New York City area cosplayers

Hey, everyone!

I live in New York City, and my dream is to have a MMPR black cosplay. But I wanted to first see if I could connect with any other Power Ranger cosplayers in the NYC area so I could ask them about what their experiences have been. I feel like if I get a suit and don't know anyone else as well then I won't get a whole lot of use out of it, but if I knew other like-minded people then I would truly get to enjoy cosplaying to it's fullest.

So if you're a NYC cosplayer or you know someone who is, please shoot me a message! I would love to pick your brain about what it's like! Thanks!

I've just about finished another "bucket list" cosplay, the MMPR armored red ranger.

I DIY'ed some pieces including the belt, cuffs, ranger shield, and boots so if there's interest I will post a thread with more info and some of the templates I used/made.

In these photos I still have yet to add the straps under the arms, so the shield is sitting a bit high on my shoulders. But I couldn't resist the photo opportunity.

Does anybody know of any helmet maker that makes an accurate IS Silver helmet? I got one from animi a few years ago and the colors on it are pretty dull, but even when I search for Silver Ranger cosplayers most of the helmets I see are dull as well.

Here's my latest helmet build, it's a custom paint "Fighting Spirit" style Green Ranger. I purchased the raw kit from Rocketpunch Studios who makes cast helmets from his own 3D prints. His design is incredibly accurate from what I have seen compared to other fancast helmets. If you are in the market for a helmet kit I recommend you check him out on social media/etsy (not affiliated, just a happy customer).

I was considering holding out for the Legacy Green Ranger 1:1 prop helmet but this looked so much better.

Here's the raw kit as it comes:
13116394_1072265842816376_6594273706902244521_o by IronJoeT16S, on Flickr

Since his sculpt comes from a 3d print, it is perfectly proportionate and symmetrical. The cast is incredibly clean with no prep work necessary, no need to cut it in half, just prime and paint.

I started by cutting out the visor as I prefer the tinted clear visor to the stunt-style:

I then primer'd the helmet, and painted the main areas silver (mouth and teeth). Once dried I masked them off:

Then I began laying down the custom color I selected, a metallic emerald green:

Bad lighting in this photo so the color looks very washed out:

I went back and forth on closures, but in the end chose to try the magnetic closure. I LOVE it! Never going back to outside cliplocks. (Also in this photo you can see how thick the casting is! Very durable - as soon as I was done painting it I accidentally dropped it, and no damage!)

SO, this is my first real legit post in this thread and I'm scared out of my mind.

Let's start with the first one.
I was able to go to RangerStop this last month ago, and my friend's dad actually gave me & his son the idea of cosplaying as Bulk & Skull from Countdown to Destruction: https://i.imgur.com/3hiHIFl.jpg

I think we pulled it off.

Then comes the big one.
A couple of months before RangerStop, I rummage through Power Rangers Buyers Traders & Sellers and I come across someone selling a ZyuOh-Gorilla cosplay complete with boots, gloves, 4 Zyuohger roleplay toys, 6 DX ZyuOh-Cubes, and he was selling everything as a set for WELL under 1000 dollars around 550 at most. I snagged that so fast, it made my wallet spin. Today was the day I gave it a test fit: https://i.imgur.com/fh7ccX1.jpg

I'm on a bit of a high right now. This is my first legit Power Rangers cosplay and my mind can't process the information. The belt is missing because the seller sold the belt with a Kyoryu-Cyan cosplay/Oops, but I'm getting the belt replaced soon. After posting this on my Twitter, people have suggested a Shapewear shirt & a dancers belt for obvious reasons. I may go for those next chance I get.

There's no need to be scared, Zeltrax. You know you're in a safe zone.

You look good, man. I remember that high too when I first got my Ranger cosplay stuff. I was literally shaking when I first had it in my hands. After idolising the Rangers for most of my life, it was really trippy and surprisingly emotional to have something in my possession!
Great Bulk too by the way!

Thanks, Morgan. My friend's dad was the one who made the entire cosplay for Bulk piece by piece/I just had to supply a belt. He even made a custom pony-tail to put underneath the skull-cap/Can't see it in the shot I have. I even got a picture with Paul Shier & Jason Narvy and both of them loved me & my friend a lot - It's Bulk-&-Skull-Ception! *INCEPTION HORNS*

But yeah, aside from replacing the belt, the shapewear shirt & dancers belt are gonna be the next things I buy before I take this thing out onto any convention floors & I got time too as Morphicon's in 8 months... *Looks at calendar* Sonny Beaches, that soon? Damn.

Also, back onto the ZyuOh-Gorilla cosplay, I put that suit on all by myself. No joke, everyone else was in town while I put the suit on/The back-zippers are a bitch though. Pardon my language, but I got them closed up. I now have a much renewed respect for cosplayers who wear suits like this for hours on end. It gets stuffy in that helmet and even on a cold day while the material of the suit can breathe, you can still get overheated. WOW.

