Here’s cosplayer Nona Neon with her badass Gipsy Danger costume. As you can see Nona adapted the hunky form of Pacific Rim’s lead mecha to suit her body. She made the suit out of EVA foam plus various household objects, including a strainer for the chest piece.
Nona said she based the EVA foam parts on papercraft templates posted by members of the prop maker community The 405th Infantry Division, modifying them as needed. She also made a replica of Gipsy Danger’s chain sword. It took her a total of six months, a lot of trial and error, and about $175 (USD) to finish the costume.
