A huge prop made by LauraC and me. Built for a Wreck-It-Ralph skit at AOD 2013 in San Francisco.
The skit took 'Best Construction' at the masquerade. This is a picture with LauraC in the car to show the scale of the kart.
Completely collapsible - Front and back of car disconnect, spoiler, wheels, rear rims, 6 pipes all disconnect for easy transport. Has suspenders to keep it up while the rider walks around.
Made in a span of 3-4 weeks. It was a fun and complex build with many crazy steps. Most serendipitous was when we found the fabric for the purple and brown slurry at the same time. The fabric has a nice sparkle to it that was perfect for the car. Every star sprinkle was made and painted by hand. Wheels and pipes painted by hand. Final weight - ~13lbs HEAVY!
Thank you for all your comments and support!
Edit: WOW! we got featured as 'the best in cosplay' on Kotaku this past week!! Thanks![link]
Also despite what people on the Kotaku link forum scream about photoshop, all I did to this picture was crop a little bit on the right side, no other adjustments were made.
