Kid Icarus Uprising - Nintendo Pit Costume by LiKovacs Kid Icarus Uprising - Nintendo Pit Costume by LiKovacs

Tumblr Post here!
In early 2012, Nintendo contacted me to create a Pit costume and model as Pit for them from their Nintendo 3DS game "Kid Icarus Uprising". I was hired to model, flown out from California to work PAX East in Boston, MA as the official Pit costumed character to promoting the game, and hand out exclusive KIU AR cards!

The costume and myself to model as Pit was approved by Nintendo and Masahiro Sakurai himself before hand. They provided references so I can recreate the costume as accurately as possible and each stage of the costume needed to go through approvals before moving on.

----
I really like Kid Icarus and Pit is such a fun character to play as! I always wanted to make a Pit costume. This is also probably one of my most comfortable costumes and doesn't take very long to put on. This was also my first time creating wings. Definitely a challenge and learning experience!
I will be putting up a tutorial on how to make wings real soon!

Hi, no I didn't. I've been too busy and never got around to it. Sorry. Maybe one day when I make wings again.

Your costume is amazing!

I was wondering if you've uploaded the tutorials for the wing anywhere? They are so floofy.

I never knew that was you I saw at PaxEast in 2012! No wonder it was so well done! I still am in awe of those wings. I mean, they look great in these pictures but are nothing compared to what they look like in person. As always, love the work you do!
