I’m not a fan of Warhammer 40,000 myself, but this Blood Angels Space Marine costume looks so awesome, I want to check it out and see what I have been missing. Youtuber Pilerud scratch built this Warhammer 40K Space Marine Blood Angel Tactical Sergeant, 7th company, 9th squad, costume himself.
He obviously loves Warhammer, having devoted 400 hours over 10 months to making this badass costume. The completed outfit weighs 25kg (~55 pounds) and stands about 215 cm tall (~7 feet). I am about 183 cm without armor. He used foam and hot glue and as well as other tricks to make it look more like the miniatures. Mech sounds are provided by ThinkGeek’s awesome little Mega Stomp Panic box. Check it out in action in the video below:
The cost? About €2500 (~$3206 USD) I love how everything moves as he is walking around. It’s all very fluid. Nice job!
