This Cosplayer Made Herself Into Pacific Rim’s Gipsy Danger, Will Kill All Kaiju For Her Family


Nona Neon Cosplay, I bow to your greatness. Especially considering you incorporated a vegetable strainer into your Pacific Rim cosplay. 

She writes:

So here, finally, is the finished product after months and months of grueling work. A tribute to the favorite film my eyeballs have ever seen, is Gipsy Danger from Pacific Rim! Starting construction on this was the most ambitious decision i have made. Going into it with absolute ZERO armor building knowledge and juggling school, a job, a boyfriend, and a MegaCon deadline. Needless to say the odds were against me. However, after lots of trial and error Gipsy was finally completed. I am very critical of my work and it’s rare that i say this. But this is one outfit i am very proud of.

Construction Time: 6 months
Constructed of: varying thickness’s of EVA craft foam, recycled household items, vegetable strainer, acrylic visor
Cost: Approx $175

The Kaiju don’t stand a chance.
