Warframe - Mesa Prime - 3D print and cosplay
Like my halo armors, I'm using the in game model as a base mesh that way I already have accurate primary shapes and forms, and it saves time. I begin by sorting all the parts that will be printed. There is also a lot of pieces baked into the texture of the model that will need to be made from scratch such as details on the chest, back and, and arms. My focus is on what would be static in areas that wouldn't bend. A lot of this is the just the same pieces duplicated multiple times so it's less than it looks.
I'm Starting with the hat and Regulators pistols first which are main highlights. since Mesa Prime's hat is a literal part of her head and organically flows in into the back of her skull I had to improvise the back of hat in a way that was minimal but still provided support since it curve's upward. I separate all the copper ornamentation and detailing while rescaling and remodeling it into a base hat that could fit a human head. Since I don't have Zbrush at the moment I'll be omitting some if finer lines and details to create a simpler/clean design. I still need to smooth out the geometry and define my shapes which I can just use Maya's sculpting tool kit for. Once that's done I'll remodel the copper ornaments and just kit bash them back onto the hat.
When I'm done with the hat I'll move onto the Regulator Pistols. These are pretty simple and straight forward, Though I'm posed with the question of how they actually get to her hands. Since there isn't an actually animation for it and they just appear in her hands when you use them, the easy assumption is they just swivel up and detach into her hands using game logic. I could do the same by mounting them on the inside of the wrist closer to the palm, and while it would be a cool effect it to just whip 'em out, it wouldn't be very comfortable as they would not go completely into my palms and might break too easy at the swivel if I used it too many times or bent my wrist while holding them. I noticed however they are mounted on the outside of her wrists, which got me thinking, maybe she just grabs and pulls them off with the opposite hands that way. This way I can just put magnets in the bracer and pistol and not have to worry about breaking anything.
After that I'll just need to model all the detail pieces that would attach to the main body which will then be glued to the main suit.
For the main body I being going with the same color scheme as the images and us a blue bodysuit as the base then layer thin black and yellow fabrics on to of that. I'll use yellow, blue, and black pleather's to make the chaps, vest, belts, and boots. I'll use some sort of shiny copper material for the trimming and stuff. I wont be going one for one with the the same level of detail as in the game. Some of it is just too much and a lot of it gets lost with just a little bit of distance. Almost all of this can be fixed directly on to the body suit so I can just slip in and out of it with little effort. I'm not electronic savvy enough to try and do any of the little lights and stuff so those I'll probably paint with a neon or glow in the dark paint.
I'm supper excited to work on this I just really wish my printer weren't broke right now and i wasn't the poor. My biggest challenge with this will be all the sewing I'll have to do which I've never really done. In addition to this I may also make the vectis or sybaris.
TENNOCON COSPLAY RULES
A Warframe convention would not be complete without a couple of Clems and Grakata! With so much Tenno talent out there we are looking forward to seeing your Warframe inspired creations at this year’s TennoCon. This year, an even bigger and better Cosplay Show will commence on the Main Stage with cash prizes available to be won!
To ensure the safety of all attendees and staff, costume props will be subject to inspection at the ARSENAL before entering the event.
All Primary weapons, Secondary weapons, Melee weapons, and all other props will be inspected by door security who will authorize entrance. The following props will not be permitted IF:
- It is a live firearm weapon. IE: Airsoft, BB, and live round guns.
- It fires any sort of projectile.
- Nerf guns and other foam dart guns are permitted only if the darts are not on the attendee or loaded into the gun at any time during the event.
- Bows without arrows are permitted.
- Throwing Knives (Spira for example) are not permitted.
- It has the uncanny appearance of a real firearm.
This will be determined at the sole discretion of the security staff examining the item.
Metal weapons of any kind are not permitted. Weapons that could cut or pierce someone (including swords, blades, knives, etc) made out of wood or any other material are not be permitted.
In the event the prop is not considered admissible, you will be asked to remove the weapon from Convention grounds.
No nudity, profanity or other offensive material will be permitted.
In desperate need of help for Warframe Cosplay
Then you need to think about what build methods A) you already know how to use, and B) you are willing to learn.
This is going to determine how detailed of a build you are going to commit to. I'd be looking to do a latex-skinned muscle suit if I were going to build either of these, along with looking to find a PDO file with some foam templates for the helmet and body armor.
There's a number of great muscle suit tutorials on youtube. I like this one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQyejurdtCI
If building a latex suit is out of your skill set or too much work for what you're able to do for this build, you may want to look at getting a full body lycra spandex suit from eBay or Amazon and attaching craft foam to it in a way that simulates the look of Excalibur. Like this--
