If you ever thought you were good at cosplay - think again. This guy puts us all to shame, but we still have to love him because he's so incredibly cool.

Shawn Thorsson is a costume designer and prop-maker, and he can build some seriously cool stuff. If you ever need your own Iron Man suit, this is the guy you want. Back in 2008, when the trailer for the first Iron Man movie came out, this guy decided he really needed to make his own suit. It looks pretty much exactly like the original, with glowing eyes and everything.

I don't know about you, but I am envious! The Iron Man suit was the first cosplay Shawn made, but he didn't stop there. The next thing he decided to build was a life-size replica of an ED-209 from RoboCop, and it pretty much looks exactly like the real deal.

If you're a fan of Warhammer 40k you will definitely appreciate the next one. This guy built himself some Power Armor! He dreamt of being a Dark Angel Space Marine, and he made that dream come true. "Repent! For tomorrow you die."

Like I said: This guy puts us all to shame. He truly is a master of his craft, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. If you want to know more about him and his work I recommend checking out this short clip from Wired.
