So the competitive season of Overwatch has ended, but that doesn’t mean your love for the game has to end as well! As far as cosplay goes, we see a lot of Genjis, McCrees, Hanzos, TONS of D.VA’s but not too many Lucios. So when we saw this Lucio video floating online we HAD to see what was up! Check out our interview with Ace cosplayer Monty!
NHG- How old are you and when did you start cosplaying?
Monty- I am 26 years old and I started cosplaying maybe 7 or 8 years ago
NHG- How long did it to build your Lucio cosplay?
Monty- It took me 340 hours to complete this cosplay
NHG- On a scale of 1-10 how difficult was making this?
NHG- Did you ever want to give up?
Monty- No. I never wanted to give up, I kept pushing myself from start to finish.
NHG- How did you make this cosplay?
Monty-I used so many different items from foams, to wood, to plastics, to rubber, to metals, leds, lights, different battery sizes and volts, multiple speakers and a subwoofer, at least 3 different types of fabric and more.
NHG- Does the gun shoot real music?
Monty- Yes the music comes out of the gun and the leds also go to the music
NHG- what other characters have you cosplayed?
Monty- Genji from Overwatch, Lucian from League of Legends and much more.
NHG- What is your favorite game?
Monty- Final Fantasy X
NHG- What is your next cosplay idea?
Monty- Terra from Kingdom Hearts or Arsene from Persona 5
NHG- What advice do you have for someone trying to tackle their own cosplay project?
Monty- I always starts with the hardest piece first. I feel if you can get through the most frustrating pieces then your confidence to build the other parts will be much higher.
Check out the video below to see Lucio in action! 😉
Guys this cosplay took me 340 hours to complete. I put my blood,sweat and tears into it. Its being powered by a custom battery. the gun is actually a 8 inch sub woofer with two 4 inch speakers on the side. They are being run through a amp and is blue toothed to my phone! The Leds go to the music from my gun and everything, It even made the shirt, the pants, the belt, everything! I worked so hard to make this cosplay a reality. Please show me some support by like, commenting and sharing. It would mean the world to me <3Song krale – highnoon
