Shadow of the Colossus is a game filled with interesting designs and characters. We’ve featured a Quadratus costume before, and today is all about Gaius. It’s the third colossus, and he kind of looks like a knight. Nickolas Phillips made a monstrous Gaius costume and debuted it at Animazement; he did so to help promote his wife Candace’s business AFK for Cosplay. The finished product looks amazing, but it’s as heavy as it looks. Phillips said he could only wear it for about 20 minutes at a time. He spent 300 hours working on the cosplay; he made everything by hand except for the stilts — he got drywall stilts from a vendor. He even made the aluminum frame.
You can see how the costume moves in this video on Instagram.

Hey there, Nick here. Love the Article, thanks for the shout out. If you could do me a huge favor and tweak one thing, my wife, Candace Phillips has a business named Afk for Cosplay, I built the suit to help promote our talents as a business. If you could word it a little different, I’m sure she won’t kill me. Lol. It just sounds like AFK is my name, I would hate to confuse people, and I would hate to be murdered by my wife!
Again, thanks so much for the article!!! I loved making the costume. If you have any other questions for me or her, just shoot us a message on the Facebook page.
