to work outside of the box, way out of my comfort zone, and now it’s done. 100% scratch built, hand carved, freehanded, gigantic awesomeness.”

He added Steven of SKS Props helped him get through the project because he had tips after his Warcraft orc build.

  1. We saw Byran at Megacon this past weekend! (https://www.flickr.com/photos/superdeathsquid/27224328481/in/album-72157668976770035/) I hadn’t really thought about how much work must have been put into his costume, very cool.
