I decided today that when I’m taking a break from working on my thesis I’d start poking at my Cherno Alpha Jaeger Crew cosplay again. \o/
Things Completed for the Jacket:
The first pic is what I have done so far. I got the PPDC and fancy Cherno Alpha patch from the amazing themarginistoosmall's etsy shop last year. I've run the jacket through the wash a few times and I'm super pleased how they are holding up but also relaxing. :D As for the kaiju heads I made a stencil for and painted on a bit haphazardly and then blotted some of the paint off because I didn't want them to look uniform and too clean.
Things in progress for the Jacket:
For funsies on the left breast area is going to go a name tape that I just ordered with my great grandmother’s maiden name, Adamek, in Cyrillic, which should look something like pic 2. (My actual last name is so solidly not slavic in any way it isn’t funny). Right below that is probably going to go either the patch in the thrid pic, or I’ll convert it into a stencil and paint it on. I’m leaning towards the latter because I am nuts. This is where I got that patch last year but it doesn’t look like they are selling it anymore. :(
Once I get the simple Cherno Alpha logo in the fourth pic cleaned up and made A-OK to turn into a stencil this entire thing will be painted on the back of my jacket.
Things I have to figure out if I want to do for the Jacket:
I’ve debated taking some grease to it and/or putting some hand sewn patches to make it look like there were holes fixed. Also have debated taking sandpaper to the hems to get them more worn looking…
Either way, woo progress!
so-i-did-this-thing I’m tagging you because dude you are an inspiration when it comes to Pacific Rim cosplay. :D
You should make this a for-realsies jacket and not just for cosplay. ;)
I’ve wanted to be a part of Pacific Rim 2 ever since it was announced. This is what I’ve put together own my own time with the intention of hopefully getting noticed by the right people. I’d love to be a storyboard artist and involved somehow in future Pacific Rim productions. I hope you all enjoy watching this little segment, and please help me by sharing it and spreading the word about my goofy little demo reel!
Here’s hoping that I get a chance to work on PR professionally! :D THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

OH MY GOD MY FIANCE MADE THESE FOR ME. I got home from San Diego Comic-Con and he had created them while I was gone. He is amazing and these are amazing. Check them out!
[Newt’s base is Leonard from Big Bang Theory’s head and Daryl Dixon’s body. Hermann’s base is Daryl’s head and Leonard’s body. Hannibal’s base is Clay Morrow from Sons Of Anarchy, natch.]
These are fantastic!
Meeting the director
OMG YOU GOT TO MEET GUILLERMO?!?!
Q______Q DID YOU GIVE HIM ANY STAMPS, GATARO?!?
I didn’t get ticket to meet him because they are gone so fast. I was standing there and taking pictures. Then he notice Cherno and me….. He holed Cherno kissed and signed it.
I also went to The Strain event in the night. He just appeared from nowhere. I said I didn’t expect to meet you because I didn’t get the ticket! ” now you see me haha!”
He told me Cherno is his favourite jaeger and his daughter hates him because he killed Cherno.
then I gave him the Pawcific Rim postcard. I was so nervous so I just write ” thank you for everything!”
He says he loves it. qvq
I tell him that I love your movies and the art direction.I watched the DVD with commentary so I learned so much from it.
"That’s why I put so many details in my film!" He said.
Then I cried from happiness so he hugged me qwq
He is such nice and awesome person.
AWWWW THAT’S SO AWESOME!!! ;w;
Working out a weathering scheme for the pons pieces. Center piece is pretty close to what I want, all the others are a base coat of Rustoleum hammered silver.
Sintra is somewhere between plastic and foam with regards to painting — the top is smooth, but the sides are VERY porous. I’ve found that rub ‘n’ buff forms a great waxy layer to smooth the sides, plus adds some additional sheen.
I think truly he would like an understated grey or possibly a nice dark red but selfishly I want him to wear only mustard-colored
JAMIE YOU NEED TO GET ONE OF THESE AND BRANCH OUT FROM BROWN/GRAY/BLUE
If I was wearing a plaid houndstooth sportscoat with elbow patches, that was the real me. :) Dang it, sorry I was probably on my way to the loading bay — I was there to help with the dance and spent 99% of my time in the back hallways. I hope everyone at AFO had a good time!
