Cosplayers are a unique and talented bunch of individuals. They are able to use ordinary materials such as fabric, plastic and foam and with time, patience, craftsmanship and an ever so meticulous eye for detail turn those raw materials into amazing costumes that represent every possible fandom on earth. Each week here on House Of The Geeks we want shine a spotlight on these amazing makers and show off our favourite cosplay that they have created.
I grew up on Transformers especially the generation 1 Transformers and the cartoon series that accompanied the toy line. Of course, we all love Optimus Prime, BumbleBee and Megatron who transformed into the amazing handgun. I still despise Hot Rod for taking over the mantle of Prime and becoming Rodimus Prime when he caused the death of Optimus. I was super pumped when it was announced that Michael Bay would be creating a live action Transformers movie and I’m not going to apologize for liking them, it was like being a kid again and everything I loved about the Transformers was on screen.
Transformers while personally one of my favorites, does not lend itself particularly well to cosplay or so I thought…then I found Brad Biddle and his creation of Ironhide which has to be seen to be believed. Normally, I would wait until a cosplay was finished to share it but this Ironhide is so impressive that I couldn’t wait to share it so more people could see it. Check out the gallery below and you’ll see what I mean.
The detail and work on Ironhide is incredibly impressive and I can’t wait to see Ironhide when it’s complete.
