The Iron Giant Rises at NYCC

The Iron Giant stood tall at New York Comic Con.

This was Cykick’s third and largest cosplay on homemade stilts. Measuring approximately 10-feet tall and taking approximately 500 hours to build, the body is completely scaled by hand. Nearly 50 EVA foam mats and cardboard tubing were used for the body and appendages, while wood and PVC were used for the frame and 2-foot stilts. The costume cost under $200 to build and weighs over 60 pounds.
