Lucario Costume by ZeroSune Lucario Costume by ZeroSune
My first costume. I only recently got into cosplaying and the whole anime convention scene, but I have found that I quite enjoy it. So, I decided to make a cosplay. And I chose Lucario. Quite the challenge for a first-time costumer, but I think I pulled it off nicely. It was in progress for over a year, but took a solid month's worth of work and then some to complete. It debuted at Naka-Kon, where it was a huge hit. A few more pictures can be seen here: [link] I loved getting to show off my hard work, though having to wear it three days in a row was a bit tiresome. Of course the weekend of the con itself had to be the warmest weekend with snow and such happening all the time that the con ISN'T. Oh well, I survived and had a blast. Anyway, enjoy!

Also, if enough people were to be interested, I might end up posting some of my developmental pictures. Maybe.

EDIT: A bit of exciting news about this costume: I ended up winning 'Best In Show' with it at Anime St. Louis 2011!

That looks amazing!!! How did you make the costume? Especially the upper legs since they are much bigger. I wanna make a big mascot suit myself and I need to have a big round belly haha

Why thank you! It was just a lot of hard work and experimentation to get it all right.
The legs are just a dual-layered piece with some filler between the layers, but they've got attachments that hook up to the upper half for support and stuff, since they're kinda heavy.

How did you make the tail stand up?

Why thank you!

It's standing up because of a support rig that I built into it. Attached on my back and ran all the way through the tail to give it lift and bounce.

Sweet Lucario fursuit! The head is dead on, and I love what you did with the legs. Was it hard to move in it?

ZeroSune Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
Not at all! The only issue with it was it getting hot at times. Other than that, it was very maneuverable and quite easy to manage on my own.

ZeroSune Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011
Roughly. I started it towards the end of one year, but then hardly touched it until about the same time the following year. So, while I was still technically working on it over that year, it wasn't serious progress.

Thanks. I actually think I have my next one picked out. I've got a ridiculously long list of ideas for future endeavors, but I think I finally narrowed it down to the one I'm going to tackle next.
