Attack on Titan - 3DMG by Rixari Attack on Titan - 3DMG by Rixari
I got my 3D gear all finished up for Dragon*Con! I'm very happy with how they turned out. Although, I wore them too often and they're gonna need some serious repair work before the next con lol.

(copy/pasting this, sorry xD)
Box sheathes

The base of the boxes were made using posterboard foam (super cheap at walmart), which is just hot-glued together. To hide the foam edges I glued "for sale" sign plastic over the top of the foam, and filled in the seams from that with bondo and glazing compound. The tanks were made from cardboard tubes and I glued sign plastic over the top of them as well to hide the cardboard texture. I used halves of Christmas ornaments for the rounded part at the front of them, but a lot of people are using the tops of water bottles too. The braces holding the tanks in place are made from posterboard foam as well.

Swords
The blades were made using thin plywood (which you should seal with a wood sealer if you use it). Posterboard foam would work as well, but it's not as sturdy. The base of the handles were made using wood, and the detailing over the top was made using sintra plastic. I filled in the seams with bondo. You could use craft foam for that as well, but you can't really fill in seams very well if you use it.

Back Piece/Motor/whatever the heck that thing is
The center piece was made using 6 layers of posterboard foam glued together, and then I put air-dry clay and glazing compound over the top. The side pieces were made using sintra plastic and craft foam (you could use posterboard foam in place of sintra though).

Let me know if you have any questions! I'm happy to help c:

D: Oh my god. That's so damn perfekt! Could you please make a tutorial on how you did the harness and the 3d maneuver gear? Or at least give me some tipps? Like what material you used and so on? How long did it take you to make that costume?
That would be so awesome! :3

Belts
For these I just sewed a bunch of strips of vinyl the same width, then pieced them together afterward. The belts themselves stay in place with velcro that attaches to my shirt and pants. I got all the buckles from BuckleGuy.com

Let me know if you have any questions! And apologies for the late reply!

how'd you do the harnesses? i keep messing on on putting my harnesses around my leg on right
Reply
:iconrixari:
Rixari Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The way I put mine together, each leg is a separate set of belts, and they attach to the belt around the waist with velcro (the top set of belts is the same way).
If you're having trouble putting them on, whether you've made them or bought them online, I would either glue them or stitch them in place where they're supposed to overlap so you don't get confused. It might also help to label the insides of the belts so you know which pieces go where (for example, left leg, right leg, which pieces go on the front of your leg, which ones go on the back, etc.)
My belts actually velcro onto my pants and shirt as well so it's very easy to just line everything up where it attaches, so that may be an option for you as well.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck! c:

My mom ended up sewing my jacket and I embroidered the patches, so unfortunately I don't know the best place to buy one.  Dx
Maybe check some shops on etsy, there's a few that look nice and are reasonably priced. c:

I bought this pair off of amazon www.amazon.com/Qupid-PROUD-09-…
The color is perfect, but I wouldn't recommend them unless you're willing to modify them quite a bit. I had to hand-stitch up the back so they'd fit my legs since they're so big!

If you dont mind me asking, what did you do to put the sword boxes on your sides? .A. And what supplies did you use? I was thinking of using foam board for the swords...

I think this is the best way to explain it lol.
Basically there's three attachment points. The leather strap in the back has snaps that go around the main belt at the waist. The clip near the front just clips on to the leg belts (to hold it in place so it doesn't swing around), and the clasp at the front clips on to the belt loop of my pants (although I'm going to be changing it since it shows really bad).

The clip for the leg belts was made using ABS plastic (it's basically like, a money or wallet clip though).

I used plywood for the blades of the swords so I wouldn't have to worry about them getting banged up. Although, most people seem to be using foam board it seems, so it should work fine! c:

Thank you so much!! ;A; You have absolutely no idea how grateful I am! I was going to wait for a little bit until I get the belt system in my hands so I could see what I had to work with first. But this really cleared things up for me!
