How would someone show their love for their child? By making to be their favorite super fighting robot! That’s how!
Lately we’ve been playing Megaman on the Nes Emulator, just to share my kids the love I got for the Franchise and they did loved it too. I’ve also shown them some Fast run play of Megaman Powered Up on Youtube and they’ve been requesting to watch it ever since. Even watched that animated US Megaman (with bulk muscles). And since their Halloween Party at School is approaching, we asked them what character they would like. And they answered Megaman!
So the wife and me went to Divisoria on a weekend to look for costumes or materials we can use to make the costume. I was thinking of making it simple, a plain shirt, a helmet and a blaster. But the wife wanted to go “All In”. Kinareer ng Lola mo! We ended up buying Yards of cloth, some puzzle mat and a soldiers. Helmet.
She saw a instructable link by craineum. That pretty much her peg but we don’t have the budget and skill to do what the craineum did but we improvise. We stuffed the Helmet with Papermache. My wife did the shape of both helmet. I did the ears fron soda cans. And most of the armor are from puzzle mat. She did the stitching of the cloth to the armors, I helped a little, I’m no Good in stitching. Wowa (the kid’s granmother) did the long-sleeve and the pants. Everything looks awesome. It was a tiring week. We finished the whole thing in one week, with our day job and rest. The Light on the blaster, I was helped by Ninong Royce.
The kids love their costumes, Lakan even kissed his helmet when it finished. Makisig always asking to wear everything while we were testing the fit on him, he’s really enthusiastic. They looked different from the kids at their school, They looked awesome and very unique. The Won most original costume, the kids were very proud, even telling their teacher how we made their costumes.
We’ll try to enter them on some cosplay event so they can enjoy their suit.
What I like about Halloween Trick or Treat are the candies! The kids have colds and cough so we don’t give them too much sweets. So me and the wife separated the treats we like and the treats we will give to the province. Then I saw a “Nougat” like finding a gem. SCORE!!!
