Pacific Rim was just released five months ago, and cosplayers have already built challenging Jaeger pilot outfits. That’s because people who build costumes are awesome. Builder Peter Kokis constructed his take on Crimson Typhoon in 550 hours and he used any part he could scavenge, including the following items:
2 rat traps, 7 mousetraps (2 types), 53 toy truck wheels, 2 business card holders, hockey helmet, 2 plungers, rotating lawn sprinkler, 4 egg slicers, 4 ice scrapers, 4 ladles, 4 slotted spoons, camping thermos, toilet flush valve, 8 ice skate blade guards (2 types), 2 baseball throat guards, trashcan foot pedal, 2 spoon draincups, 2 blender bases, 4 hair cutter spacers, 2 kneepads, thermos base…
And the list keeps going. Look out, Kaiju!
