Just realized that I’ve been bombarding you all with cosplay WIP photos, but haven’t actually announced this at all!

So this is The Assembly Line, the bigger, better, badder successor to the old TransCostumers (which is outdated for too many reasons for me to even be able to quantify). It’s a mecha cosplay and genre fan forum for people who are interested in making their favorite Transformer, Gundam, cyborg, or suit of costume armor, because that sort of stuff is what we all collectively specialize in.

We’ve got a small wiki, databases of costumes organized by construction material, we’ve got tutorials, and a whole host of members who are so excited and passionate about this stuff that they’re constantly experimenting and documenting every tiny detail of their successes and failures for the rest of the internet to learn from.

I stared TCos back in 2009 because there were NO resources for anything related to Transformers cosplay, and I’ve met some really amazing folks in the fandom through this site since—many of the original members are still around, sharing their expertise, and have even gone on to make money from their talent.

Here’s some of the stuff our members have made over the years:
