Buzz Lightyear Costume Goes to Infinity and Beyond

buzz-lightyear-costume-1

Redditor RioTheDragonMan has been keeping tabs on the cosplay subreddit for years and was inspired by all the photos and creativity, as well as seeing costumes at PAX East. He decided it was time to build something of his own and he did so for Halloween by crafting a Buzz Lightyear ensemble. I always like when makers go big for their first project. Buzz’s outfit includes several armor pieces and embellishments, so it was quite the undertaking. Rio spent just over a month making the costume.

He used a punching bag dummy as a base because it was about his size and started by assembling the foam armor around it. He used Mod Podge, water, and Plastidip to seal the foam in order to prep it for paniting. You can see a couple of in-progress photos below.
