Belgian cosplayer Hartigan Cosplay breathes life into Attack on Titan’s Armored Titan as he stomps onto the field in jaw-dropping costumes.
Hartigan Cosplay, a Belgian cosplayer, has released a video that shows his Attack on Titan constructed.
The video brought the infamous Armored Titan to life The Armored Titan, along with the Colossal Titan destroyed Wall Maria and started Shonen, an anime series. The video opens with what looks like an artist’s workshop where Hartigan, clad in titan armor, walks toward the camera while the angle changes drastically to highlight their size of his. The actor “screams” throws an angry punch, and displays the jaw of a cast resin with teeth made of titan.

The costume is made of latex, upholstery foam, and PU resin. It took 350 hours to complete. The mask is equipped with LEDs and the mask can be removed while retaining its light. The jaw is moved by Hartigan’s to reveal an array of teeth when opened. Zippers of black and large sizes line the back, calves, and arms while a system of wires traces the inside. Hartigan made a muscle texture using a soldering gun to create lines in his foam. Then he covered it with multiple layers of latex. In the costume, the cosplayer was wearing an air-conditioned vest as well as a spandex suit to protect himself from overheating. The final size was 198cm.
Redditors flooded the comments section with questions on the process of making the costume, to which Hartigan replied with a mixture of jokes and comments. The crafter elaborated on how he managed to survive the heat when people expressed concerns about the comfort of the outfit. One user even inquired what it was like to move around in the suit, and Hartigan replied, “Over 9000.”
