Our most recent custom orders came from some American soldiers stationed all the way in Afghanistan. They wanted some custom Gears of War costumes from Gears 3. We’ve done a lot of custom work, but this is our first gears of war costume and we wanted to let our loyal fans follow along to see what goes into every custom cosplay order.
We start with as many photos of the character as possible. Then we draw a c basic draft of the items that we’ll be fabricating. This way, we can work off of drawings with clearly defined lines and boundaries. This makes getting every little detail right a lot easier.
After that we begin production. We start the fabrication process by determining the best materials to use. In the case of Clay Carmine from Gears of War, we’re going with aluminum and polymer over a moldable vest.
