Construction of the fan tribute sculpture took 3 years and cost about 70,000 yen
Nico Nico user Yasu has published a video documenting the construction process of a human-sized, fan-tribute sculpture of Lilith, the 2nd Angel from Hideaki Anno and Studio Gainax's ground-breaking 1995 anime TV series, Neon Genesis Evangelion. The video consists of an extensive photo collage accompanied by music and sound cues from the series.
Yasu admits that the creation of the sculptor took about three years to complete and cost between 60,000 and 70,000 yen ($504.73 - 588.85 US). Yasu also states that at the time of the creation, they were not a professional sculptor, but rather a clerk at a video game arcade, where the sculpture was displayed for a period of time.
