Attack on Titan - Hope of Humanity by Rixari Attack on Titan - Hope of Humanity by Rixari
This is honestly my favorite shot my brother got, since it really shows off all the details in the back. I hate this costume since all the interesting stuff is in the back where no one sees it. D':

I'm happy to share how I made my props, I'm just too lazy to type it all out at once lol.

woooops forgot to title omg

what did you use for the straps on the legs, suspenders, and the back straps?.. also, did you use transfer printer paper for the emblems?...

For the harness system I used vinyl. I just kinda sewed a bunch of long strips at first and then pieced it together. I've seen people just buy a bunch of matching belts and making them that way, but I don't know how well they'll sew.
I actually embroidered the emblems by hand, but they make inkjet iron-on fabric which may work also. Transfer paper would work too, but might not be as resilient.

For the props (just copy/pasting this lol)

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 the details instead, but you can't really fill in seams very well if you use it (if that's an issue for you).

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 rotor-looking 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 other questions. AoT's a tough costume to make, especially last minute, so don't fret if you don't have time for the 3dmg. I worked 2 months on my props to have them ready for a con and still didn't have everything quite figured out lol.
Good luck with everything! C':

for the harness system, my mom suggested black elastic strips.

I don't think I'd have time to do that for the emblems.. but i'll probably do that in the future.


I will have to do the props later, haha. I'm fin with just a uniform for now. :3

very well done on it tho. it's amazing!

I'm not someone who likes cosplay but this shot is really impressive. And the fact that you made everything yourself is just amazing. How did you make it??

Thank you!
The props were made using different types of foam and plastic, and the base of the swords were made using wood. c:
