Wrench


Wrench is my second cosplay from the Watch Dogs franchise

The mask is a paintball mask, where I dyed the visor and put the LED matrices behind the visor. You can see through in the middle and I can switch through all the emotes, Wrench has in the game.
I bought the vest from Amazon and put 667 studs onto it. It took me about 7 hours to finish it. After that only the patches were missing. The front one was printed and the back one was painted with textile paint.
My mother sewed the hoodie on which I then printed the logo.

Why did you choose this character?
I just loved the character from the first time I saw it. So, it had to be done!


What were the biggest challenges?
Definitely the mask. The emotes are changeable so it was a challenge to get all the stuff and programm all the emotes. But it worked. Also it was a lot of work to do all the studs.


Which materials did you use?

  • Paintball mask
  • Adafruit NeoPixel RGB Matrix 8×8
  • Arduino Micro
  • Biker mask
  • spikes
  • 667 Studs for the vest and 96 for the shoes
  • Denim (red and black for the patches)


What do you like the most about this cosplay?
I think the mask is one of the most complex things I have built so far. It is comfortable, easy to wear and all in all just awesome. Also the group I had at gamescom was so cool. And we even met the Community Developers there!!!
