My very own Optimus Prime cosplay.


Recommended Posts

Any Transformers fans here? 

This is my Optimus Prime cosplay I made for myself out of cardboard. I started working on it since November 2023. I used cardboard, aluminum foil, red and blue paint even made the decals from the original toy from the 1980s on MS Paint and I liked how the decals came out, the decals I recreated on Paint really looked how the decals looked you had to insert on the original Optimus Prime figure or Battle Convoy. (If you are familiar of how the original Transformers toys originated from the Diaclone Toyline from Takara Tomy same for Microchange.) I worked so hard on this, one problem is that tried to put on the pauldrons I made out of cardboard and used paper towel holders for the smoke stacks but I don't know how to find a way to put them on my arms with the material I have at my house. 

Anyways, I am so proud of creating this cosplay, I even made videos showing off my home-made Optimus Prime cosplay on TikTok LOL! Yes, I made TikTok videos of me in cosplay, and making this Optimus Prime cosplay and showing it to my TikTok audience is a huge step up of my time cosplaying on this platform. And I will be wearing this at Fanimecon 2024 at the masquerade.

I am not a huge Transformers fan, I do like some of the movies though, but despite that the cosplay is amazing! Especially since you made it yourself. That's a lot of creativity that seems to have went into it ^^ Looks like you put a lot of time into it and making sure the details were right, bet people will love it at the con.

Nice. Do you do a lot of Cosplay? Do you usually create your own cosplay outfits?

This looks very great. When you create your cosplays do you often create them yourself from items from home or is that the first time you have made a cosplay yourself?
