Art3mis (Ready Player One) Cosplay
My first real collaborative project with someone else, EntropySylph pitched the idea to me about making armor based on the description of Art3mis from the fantastic novel Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. EntropySylph introduced the book to me and was quite enthusiastic about cosplaying as one of her favorite characters and I didn’t want to disappoint! The suit is a painted EVA foam construct with an insanely bright acrylic Art3mis character sign (designed by myself in Adobe Illustrator and laser cut by the fine folks at Ponoko.com). The Art3mis sign, “jetpacks” on the back of the armor, and the blaster pistols all used LED lighting to achieve the desired effects. If you are interested to see how we built this cosplay, stay tuned for future Walk-Through posts regarding this build!
EntropySylph and myself (ShadowspriteT7) would like to take this opportunity again to thank Mr. Cline for writing such an incredible story that inspired us to make something from his universe, and to all of the fans of the book who offered so much positive feedback, its very exciting to hear that you all enjoyed seeing it as much as we did making it!
