IPC Cosplay, Comicon and Popcon

Recommended Posts

Hello, just starting off, I played on the server for months, on and off. Many people may not know me well, but I play the IPC Opamator. Recently I went to Indiana Comicon in Indianapolis, last month. It was fun, first ever Comicon. I have been thinking of a new costume idea for IndiePopcon. I came up with the brilliant idea, to turn Opamator into a physical being! I have actually been ordering and working on the costume, nearing late April and now in May. I have two months, till the costume has to be ready. July 7th is IndiePopcon.

The costume project will take my maybe $400 to build. I will be making a functional Computer head, out of a old CRT that fits me rather well. This costume will be my one and only costume, for the rest of my life.

Some pictures of my current stuff I have bought and worked on.

Currently I have been working on the Taser rifle, CRT head, and the outfit itself, normally what Opamator wears.

Let me know what you think of this costume project, add ideas as well if you want.

Dude, I'd love to see your take on your ICP and wish you the best of luck.

Plus I've seen Op on the server a few times and think he's pretty cool.

ALL RIGHT, I finished the costume yesterday for IndyPopCon Today! I already went on a three hour drive to Indianapolis to go to Pop Con and now Im back. I had butt loads of people ask for pictures of me. The number one question was, "How do you see?" A camera. Anyways, others commented, I should be a costume designer and I would win a costume contest if there was one. A couple of the booth staff people said I was probably the NUMBER ONE best costume there. SOOO HERE IT IS, THE COSTUME YOU ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!!




If there are any photos I find from IndyPopCon of me, Ill find them and upload them here. I will also upload pictures anytime I wear the costume to an event.

Thank you all for your support.
