Hyper Light Drifter - Colossalcon 2014 by italktotherain Hyper Light Drifter - Colossalcon 2014 by italktotherain
Cosplayer: Me
Series: Hyper Light Drifter
Photographer: Vagabond Photography www.facebook.com/avagaphoto?fr…

I'm really happy with how this costume turned out, I was nervous about how it would turn out and whether I would finish it in time, but this may be the most pleased I've ever been with a costume.  I can't wait to pull it out again and I can't wait to see the rest of the shots!!!!

I worked on this costume from mid-April right up until my 5 am photoshoot on Saturday

If you haven't heard of the game, check it out here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

So excited!!!! I'll have more pictures up as soon as I get them from the photographer >.<

If you don't mind me asking, what material is the sword blade made of? I recently got the urge to purchase/create a costume of the Drifter, but I've been wondering how I'd make/obtain the sword.

And you look AWESOME by the way just thought I'd mention that :D

Thank you! I'm really glad people are starting recognize this costume, the game should be amazing >.<

As for the sword, I used layers of acrylic to build it and then there are hand-soldered LEDs in the middle.  I don't have many build notes on it, I really struggled with the construction.  If you want to know more specifics I would be happy to share and take a look around to see if I have more in-depth pictures, but there were parts of it that I wasn't totally satisfied with (like the paint job, I painted the inside so that it would still feel smooth, but the acrylic glue was so caustic that it actually corroded the paint and I had to do another layer on the outside so it looks really uneven around the edges).  If I were you, I would maybe not try to use the same materials I did, it was really difficult and I had access to some tools like a bandsaw that were really important for cutting the acrylic and whatnot.  If I were to do it again, I might have a solid base and then use light panels on the outside (never worked with the stuff, but I can't imagine that being harder than this was) OR using a really vibrant glow paint.

I'm totally happy to share more details on my construction though if you would like them!

No problem! I can't wait for the game either! :D

I think that's enough for the detail, but more of them wouldn't hurt if you happen to stumble across them! And between you and me, I actually SUCK at construction/building/crafting objects, I'm more of a 2D artist myself. ^^; But even so I still have the desire to overcome my suckiness and show my passion for this soon-to-be awesome game!
