I made a Fallout 3 cosplay, complete with PipBoy 3000!
In March/April 2016, I put together a Fallout 3 cosplay, for which I made my own PipBoy 3000 out of a metal can and layers of craft foam. I wore this cosplay (complete with a bottle of Cola) to Ravencon in April of 2016.
Parts of this were rushed, with my typical attitude of “enough procrastination, let’s just do this already!” Though, from even a distance of a few feet, the fact that it is not extremely clean work is far less noticeable, even so much that a dozen or so admirers approached me to ask questions like:
- “Is that the pre-order model?”
- “Did you 3d-print that yourself?”
- “Where did you buy that?”
So, in spite of my overly-critical view of my own work, I am super proud of this and enjoyed the welcoming reception from my peers.
