Cosplayer Kyle, also known as Ex-Shadow, fell in love with BioShock 1 and 2. Because of that, he decided to make Subject Delta’s costume – the character was the first Big Daddy subject bonded to a Little Sister. He owned a 1/12 scale toy of the Big Daddy Alpha series and used it for reference and to scale up the costume pieces. Kyle converted every inch of measurement on the figure to a foot of costume. It’s not a small ensemble. The boots alone were 18 inches long, 6 inches high, and 9 inches wide. You can see a drawing of them below. Kyle used layers of insulation foam to build platforms for his feet and used the material along with expanding foam, fiberglass resin, and more to complete the detailed and massive build.
