Awesome Gipsy Danger with a Chain Sword Costume

femme gipsy danger

Pacific Rim has my heart for many reasons, and one is because it gave us Jaegers. Cosplayers are building replicas of the mechs, and Nona Neon Cosplay made an incredible femme version of Gipsy Danger. She crafted the armor and painted it just right and guess what? She also made the chain sword. Awesome.

She crafted the piece from wood. You can see a couple of in progress photos below. She cut the notches with a jigsaw, used a table saw for the bevels, and a hand sander to make the blade’s tip. She applied 2mm foam for the plates. Here are a few specifics:

The base is cut from a piece of pine wood, the middle details are 2mm foam detailed with a woodburner. Spray painted with dark gray and metallic silver spray paint and finally hand detailed with acrylic paint
Total Cost: $7.50
Work Time: approx 6 hours
