The Groudon Project by CanineHybrid The Groudon Project by CanineHybrid
This is the fabulous photo collage I put together of my Groudon project that will be printed at a lovely 36"x24" and put up for display at my school for awhile. The photo itself is ungodly huge to be at full resolution to print that large- to put it in perspective, the size of the downloaded image is only a quarter of the original size. I cannot WAIT to see this thing printed out because I get a copy of it too! :happybounce:

These images have been available on my Flickr account for years and also make up a good portion of my YouTube progress videos, so now DA can have them!

Groudon is a costume I spent 2 years and over 300 hours of work on to complete, he has won many awards at conventions, and is a lovable walking couch! He's made of upholstery foam and velour with LED eyes from ~DreamVisionCreations. He is not currently for sale.





Check out Groudon's full Work In Progress photo gallery (over 570 photos!) on my Flickr account here.
Or browse all of my costume progress photos: [link]

I put lots of videos on my YouTube channel: youtube.com/caninehybrid

This is amazing.  I'm just in awe of how perfect this is.  I got a few questions:  How much did it cost you, overall, to make all of that?  I'm hoping to do a Groudon Cosplay just like what you did.  I'll give you credit if anyone asks me!!!!!!

Thanks a bunch for the compliments!

In total is cost me about $400 in materials, though granted I didn't keep track of it very well and it was several years ago so prices have also changed. I don't recommend tackling a project as advanced as this until you've got some experience working with creature costumes and the materials involved, but best of luck if you do~

Wow, thank you so much!!!  :D  Your outfits are just perfect.  Your Groudon is one of my Favorites, he's one of my fave Legendary Pokemon.  I was going to tryout the Groudon outfit AFTER my current attempt - I'm trying to make a Spartan outfit from Pepakura from the Halo series!  I'm going to start tomorrow, and hopefully I can get it all done!!!

Oh, so you take the green pieces off to make the patterns, I see. Also, I don't think I asked this yet, but where did you get the bodysuit to put it all on? And what was the purpose of the bedsheet again?

So awesome! Would there be any way you could think of to make the lines between the plating glow like they did in the movie? Or to give his underside more of the 'void' look it had? I imagine it'd be very difficult and probably expensive, but it would probably look INCREDIBLE.

Why are there quotation marks around Groudon? Unneeded quotation marks are a pet peeve of mine, although I don't know the grammatical specifications of quotes.
