Cosplay Wednesday – Gears of War’s Theron Guard

Originally making its appearance on the PC earlier this year, the world of Gears Tactics is making its way to consoles this month. In honor of this platform jump, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of Gears of War’s Theron Guard.

A freelance illustrator and prop maker based outside of Kansas City, Missouri, SKSProps turned his talents to Gears of War’s Theron Guard in the following cosplay. This build, shown at Dragon Con 2017 and C2E2 2018, took 327 hours of work across six weeks. In particular, this build utilized arm and leg extensions as well as a built from scratch muscle suit.
