Meet “Mechdaddy 2018”, The Ultimate Daddy-Daughter Mechwarrior Costume

A very creative father (and uncle) who goes by the name Griddlock Cosplay built an absolutely brilliant Mechwarrior costume that requires both a child and an adult in order to make it work. There is a fully functioning fan and Arduino controlled LED lights to make the costume more realistic. The front of the costume has a hinged doorway that lets a kid enter and sit at the controls, while the rest of the costume goes to the grownup.

“I built this costume for the Edmonton Comic Expo 2018, but also because I have kids, nieces, and nephews, and a costume like this scores mega points, doesn’t it?,” says artist.
