Vanellope's Kart (2) by IkariyaManga Vanellope's Kart (2) by IkariyaManga
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!

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.

WOW! That's very accurate with the car model in the movie. It would be epic if this kart is driveable.
but
How you can fit in that small kart ?

@___@ I don't see how so many people ask this or assume this is photoshopped together. She's kneeling down inside the car shell.

what tipe of material did u use to make the shape of the car (i mean like to give it a shape like a car not the extras? wood

IkariyaManga Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013
The rounded shape was achieved by using foamcore to make the curves solid and rigid. I then took some cushion foam and made a cover for it in the right shape after careful measuring and cutting. The cover cloth was then added with hot glue and trimmed.

How did you fit inside that kart? Unless you punched a hole in that bed, I can only assume you have no legs.
