Vault Dweller (Sole Survivor)
Creating this costume was SO MUCH FUN! Since I played Fallout 4 pretty excessively (never played the previous games for some reason), I just had to recreate my own character from the game. Going with the bad-ass raider armor was an easy decision for me and of course I just had to build “The Last Minute”, the strongest weapon in the game to go along with my outfit. We also had to make a custom 3d printed Pip-Boy, since the one from the collectors edition was way too big for my tiny hands.
I created all of the armor with my favorite EVA foam from cosplayshop.be and together with my husband we used all kinds of techniques including laser cutting and 3D printing to create the big Gauss rifle. Check out the video on how we made the Pip-Boy and “The Last Minute”!

LEDs are very shiny, impressive and … maybe a little bit intimidating? I thought the same until I figured out how easy it all actually is!
You need to sew a skirt, a shirt or another piece of fabric for your costume but are completely lost? I know how you feel! Luckily it’s actually very easy!
