Airwolf by Nehta Airwolf by Nehta
Here is my Airwolf costume for 2009' carnival!!!
This TVshow went out in the eighties, and I was a great fan of it when I was younger.

I hope you'll enjoy it!
At last I didn't get cold in my outfit this year!

Awesome costume! I'm glad there are fans out there that would take the time to make their own suits! I do have a question for you. Roughly how much money did you have to spend to make everything? The reason is, I want to make my own for a couple of conventions next year and I'm trying not to order one from eBay if I can help it.

Well I bought a light gray garage mechanic outfit in a shop specialized in work outfits, I don't remember the price exactly but I had to add all decorations on it to make it look the way it came out.

It's more interesting to make it on your own ;)

Thank you. At least I know now what kind of suit to use as a base. Again, fantastic job on your costume!

Definitely the prettiest Airwolf pilot ever ^^ Fantastic cosplay, too...

Geez, i can't believe what I'm seeing. A girl who cosplays an Airwolf pilot, draws cars, is mega cute and talented? Things like that just don't happen O_o
Guys must be swarming around and fighting to the death over you, LOL! ;)

I wish my wife and I could work on our costumes so freely - after we moved here we don't have room for that, no sewing machine and no workshop for my fiberglassing. We're working on a Chun Li costume for her this time, but progress is painfully slow :(

:D Thank you very much!
Yeah, I did the Airwolf pilot costume and I draw cars, and - mega cute? :D LOOOOL I'm getting red :D
Unfortunately boys don't seem to fight for me at all :( It would be entertaining if only :D

Oh yeah Chun Li cosplay is really an awesome subject! I was fan of the Street Fighter first game on Super Nintendo, this reminds me of good memories, playing with my brothers and friends :D

I hope you'll see it progress much faster now :D

Hmm... I suppose it might entertaining, but you might eventually get tired of having to sweep the bodies ;) But jokes aside, I can't believe you're not getting such attention - are you hiding or something? :)

Yup, SF2 and its follow-ups is definitely one of the coolest games of all time. It was a milestone in terms of gameplay, characters and so on. It redefined what fighting games should be like. And finally, it had Chun Li. As embarassing as it may sound... I had a big crush on Chun li when I was a kid - even though at that point I only saw her in the FIRST SF2 game, as a tiny pixelated sprite... I know this is silly :)

This should be a fantastic costume when finished, and it's a very appropriate character for my beloved :iconnalafontaine: - similar figure: [link] and the right skills: [link]

I just can't wait to see her in that :D

I'm just wondering... were there other costumes you did before this? :)

Thanks for sharing those pics :) Your wife is really good at drawing too!! I think she would make an awesome Chun Li :) You have to take action pictures! a lot of people cosplay fighters and don't seem dangerous at all, but some picture with special kick on would be great! :D

My costumes are on [link], look for a cosplayer named Nehta ;)

Well, i hope the costume turns out well... we;ll get help from her mom, who's a genius at tailoring things :) We'll have to go to Sherbrooke to see her (some 200km from Montreal)... that's another reason why I'm DYING to get my car back, LOL

This is absolutely amazing!! I've been a longtime fan of the show, so it's great to see it getting some love and attention. It truly is a classic show, and you'll never see real aerial stunts like that on a show (or movie) again now that they can computer generate everything.

Is the jumpsuit something you made yourself or did you buy it? I want to put together a Airwolf crew costume myself and am unsure where to buy the flightsuit. And if you made the costume yourself, do you take on commissions? =)

Hi!

Thanks very much for your interest in this outfit :)

I've bought a normal garage mechanic combinaison (I looked for a gray one, as you can see). I sew on this outfit all the new elements. There are about 2 whole sewing days on it ^^

The helmet was an old motorcycle helmet I worked on with fiber glass and other stuff.

Black belt, shoes and "airwolf" patches have been bought ;)

I'm sorry I don't take commissions, making this one was enough for me :XD:

I'd love to see your crew costume when you'll build it!
