Aw, this is absolutely the cutest Mechwarrior cosplay you’ll ever see. It features Ryan and his son Geraint in a costume that, according to his wife, was planned way before the child was even born.
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.
It’s designed to look like a Sunder mech and is made from a PVC framework covered with cardboard. There are also some foamboard details to complete the design.
