Megatron Cosplay by DoubleBackstitchArts Megatron Cosplay by DoubleBackstitchArts
Megatron cosplay built from monkeyrum's model and debuted at Kitsune Kon 2011
It was made of printed cardstock paper, held together with regular elmer's glue, and backed with great stuff foam.
It didn't last long, but it is still the best looking rig I've yet to make.

Awesome job. Just a thought, but have you considered using coroplast for a more durable material than paper? It's easy to work with and is fairly durable.

Haha, this rig is pretty old, mate. It was my first convention and my first cosplay. Since this one I've worked with fiberglass, foamboard, plastics, and even steel. I was building a full foamboard suit, but life kind of happened so I ended up having to put my cosplays and conventions on hold for... well, it's been years now. I've worked with coroplast some, but I just don't jive with it. I think a lot about how I'd do it again if I was going to rebuild, and I'd love to make the whole thing out of sheet steel, riveted and welded together. Because I'm very apparently insane. But it'd be a hell of a Megatron. Making it transformable, that's the next version past that one XD
