Pacific Rim Drive Suits, Quote Wanted
Views Date Posted
1331 Mon October 14, 2013
Looking for: I am interested in having a black male and female drive suit (similar to mako's and raleigh's) commissioned for Dragon Con 2014 (or Katsucon in Feb 2014 if it gets done early). I currently live in Northern Virginia and willing to travel to MD and DC if it helps. Ideally I'd want something lightweight. The suit reminds me of the suits from the anime Gantz if anyone is familiar. I saw this costume on deviantart linked below. The costume doesn't have to be the same materials used in the movie. I would like something of good quality and different materials that give the same look but cut costs similar to what's seen below. I'm not looking to spend 3 and 4 thousand dollars. If I like the costume, I will be looking to get a male suit commissioned for my husband.


Price Quotes welcomed please. I would need a ballpark total price for the costume (materials and labor costs included) so I can see if I can afford you. Per hour costs, material, etc doesn't really help because I have a budget and would not be able to do anything if you went over a certain price since there was no ball park given and one was pricing as they went.


Thank You.

Edit: The pacific rim cosplayer got back to me. She said she used air foam, grecco (what's that?) and paint.
