With Halloween almost here, you've got to make sure you've pinned down this year's perfect costume, right?
Just look at Ryan Bowen and his baby son. Bowen joined forces with his 6-month-old, Geraint, to create this awesome - and insanely cute - robot warrior exoskeleton costume.
Jealousy pangs abound:
Bowen's wife said of the costume:
Ryan built a frame for the body out of PVC and wrapped a cardboard shell around it and secured it to the frame with zip ties. He then cut and sculpted the other pieces out of cardboard, with some foam board details to add a true 3D effect. The joints are all fastened with Velcro cable wraps, and the head and other pieces attach to the main body with Velcro tape. The legs are supported by a belt, which is hidden under the body. His arms slip into the gun pods and he has more Velcro straps on the inside in order to hold them. The feet just fit over his shoes by gluing toilet paper tubes on the inside to take up the extra space.
Apparently, Ryan had the idea of creating a life-sized robot costume for years... And as you can see, things turned out quite nicely for him and Geraint!
Cutest Halloween costume EVER?
