Halloween Costume

I've been working on another side project. It ended up gobbling up all my time and I didn't quite make my deadline.



This is robot guardian. If he looks familiar, it's because he's my closest interpretation of the robot featured in Hayao Miyazaki's Castle in the Sky.


While I didn't get a chance to paint him before Halloween (nor fit the head puppet gear, arm control sticks, and head camera) I still won two prizes. One at a pub Halloween party. The other at work. They made a competition category "Oh my God" just for me!

Just to give you a few specs:

about 40 hours work, hundreds of rivets, two bruises, five cuts on my hands and one sizable gash, 7m sq. corrugated plastic, 4m sq. foam, 5m sq. lining paper.


one battery pack, two fans, tablet with camera to see the outside world

Once I find the time, I'll finish him and upload a time lapse of the construction. Maybe I'll even wear him around town for the laugh!
