The armored suit glows with green LEDs and so does the sword. According to his profile, Fredrik has only been working within the cosplay hobby since March 2016.

You can trace the progress made by scrolling through Fredik’s Instagram account. You’ll see much of Genji’s armor was crafted from EVA foam — check out a few in progress pics below.
