I'm completely impressed by this :)

Goodness.. It's great! :)
Can you please inform me on how to actually put this together? I'm hoping to cosplay as a Big Sister for AnimeFest in Dallas this year while my boyfriend goes as Subject Delta and my little sister as (you guessed it) a Little Sister.

If it isn't too much trouble, do you think you could help me with this project? Again, wonderful job! :D

There's no hope for me making this.(mostly bcoz I'm lazy but even if I wasn't i know it would just turn out crap) Would you ever consider selling it???
Riddle1 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012
I don't have all the original pieces, but I do have the molds for almost all the hardward (head, collar, chest, shoulders), and could do casts for me. If you are interested, email

Is it wrong that I want to put a little sister in your basket here? Haha.

Great job, you guys. This looks simply amazing and to be able to have it finished in such a short time is simply astounding! I love each of the details from the textures on the different parts to the ribbons on the basket. by the by, that needle scares me. o.o;;
EbonyLunar Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2011
Oh, by the way. Is there any way you could direct me toward a step-by-step to make this? ^^'
As much as I would love to go with the old 'trial and error' method, I really cannot afford to waste the time, money, and materials. I will be sure to check out the above links at least.
Riddle1 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2011
We didn't really have time to document each process step by step.
But if you check out the photos on my facebook book page, they are basically put in order and it can help you get an idea of how to do it.

EbonyLunar Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2011
Awesome! Thank you so much!
EbonyLunar Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2011
10 days? Wow! This looks fantastic! I would like to try constructing my own Big Sister costume for Halloween and future events, so its extremely fortunate that I found this. Keep up the good work.

Beyond phenominal, I'm floored by how intricate these works are. I'm impressed and jealous in just about equal parts.

i am getting chills looking at this costume. The amount of skill that has been put into this is astounding. As an amateur prop maker, i am simultaneously jealous and inspired.

Rikki I've been a fan of your since I first saw you as Dark Mary Marvel but I have to say that this is simply the most amazing cosplay I've seen in a long long time you and your team have really shone a bright star with this one.

!! congrats !!

Amazing work! O___O
AkikoKaido Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011
You did an amazing job! You and your team are my inspiration for my Big Ssiter cosplay!
Riddle1 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011
I can't wait to see it!
The project overall wasn't too tough, it was just a tight time line! YOu can do it!
AkikoKaido Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2011
What did you use to make the oxygen tank, and the helmet? And how in the world did you figure out the legs? lol
Riddle1 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2011
You can see behind the scene photos on my facebook page

The Helmet was mostly sculpted and molded a ball for the basic shape.
The Tank was a concrete mixing tube.

Duncan, who did the legs just made them from scratch, it was pretty amazing:)
AkikoKaido Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2011
Wow! That was absolutly awesome! So, for the helmet, you used plaster of paris? and about how heavy is a concrete tube? Sorry for all of the questions, but I am just so intrigued by the amount of details you and your team put into this!
Riddle1 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2011
I just did the mold in Ultracal, then we did a fiberglass cast.
The tube ended up being a little heavier then we liked because the rings went from being Foam to MDF do to a mistake and we ran out of time, I think it was like 10-15lbs.

You guys all did a wonderful job. That must be quite a feat to actually wear it without toppling over!
Aerisonus Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Amazing! Wonderful details. Wow. I'm envious every time I see this costume. Really stupendous! I'm making a Big Sister costume of my own and seeing yours is really an inspiration. I doubt I'll be able to compare to the amazing quality of your work, though. Bravo!

I would pay good money for a costume like that...
*whispers* ....How much?...
But seriously I would die for one of these amazing suits.
Riddle1 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2010
We could only supply the sculpted pieces, but I could also put you in contact with the person who did the leather. I
