Green Futures, yesterday.

Maybe the featured “spring-heeled jack stiltwalker” is a drywaller? 'Cuz those sure look like run-of-the-mill drywall stilts with some extra stuff bolted on…


#4

Yep, pretty much right off the shelf. That’s not even trying…

It’s a cool costume, but I wonder if he’s actually supposed to be Spring-heeled Jack, rather than just some steampunk inventor fellow. Where’s the cape, the red eyes, the iron claws?


#6

Nice! Much cooler than the article’s drywall stilts with crap bolted to them.


#7

Steampunk: 20% inspiration, 80% copper spray paint and hot glue.


#8

Is it? Those are retail jump stilts with shoes on them.


#9

I hope Springheel’d Jack turns up on Penny Dreadful before too long.

Finally, someone willing to report the fact that cosplay costumes are not always 100% scratchbuilt. I’m sure we were all ready to believe that he hand-forged the steel himself.


#11

Not sure how a guy who spent time and effort on a costume is less cool than a guy who dropped $500 on a pair of jump stilts and then ambled around in them.


#12

That looks familiar. This is a costume I build between '09 -'11.


#13

You forgot 10% gears.
