Falco Cosplay Progress

So I've been once again struck with the inspiration that is cosplay.  I'm completely obsessed with my current project, Falco Lombardi, from Star Fox fame.  If you're not familiar with the Star Fox series then you've probably seen him in Smash Bros.

Mostly I've been working on the mask I'm going to use for the head.  I'm taking a decorative approach with this costume, as working that way just seems to interest me more.


I've worked on it more since, and it's closer to finished!  More photos will be on there way as I get closer to the finish line.  I also decided to give the blaster/pistol a go tonight.  With cardboard, foam, straws, and lots and lots of hot glue this is the result:

I'm pretty satisfied with how it's turned out.  I'm not too experienced with using cardboard to build things, but it seems to be fairly simple to grasp.  Hopefully with a paint job it'll look even better!
