Otachi - Dragon*con 2014

Made and modeled by me (FB)

"Movement in the breach… Category 4…"

Aquarium night at Dragon*con was unbelievable. Otachi was fun to wear during the day, and the Pacific Rim meetup was amazing, but I swear once it got dark out it hit a whole other level of epic kaiju destruction awesome. I felt like I was freaking becoming Otachi, surrounded by all the nighttime marine biospheres - the lights looked sooo cool in the exhibits!! And of course any chance to shoot with Soulfire (a huge Pacific Rim fan) is going to produce incredible work. I feel like Otachi is emerging from the breach in these photos, and she’s about to destroy Hong Kong (or Atlanta). Do your worst, PPDC…

While I consider myself a pretty experienced sewer, I had absolutely never worked with craft foam outside of simple, teensy props. I’m writing up a big breakdown of exactly how I made the spinal column and tail, but for now I’ll just say it was a huge endeavor! There are 162 individual foam pieces in the spine/tail, and 32 LEDs. Phew! Now where’s a Gipsy Danger I can drag into the stratosphere??

Otachi - Dragon*con 2014

I’m starting to get back some amazing photos from Dragon*con! This cosplay was such a labor of love for me. Pacific Rim has become one of my all time favorite movies, and I knew I had to cosplay something challenging from it that accurately reflected my obsession. I’m so happy with how my favorite kaiju turned out!!

My idea for the bodice design was that the detailing along the top would mimic the venom sac that Otachi uses to regurgitate acid on her foes, and teeth would line the collar to represent the jaw. The necklace I made was inspired by her biolminescent tongue sensor. Scales were painted on, and I used rhinestones on the bodice to incorporate the swirly stomach designs that you can see in some shots. The bodice is fully lined (with bubble print fabric!) and boned, and I am wearing a corset I made myself underneath. Designing how I could make a killer city-destroying kaiju into a high fashion dress with 2,000+ rhinestones was SO MUCH FUN.
