Magic-Egyptian-Armor Moon Knight Cosplay

Here’s my version of Moon Knight, wearing his “magic Egyptian armor” as seen in the 2014 volume of Moon Knight, issue 3.  I wore it at DragonCon.

This was probably my most ambitious project yet.  Some challenges included figuring out scale mail, eye coverings that look opaque white from the outside and you can see through from the inside, and how to carve that bird skull out of insulation foam.  Also, capes and hoods: not as easy as you would think!

I was quite happy with it, although there are changes I’ll make for New York Comic Con this year, so check back again after that to see the improved version.

I would say the various whites are not as obviously different as they look in some of the photos.
