Dreadnok Torch

Dreadnok Torch

At DragonCon 2014, I was fortunate enough to get involved with a great group of cosplayers to do the Dreadnoks from the GI Joe cartoon. I chose Torch as the character I would portray, and I had an absolute blast creating the costume. While it was a simple build, my focus was on authenticity to the toy more than anything else. Everything from the beard style to the placement of the costume pieces varied quite a bit from the action figure to the comics to the cartoon Torch, so this was something I had to establish early on.
