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.