A few quick pics from my 25th birthday party last night: (My 25th birthday was exactly 25 days before PR's 25th Anniversary )









(Please excuse the buckle detaching here. Didn't notice it on time. Originally I was thinking of putting on the Legacy Morpher on the belt, but yeeesh, that thing is heavy!)

Still need to get around doing proper photos with this costume and my Dekaranger uniform.

So, this past weekend, I did my first Con appearance in costume at Aniventure Comic Con 2018 in Bulgaria.

My main reason for going was that I was actually invited to do two presentations on stage, one of which was called "Henshin Hero: A Brief History of Tokusatsu". Lots of people showed up for both and loved them.

While my cosplay stage performance went to hell due to the fact that I kinda froze up and forgot pretty much my entire 1-minute choreography, my belt twisted around and unfastened while I was on stage... so yeah, it looked pretty bad (though I still had fun).

However, people loved the costume and I got lots of neat photos!

I was wearing my Deka Red/SPD Red uniform on Saturday and was MMPR Green Ranger on Sunday:

Halloween 2018

Built 3 more helmets based of Dali Lomo's template. These are v2 and much better than my first attempt. Helmets made by me. Kid's suits made my mother (best grandma ever). Adult suits were custom made.

It has been a while since I posted here.

My ZyuOh-Gorilla cosplay went over great at PMC this year. I had a Coolforce Shirt & shorts underneath my costume to avoid sweating and that worked like a charm. I was able to stay in the suit for 9 hours straight. Personal record in my opinion.

Here's the pics I took when I got a belt from DekaMexican to complete the costume.
https://i.imgur.com/9pAExQj.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/nVUhyyN.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/d2TEPHH.jpg

Now comes probably my most ambitious project to date, aside from interesting commissions - making a cosplay FROM SCRATCH.

I love AkibaRanger so, I wanted to make a cosplay to debut at RangerStop this year. Sadly, moving into the new place took more of a hit on the finances than I thought so, I had to choose either PMC or RangerStop to go to this year. Guess which I picked.

Anyway, I wanted to make my reviewer persona Akiba-Green into a real cosplay because Akiba-Green at this point is just a 3D model in MikuMikuDance. Using what I've learned from a lot of different fabrication channels, this is what I currently came up with.

First, Chest armor.
First Attempt: https://i.imgur.com/WLfaw2T.png
Second & Current version before painting: https://i.imgur.com/Cg7G1Uq.png

I made the gauntlets, upper arm parts, & upper thigh parts NEARLY free-handed/I did have to make templates halfway through all of these: https://i.imgur.com/yEkdyjv.jpg
If you're wondering about gloves, no fear - Got some from Biglots for 10 bucks & contact-cemented them into the gauntlets for an easier time putting the whole thing on: https://i.imgur.com/3S1D1hy.png
Painted the "clear-center" Krylon Shimmer Metallic Green.

Then came the scariest part of this whole thing - THE HELMET. I used a base template from Dustin Beadle to make it and it fit PERFECTLY on my head... without my glasses on. Yeah, I can't see far away without my glasses so I had to put a triangle wedge in the back of the helmet to widen it & allow me to put the helmet on while I also had my glasses on for pictures. Then came the spikes on the helmet & the visor. The AkibaRanger helmets have somewhat exaggerated features on them so I made Akiba-Green the same way - spiked hair & a BIG visor styled after Kamina's shades from Gurren Lagann: https://i.imgur.com/zSZOfVY.png

I also had to use a LOT of Barge Contact Cement to keep a lot of the stuff attached, especially the head spikes/Covered the ends with craft foam. I painted the main helmet with 3 layers of Plasti-Dip/Before which I applied to seal the seal of some of the parts, then painted the helmet Spring-Green from Rustoleum. The mouth was hand-painted with Krylon Chrome Silver & Folk-Art Metallic Silver while the visor trim was spray-painted gold & I hand-painted the visor/a good portion of this cosplay is hand-painted BTW.

PS: Excuse the awkwardness of the pose I was in while testing the helmet as I was kinda working on a meme featuring my "glitched out" suit/I don't have a body suit yet & can't get a bigger size until after Christmas as the last 2 tries I got in town don't fit me enough AND one of the zippers broke on the second body suit I tried when I bought it.

Lastly until I can buy the 2XL body suit & the boots was the Z-Cune in gun mode. The reason for this? I ain't lugging the toy around at cons as it's heavy & the electronics don't work anymore/Thank god I recorded the thing's audio clips when I did.
Here's the first base of it, made with a closet rod, foam, wood & PVC pipe: https://i.imgur.com/kcHEPty.jpg
Final version with me holding it: https://i.imgur.com/S83mItv.png

Apologies for the HUGE post. I'm just kinda excited for nearly completing this cosplay as it's my first one & I still got a few things to learn. Feedback is appreciated it, and I'm working on some mods to it as the velcro isn't secure ENOUGH for my liking so I'm using luggage clips to helmet with that.
