Liger Zero Jager NDK 2010 by Zhon Liger Zero Jager NDK 2010 by Zhon
The Most Epic Thing At Nandesukan 2010!

A Fully Operational Liger Zero Jager fromt he show Zoids!!!

Moveable jaw, light up eyes and light up jets!

It was the most fun I've had with a cosplay at NDK! Granted of course it took a lot out of me to walk good!
Best video uploaded at the moment can be found here: [link]
I will take a pro-mini-film of it once it's all spruced up.

Oh it was hot and only got harder after the first hour. The suit itself weighs about 35-ish lbs.

The screen inside wouldn't function right because of the wireless internet all around the inside of the hotel...so I was blind the whole time.

Hahah! I had friends around me to help guide me. The hotel had small corridors so I was doomed to stay pretty much in the entryway.

I coulda pulled the all fours walking off, actually :D since I regularly run around on all fours on my hands and feet anyway just in case I can do something like this someday. though I'm small, so it would be a small liger xD or I'd do a lightning saix, something more sleek.

You've already pulled it off quite well when you are crouched! If you wanted to stand taller while on all fours, and not have your bum as high in the air you can almost just make extensions for the front legs!
Like here is a good schematic: [link]

OH so you are the lucky one who ended up being the Liger zero jager!. I love it so damm much, I would have petted you too :XD: Masterle done a great job what a beauty, some teething problems I see (the boosters) but i'm sure nothing that can't be corrected for next time. Must have been hard walking on all fours much of the day I admire that ! well worth it though I bet!
I'm just so hoping there is more footage of you walking and chompingout there, It just looks outstanding and beautiful just like liger zero himself

But yeah! Lots of modifying ahead!
My boyfriend and I will make a mini-film. Once done I'll notify everyone of it!

No yoga...I'm half asian so contortionist is in my blood! ROFL!
But it was hard... when I was told to go someplace (because I was too big for the entryway or halls) I had to walk like....20-30 feet... that was brutal.

I repeat my statements - so jealous. <3 Actually inspired me to cosplay this year to my con! (Anime Banzai - only one in Utah, or was. ;0; MY SAD LITTLE STATE.) If someone can MAKE this, and someone can WEAR this, I can manage something simple, surely! ..I hope.

Anyhow, these shots are the best ones - they really show it off in different angles, and different poses. Just.. excellent. Gyah. I can't express my love enough. XD

There's a convention here in Colorado called Anime Wasabi...and it's a pathetic little one that about 500 people go to. Nandesukan (this convention) was capped at 7,500.
Reply
:iconrythos:
Rythos Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010
Aah, Wasabi. The condiment from hell. <3 Yeah 500 was about the size of the first Banzai I went to, about 5 years ago.. though I think it might've been less, even. Two years ago it EXPLODED because we had Vic Mignogna (is that how you spell it? Eh) come. We were also reeallyy loud so we had to move locations for like the fourth time. Now I think we're at a couple, several thousand maybe? Not really sure - but it expanded wayfast, and stayed big even last year.

Oh gosh, this brings back such memories. I used to love Zoids; still do, to some extent, and the ligers were almost always so sleek and stylized. That is such an awesome cosplay! :D

I actually always wanted a liger model kit, but never could track one down. I'm currently selling off my collection, but I might just look around on eBay, just for giggles. :giggle:

:iconzhon:
Zhon Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
Haha, I had an american Liger Zero model and when I bought the Jager armor, found out it wouldn't fit America's bastardized version (Japanese kit is just a tad smaller and more detail and contact points) So I later bought it.

WHY ARE YOU SELLING YOUR ZOIDS!!!!???
Trade fuzzies for them if you have any I don't have!
Reply
:iconwhitemarkfox:
WhiteMarkFox Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010
Ah, that's unfortunate. :hmm: I bought a lot of zoids on eBay a lloonngg time ago, but that lot only had pieces of the liger and I was never able to come across the rest. Boo. :giggle:

Haha, I'm always in the process of buying and selling stuff; it's an ongoing thing with me. (This is actually ~ScytheDragon; I went through a similar phase with some of my pelts just last month and you and I traded the white mark for the jackal. :)) That offer is tempting, though, if you're interested in models that have already been built? I have a mixture of Japanese and American kits left, but I can put together a thorough list if you're interested. Just let me know.
Reply
:iconzhon:
Zhon Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
OK! Now I remember Scythedragon! Your jackal is actually plushed and mostly done now. Just needs final airbrushing and it's all set for a photoshoot and to be mailed!

And sure! I'd love to know what you have in the ways of your model kits. I'm always on the lookout for interesting ones and can send along fuzzies or skulls or something with the Jackal when it's ready to mail (probably next week)

WhiteMarkFox Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2010
Oh man, that's awesome and such a pleasant surprise! I was excited about Halloween, but next week is even better. :D

As for the Zoids, I might as well just list them here. I have the following:

lightning saix
salamander (blue and light grey)
geno breaker
wardick
command wolf
gun sniper
godos
rev raptor
sniper master
metal rhimos
hammerhead
gorhecks (clear orange fins)
barigator
helcat (two of them, actually)
pteras
raynos
gunbeetle
sinker
stealth viper
and a few Blox Zoids (leoblaze, nightwise, unenlagia, and mosasledge)

If any of them interest you, just let me know and I'll gather them up and dust them off. :)
