Hi All,

First I would like to apologize for may bad english. I am Indonesian.. ^^

Me and my son have been cosplayed as Ichigo and Nigo for more than two years.

My son is the youngest kamen rider cosplayer in Indonesia. He was started cosplayed as Nigo when he was 5. And since my son grew up a little bit (he is 7 now), his Nigo costume is getting too small so I have to make another costumes for us. I am still working on our second costumes, Glaive and Blade.

Most of the cosplayers in my country are making their helmets out of a paper mache or polycarbon sheets (it's a material you could find on your mouse pads) while I am making them using sawdust-wooden glue mixture as taught by a friend from philipine.

The armors are mostly made of polycarbon sheet also since they are light-weight and quite flexible.

Of course there are helmets and armors made of fiberglass and resin on the market, but they are too expensive... :P

I made this thread with the hope that we could share any tips and tricks to make our home made kamen rider costumes looks a little bit better.

here are some of our double rider pics:

I'm gonna be attempting to do Kamen Rider Kiva Emperor Form... which no doubt probably one of the hardest to make, oh what kind of fun awaits me lol.

Oh and i've done Decade already, not as good as i wanted it to be, but good enough to be completed around 18 days

Those are very impressive! I would love to do a Rider cosplay someday, but I am terrible when it comes to anything that is not fabric.

For those that arent aware there are Kamen Rider pepakura's out now it would help and be easier to create some of these cosplays.

Same here... the project have been going for more than a year and they are not finished yet.
I need to speed them up... the blade armor that I am making for my son is not finished yet... but it's already too small so I need to make a new one... T_T

Well pepakura files might help you out on this as it takes the hard part almost of the sculpting out of the way... you may still need to add a little detail here or there but nothing major like the overall sculpt and what not..:burger:

Yep... it'e easy to make a sculpt from sawdust & glue... the hardest thing is you need to put a layer of automobile putty on top of it and sandpaper it to make it smooth....

The problem that I have that i have to do it after I got back from the office... and most of the times I have already too tired... and too lazy... he3x

I have the fiberglass helmet of Kamen Rider 2. I am trying to get reference pics. Is the outfit black with white/silver stripes with white/silver boots, or is it green stripes with green boots?
Also, the chestplate, how do you construct it?
Belt looks complicated too. Any ideas?

which version of Nigo do you have? The classic one or the re-make one (the first & the next)?

depending on your version, there are several color variations that kamen rider nigo uses..

for the belt, I've made mine and my son using polycarbon sheets.. the fan was taken from old CPU power supply and processor's fan (for my son)..^^

sorry I don't have the tutorial, I have some pictures of them during the making that I have submitted on my Multiply album but it was mixed with other pics. Feel free to look at them at http://d2sarwono.multiply.com/photos/album/6/Kurang_Kerjaan

Yes it is glaive.... why glaive??? My actual plan is to make a villain vs hero costume for us.. the choices are: Ryuki vs Ryuga, Kabuto vs Dark Kabuto or Den-O vs Nega Den-O... but we could not come to a decision since we both want to be the villain.. :P
So I propose Blade vs Glaive to my son and he agreed to become Blade since he hates Glaive design... he hated the big head...he3x

07-11-2010, 09:09 PM
if you're asking me, i made it out of 6mm Craft Foam for the base and 2mm Craft Foam for details and the like...

here's an update on my armor... i've finished it a couple of weeks ago, but not in time for AX...

I posted this ages ago, but i thought i might repost it here since i originally got no replies

Something I really wanna do someday is cosplay as a kamen rider, but making a kamen rider costume would probably be really hard, does anyone have any sugestions/advice/tutorials/etc on how to make a good kamen rider cosplay?
the kamen riders i'd most want to cosplay are
Kamen Rider Den-O Rod Form (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_jUm1aaWSreo/RcFPPondAwI/AAAAAAAAAF0/LXsYeKlxgWE/s400/blogpics0260.jpg)
Kamen Rider New Den-O Strike Form (http://www.toyngame.com/image/bm_deno/01)
Kamen Rider Kiva Kiva Form (http://i3.ytimg.com/i/Zx_6NjJiC-49TZq7P82kvw/1.jpg)

So yeah, any advice on making any of those costumes would be great, currently i have no idea how to make any of them, so advice on materials, construction etc i wanna know as much as possible before i even think about making a kamen rider costume

hey all,

not really posted on here but am a huge cosplayer from the uk cosplay ranger / rider group Officialukrangers.com

I know a few ways to make rider armour quite cheaply out of foam, shiney 4 way stretch material and alot of time.

I've made for a firnd almost half a kamen rider skull chest armour (although once tryed on it looks massive due tothe type of foam I used)

If anyone wants to collabarate on making stuff as in combining plans to make the armours and any tricks to compleating tricky areas.

Sometime in the new year I'll be taking on the soewhat easier task of constructing Tatoba combo.

all the best and talk to you all in the new year.
