Bionicle Cosplay

Has anyone here ever or in recent years done any Bionicle cosplay?
If so, what were your challanges with making the costumes and how did it pan out? (If you have images, share them if you want.)

I myself want to make a somewhat good looking Takanuva costume, but I’d need to get to that first…

There was one guy at brickfair 2019 who cosplayed as Vezon

I asked for his social media, as I was ecstatic to see a bionicle cosplayer face-to-face, but the only account he mentioned was his BZP account “Toa Zaz(?)”

My girlfriend and I want to make some Matau and Nokama costumes someday, but it’s the last thing on our minds atm in the wonderful year of 2020

There are some results if you google it, seems like the few cosplayers went for cardboard builds or some manner of heat shaped foam, with varying degrees of success

That guy behind him looks generally unimpressed.
He obviously didn’t answer any of his one-hundred and ten questions, or his followups. :stuck_out_tongue:

I was thinking about making a toa metru costume and I had some ideas on how to make it but it would be pretty hard since I have never made an entire suit/costume, I usually make only props and helmets. If I do make it I will probably post something on my YouTube channel.

Oh, and I just remembered an old mask I made

Just don’t bring it into contact with any red axles or blue pins, it would likely explode :stuck_out_tongue:

I haven’t done it in the past but I am working on a Toa Matoro Mahri costume for my first Comic Con, currently working on trying to figure out a way to make the Mask of Life light up.

maybe a combination of semi transparent material and led strips?

I have no experience at all

I made an Ahvokii out of paper mache for Halloween around 2005, but that’s been gone for a decade. I could probably 3d print one nowadays, I’ll look into it
