One of the best things that happened while I was cosplaying King Dedede was just like in the game when somebody is doing really well there is a crowd chant of the name. There were several people in a group who saw me come by and then they started chanting my character’s name and I did a little pose for them and it was great fun! I was just really excited that people were able to recognize me even though I didn’t do an exact replica of the character.
I have been a fan of Smash Brothers since Super Smash Brothers came out several years ago and originally I am a Pac-Man Main. However with the new game Super Smash Brothers ultimate I have become very fond of King Dedede as far as the character and fighting style. I decided that for Colossalcon this year I will put together a Super Smash Brothers ultimate cosplay group swimsuit edition!
My cosplay was all handmade from materials I had left over from previous projects. I took the design aspects of the character and created something recognizable and unique. I also made the hammer using EVA foam and PVC pipe.
