Ghost in the Shell cosplay usually involves dressing as one of the characters in the anime — someone like Motoko Kusanagi. However, some fans at Onomichi 2015 went outside the box and dressed as Tachikoma. The Tachikoma are artificial intelligence robots that sort of look like spiders. The cosplayers — one of them is @Naltonz on Twitter — are inside the combat walkers and move on rollers. The mini machines have several moving parts, and you can see them in action in the videos below.
