It all started when I dressed up as a Kamen Rider to a Halloween party once.

I watched it when it was broadcasted on TV when I was a kid.
Can you walk us through your process of creating a cosplay?
Basically, I create a pattern after creating a design, then I paste it after assembling the pattern expanded polyethylene (EPE). I utilize other materials such as FRP.

Uchuu Keiji Gavan. I am attracted to metallic combat suits.

Please make many friends and enjoy cosplay, and mold and revise.
