Pit - Kid Icarus Uprising - Nintendo by LiKovacs Pit - Kid Icarus Uprising - Nintendo by LiKovacs
:star: Find more on my Facebook page! :star:


----
 Tumblr Post here!
Earlier this year, 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!


Official Nintendo Pit costume - made (including the wings) and worn by me

I hope you can answer this question.

Did you make the red with gold trim? If so, what did you use for the gold?

I was thinking of just getting ribbon and cutting the gold piece into the design. Then gluing it on.

That's it, I officially need to make a Pit costume! It looks hard though. Was it very difficult for you to make? Not that diificulty is going to scare me away from making a costume of Pit myself! :D

I actually bought this game today, and just because I saw this photo of you cosplaying as Pit yesterday :O I only knew him from Super Smash bros Brawl, and now I can finally play an entire game where you play as him! :D

And back to the cosplay, amazing, magnificent, such words aren't able to describe the costume in its entirety and glory. You look just like Pit! Did you really create all that yourself from scratch!? Wow! And I can see why Nintendo hired you, and why even Masahiro Sakurai approved the costume and all beforehand. Amazing, simply amazing!

Oh, and you surely promoted the game. At least to me ;)
