In 2017 MEDION Germany commissioned us to bring their brand mascot, the Erazer Girl, to life for GamesCom. The Erazer Girl is actually a female looking robot and so it was quite challenging to create a fitting cosplay for a human being. The goal was to build the costume for a model, so a different person would wear it at trade shows and brand events. Benni and I worked for two intense weeks on the bodysuit and the armor, which we had to create based on a model’s measurements. The costume had to be very comfortable, fast to get in and out, easy to repair and maintain and small enough for transportation.
I created a bodysuit from scratch and used EVA foam as my main material for the armor. Instead of digging super deep into my detailed reference material, I mainly wanted the future model to be comfy in it. EVA foam was here a great pick, as it’s soft, wrinkles can be easily fixed with a heat gun and the costume turned out very lightweight. In addition, the Erazer Girl was a super fun project in general.
After 2 months of intense work the team of MEDION Germany was super happy and welcomed the Erazer Girl at their booth at GamesCom 2017. Please check out the full making of video on my Youtube channel. I think, it’s one of my most educational and inspiring videos I’ve ever made! You might also like my EVA foam crafting guide!
