3D Maneuver Gear; Now without all the hassle
Many of you have already seen cosplay (or cosplayed) of characters from the Shinegki/Attack on Titan. The design is simple and badass enough for anyone to want to do it, even as a first attempt as cosplay. However, while tons of SnK/AoT cosplayers do a spot-on job of the uniform, many forgo making the 3D Maneuver Gear considering their complex design. Of course there are always those 3D Maneuver Gear “Budget Edition” and I salute and applaud all of them but they don’t exactly have the same feel.
Well those of you with money don’t have to worry about that anymore. Movic now has on their site an amazing replica of the gear for only 99,800 yen (or roughly over 900 dollars in USD). For that money you could probably attempt to build your own functioning, albeit extremely dangerous, 3D Maneuver Gear. I am saying attempt because I’m not responsible for any of you losing an eye in a hydraulic malfunction.
The gear is composed of ABS foam, which is a material lots of cosplayers use for heavy-duty cosplay, like space armor and Iron Man’s crotch piece.
