allison chase known for very large cosplays
The Orlando cosplayer is known for creating extra-large cosplays. For example, her Cart Titan is 14-feet long, 8-feet high, and 5-feet wide. See more of her over-sized work below.
The character Cart Titan is one of the Nine Titans who has a quadrupedal form that provides for incredible speed and amazing endurance. And Allison's build actually moves (she is inside at the controls- see the cosplay move in the video of her cosplays below).
THE POWER LOADER FROM ALIEN
In the sci-fi movie Alien, the P-5000 Power Loader, aka the Power Loader, is a mechanical exoskeleton that bad-ass protagonist Ellen Ripley used to kick some out of this world butt.
In the cosplay, The Power Loader is 8-feet tall (and weighs only 40 pounds), and is used by talented builder Allison Chase Cosplay to astound anyone within eyesight.
Power Loader earned 2nd place in the Walk On Contest at MegaCon 2018. Learn more about her journey building The Power Loader.
guardian from legend of zelda: breath of the wild
The Guardian is 7-feet wide and 6-feet tall. The body moves, the head rotates, and there are lots of lights. It's built from PVC, chicken wire and expanding foam with a layer of paper mache. (and that's Allison standing beside it). Guardian took the Journeyman Category at MegaCon Orlando 2022.
Is that a T-1000 Terminator statue? No, it's Allison Chase Cosplay!

Advice For New Cosplayers
"Don't wait to be good at something to start something. You don't have to be perfect or skilled to start. Starting something is how you develop those skills and improve with each project. Just start."
