The video game Shadow of the Colossus has some memorable creatures known as colossi. One of them is the Quadratus. It’s a mix between a bull and a mammoth and looks like a giant walking stone. It’s covered in moss — the beast is sort of like a cliff with legs. Instagram user @vanlirious_kitty cosplayed as the colossus at the recent Otakon and did an excellent job of scaling the creature down to size.
