Destiny - Brave New World by Argnarock Destiny - Brave New World by Argnarock
Cosplayers:

Hunter: Me

Warlock: :iconxenekosx:

Photographer: :iconstillreflection:

So first and foremost, the new game Bungie is working on, Destiny, looks absolutely friggin fantastic! I can't wait to get my hands on it. In fact, me and my fiance were so excited in the wake of the E3 footage, we decided we had to cosplay it, ASAP. So we got it done just in time for Metrocon 2013 down in Tampa, and needless to say we had a blasty-blast.

So in this picture we have my Hunter Cosplay and :iconxenekosx: 's Warlock cosplay, complete with props. The LMG :iconxenekosx: is holding is a legendary weapon within the game, and it's apparently called "Super Good Advice". My pistol isn't quite as fancy, I just built it to look like it was a Destiny hand cannon, but I've been lovingly referring to it as "Sassafrass". I'll have dedicated submissions for both of these guns.

Also, many thanks to our photographer, :iconstillreflection: , for taking the time to do this shoot with us. It was a blast, and I've loved the shots I've seen so far!

:3 I might have to see if my sis, Rhi, and her bf, Jon, has met you. They're kinda into Star Wars and been doing cosplays. And seeing your costumes would really grab at least Jon.

It is indeed, good eye! It needs a bit more modding to make it less recognizable as a nerf, but we did what we could with the time we had.

If you want a cheap way to make guns that look very convincing and realistic, check out Dafrontlinetrooper on youtube.  I believe he has a deviantart profile under the name cpcody or something like that.  He makes very good guns and swords out of foam.  He says that they usually cost about $10-20USD to make. Just a suggestion.  Hope you guys make more armour cosplays.  Any advice you can give me on planning and building this?

I've seen his stuff, that guy is boss! I saw the binary rifle he just made and made a mess of myself. I'll have to give his method a try here soon... I have a couple random swords I want from things I don't really want to cosplay, maybe I'll try making one of those his way. 

And OHHH YES, we plan on doing more armor! Some things you might see from me in the future include several sets of Spartan and Mass Effect armor, as well as a few more mandos farther into the future...oh, and I'm doing the Warlock from the Destiny E3 footage soon.

And by this, do you mean a Hunter or Warlock? I've had a lot of people ask me that, I may just put a link tot he WIP thread I made in the description... or I might do a tutorial post about it. We'll see.

I am actually currently making a m55 argus based on his method.  Also I am currently making plans for n7 armour from mass effect 2.

Nice. I'm planning on doing an N7 slayer in the near future, it's my favorite multiplayer class. Not that big a fan of the argus myself, I prefer the vindicator when it comes to assault rifles.

It is actually a toss up between a titan and a hunter.  My sewing skills are quite rusty and I have no idea how I would make the hunter cloak anyway.  

Oh well, also on a side note, the mattock is the best rifle in the game!  I fully upgraded mine like two missions after I got it.

Sorry, didn't get your earlier comment about the gun.  My computer can be stupid.

Thanks so much! I do have some WIP shots I might upload here soon,a nd I do have an entire WIP thread on the MMCC site that I might share the link to.

But to answer your question, I used a welding mask and a paintball mask for the hunter headgear, modded that stuff up to look right. I used EVA foam for the hunter chest piece base, some pvc sheet for the actual hard armor plates, and craft foam for the belts coming off of it. I used more EVA foam for the shoulders and ab piece, and the flight suit is the same one I use for my Mandalorian cosplay.

The Warlock was mostly soft parts built from scratch by my fiance. The helmet was a frieking ordeal, it used to be an Iron Man mask for airsoft before we did unspeakable things to it to get it looking like what it does now. The warlock armor plates are mostly made out of PVC sheet as well.

Hmm.... Wouldn't have have thought to use a welding mask.  What did you make "super good advice"out of?

We actually modded the crap out of a Nerf Longshot, since it already had pretty much a perfect silhouette.
