If you hear someone bellow “I’m the Juggernaut, bitch!” this weekend at MegaCon, odds are that it’s Bryan Doell — and you’ll probably want to get out of his way.
After talking about it for two years, the South Florida costume and prop maker finally decided in April to bring the X-Men’s longtime nemesis, and occasional ally, to life — all 7 feet 2 inches of him.
“My lifesize Juggernaut costume is done,” Doell proclaimed on Facebook. “I can’t even express what I’m feeling right now, this project pushed me to work outside of the box, way out of my comfort zone, and now it’s done. 100% scratch built, hand carved, freehanded, gigantic awesomeness.”
Although Marvel’s Juggernaut weighs in the neighborhood of 1,900 pounds, Doell’s is significantly lighter, as he used upholstery foam — which may not create an unstoppable force, but it’s certainly more practical.
You can see photos of the costume’s construction on Doell’s Instagram page.
