The Solarbotics Comic Expos Best Projects Recap

Solarbotics has been a regular at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo for quite a few years now. Throughout the years we’ve shown off multiple projects that we created ourselves and in collaboration with some brilliant costume and prop designers. Here is a recap of the most impressive projects.

We are always happy to assist people doing something outstandingly elaborate, especially with the use of our parts. That is how we found out about the Iron Man by Phillip Vatour, which was featured at the Comic Expo 2016. It instantly became a center point for photo ops and tech related conversations.

Rainbow Brite was an ambitious and intensely prismatic cosplay build done by Lyn Janelle and Dan Damron of Solarbotics that probably can compare in brightness only to Angela Dale’s Chameleon Cocktail Dress.

By far the largest project in scale was Shannon Chappell’s Golem. Towering up more than 3.5 meters (12′), equipped with articulated weapons and glowing with repurposed LEDs it was an unbeatable showstopper. See more specs and details about it here.
