So last night I was the winner on Syfy's new show Cosplay Melee!!! Similar to Faceoff we had 3 days to build a brand new character from head to toe. Our theme was Sci Fi War-games so we had to construct an original character that could fit into that world. I chose to make a new Destiny class a mix of Hunter and Warlock. My characters name is Sarus and he is a technical Necromancer! Using Hive bones in his armor he is able to resurrect not only fallen enemies to assist in his battles but fallen guardian allies.
The twist for our episode was a lighting challenge consisting of LEDs, EL tape and Christmas lights. We were told that we would be judged first in the dark (for overall effect) and then in the light (build constructions and paint). For a 3 day build I was very happy with how everything came together. That is in insane amount of work in very little time.
Almost all of the costume is foam fabrications except for the mask which was hand sculpted and resin cast.
