Tyranid Hormagaunt Cosplay by calgarycosplay Tyranid Hormagaunt Cosplay by calgarycosplay
This was my costume for The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo 2011. A Tyranid Hormagaunt from Warhammer 40000. Yes I play nids.

Please Click this link [link] [link] [link]
To see more of this costume in action and in higer definition.
I also explain the two main things its made up of.

This was a great idea by my friend :iconj-walker-anonymous: :iconj-walker-anonymous: :iconj-walker-anonymous: We were going to go together as tyranids but there was not enough time for both of our costumes.

It has an articulated (working) jaw and upright tail, extra arms etc. Really the photos speak for themselves.

Got an interview with "space" channel and shaw TV!
I did not go through with entering the contst as the staff were telling me to, because.. it wasnt cool doing it alone when it was a friend thing. But I did win a "Hall Masquerade" blue ribbon award anyways.

This was alot of work and effort. Was the best I could do in 5 days that I had set aside before CCEE.
However I know whats wrong with it and shall put more time into this. The bodysuit is going to be redone as it weighs 40lbs, the legs are missing a joint and people thrashed the tail at the con.
A big shout out to :iconcaninehybrid: who's youtube and flicker accounts I studied in order to figure out the articulated jaw! Here is an instructional video! [link]
