Check out Ryan Bowen and Geraint’s Mech warrior Halloween costume made from cardboard, PVC, and Velcro. This costume deservedly received the nickname “MechDaddy”. Daddy is the mech and the little guy is the pilot although he doesn’t seem sure what to do with his new found toy! These guys created a kick butt costume and stole our hearts in the process!
Bowen’s wife explains the concept on Imgur, “My husband had this costume planned for several years, long before we had a child. The inspiration was a computer game he played in high school. When we found out we were having a baby, he got to work. Ryan sketched out the rough designs probably two months before Geraint was born. With so much baby stuff coming in the mail, we had plenty of boxes for him to work with, so he just had to buy a few things to make it.”
Talk about a real labor of love. <3
