Origami Cyclone HERO SUIT by AmenoKitarou Origami Cyclone HERO SUIT by AmenoKitarou
Tiger and Bunny - Origami Cyclone, Hero Suit cosplay

Hellloooooo!!!! Long time no post. I am still alive!

Costume handmade and worn: :iconamenokitarou:
Photo: :iconpireze:

No photoshopping was done here (except the labels :P)


...yes. This is a costume. And I made it over 6 months.
I made and wore this costume for the Madman National Cosplay Championship Grand Finals in Brisbane 2013, and recieved second place!

My progress pictures can be seen on facebook:

My interview and performance can be scene here:

This is a test photoshoot I did before flying to Brisbane so I can label and show off all its features. Also I wanted to try to look like a figurine... :XD:
I had a few missing parts and wore a couple of pieces incorrectly in these photos. But they helped me learn how to wear it properly on the day.
I've had an amazing year this year. Winning 2nd place was a great honor!! :)

Please enjoy the picture. I will update this picture with all the correct details, and also more shots to come soon :D
Feel free to ask about any part of the costume making process!

This is a great choice for you to cosplay! like you have his body into all that armour! looks very good, and you managed to have such freedom in movement, awesome skit!
The most difficult part as I would see, was  it maintaining all the right proportions as the original?
 Also,the golden stripes to your pants,how are they made/attached?

Thanks so much!
The most difficult part was definitely making everything in correct proportion and still being able to move!
The gold strips on the pants are leather covered foam strips, sewn onto the pants.
