Attack on Titan Cosplay Prop 3D Maneuver Gear Anime Version with Tutorial

Finally we’ve got the Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) three dimensional maneuver gear, (also called Vertical Maneuvering Equipment ) So excited~! o(≧v≦)o~~ Suteki~~~   What is a ”three-dimensional maneuver”, and how is it special or effective against the Titans? Here’s a template with specific explanation. If you’re so confused looking at the image above, I suggest you go watch the Attack on Titan Animation. As a cosplayer, three dimensional maneuver gear is essential to make your cosplay perfect, no matter which character you’re going to be and which legion you’re in. Sure Recon Corps (Scouting/Survey Legion) use them more often. Thanks to the “Currently Disclosable Information ”, (so considerate!) making belt prop and DIY the device become less difficult. It’s a pity that I’m a girl without ingenuity so I cannot make cosplay props, not to say such a complicated one. If you’re determined to create one by yourself, here’re some tutorials you may be able to use: http://junkerscosplay.blogspot.com/2013/07/attack-on-titan-eren-jaeger-christa.html http://www.4shared.com/photo/ij7OCclV/AOT_1.html? http://cosplayruinedmylife.tumblr.com/post/53624044593/basic-craft-foam-attack-on-titan-3dmg-blade And if you’re not satisfied with just a prop for cosplay, check the end of this article for a real one! Someone joked that “you can build a plane with the time of making a 3DMG”   First of all, imo the best of our 3DMG is the material. People tends to use EVA to make all kinds of pros, it’s cheap, light, easy to cut, but it gets bumpy easily and it wouldn’t look so real with metallic gloss. Of course you can use metal but that would be too heavy. The one we have now is made of PVC and PMMAwhich weighs about 5kg. [I don’t think I can walk with real metal 3DMG on. (─.─|||) ] Some tools involved in the apparatus include (Whether our 3DMG has): Handgrips (Yes) Piston-shot grapple-hooks (Yes but no hook) Gas powered mechanism (Yes) Iron Wire Propeller with Plug in Blades (Yes) Attack on Titan 3D MG Assembling Tutorial/Guidance Author About Crystal LiMore Posts (23)
