Megaman Zero 3
" Ware wa Meshia Nari! HAHAHAHA!
"I am the Messiah! HAHAHAHA!
(Note: The same person that voices Grimmjow voices Omega. I was wondering why his voice seemed so familiar and why I fangasmed over his voice)
I personally like the Megaman X art style better than the Megaman Zero style, but the MMZ style is MUCH easier to cosplay from.
Cannonball is my second favorite theme song of all of the X through Zero games. The first of course belongs to "X vs Zero" by leaps and bounds.
Walking around the con, only one person actually called me Omega; everyone else just called me Zero. After a couple hours I just gave in and agreed to be called Zero (it's half correct anyway). I guess it's to be expected, since not a whole lot of people have actually played through the Zero series games.
Unfortunately, I don't have any other shots of Omega (well, I'm a baddie and lost all the photography cards; no pockets ya know). But I REALLY enjoyed cosplaying Omega; one of the few times I go around scowling at everything.
I rushed through most of the costume trying to make the deadline for the con. It took about 2 weeks to finish (MMX style Zero took a month), so I skimped on some sanding details.
The helmet was made from scratch using a combination of upholestry foam, plaster filler, craft foam, Styrene, and fiberglass. I accidentally dropped the helmet while the fiberglass was curing, so the left side is a little messed up. I ran out of time and couldn't sand down the mistake, so I left it like that. The blue crystal was supposed to be made out of acrylic and light up, but the special blue acrylic didn't come in time (I have the LED made and ready for it too...).
The arms are made of the same thing as the helmet, but I had enough time to sand the plaster into the correct shape. The legs were made exclusively out of upholstery foam, insulation foam and fiberglass. The ankle rings is made out of insulation foam and fiberglass, but I skipped 2 sanding stages.
The Zero Thong and holsters(?) are made of rubber sheeting.
The vest/shirt was sewed out of pleather (god, it gets hot in the sun). The boots were my favorite thing to work on. I used my old steel toed work boots that I covered in pleather. The black parts of the boots were sewed with pleather, 1 inch and 2 inch upholestry foam.
The sword was cut from a 1/8inch red acrylic sheet, which was VERY hard to cut without any scrapings, chips, or shattering. In fact, my O-Saber has a large chip on one of the edges. The O-Buster gun (which you can't see well) is made out of wood, modeling clay, and foamcore. The wig was lightly layered to give it the "Zero" look.
Overall, I skipped 2 sanding steps during the fiberglass curing. /fail
I plan on wearing (copy/normal) Zero at Sakuracon, but with the cloak from MMZ2.
Omega Zero, and Zero belong to Capcom.
Megaman Zero belongs to Capcom and Inti Creates.
Edit: Lawl at my make-up. I was on a giant rush to the con and did terrible eye lining. I wanted to have an overall dark look since I'm cosplaying the evil Zero. And this is the first time I'm stuffing (Zero has a package *cough*).
