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.

I put lots of videos on my YouTube channel:

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!!!
