Amazing Pacific Rim cosplay

Brooklyn Typhoon 2

(From Kotaku) If you haven’t seen Pacific Rim, there’s a Chinese mech called Crimson Typhoon.

Well, this is the Brooklyn Typhoon. It may not be as big as its inspiration, but its made of way more interesting stuff.

Built by Brooklyn Robot Works, it took 550 hours to build, and weighs in at 155 pounds.

Here’s a list of just some of the stuff that went into building such an elaborate outfit:

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, ski goggles, football shoulder pads, 6 shinguards (3 types), 2 hockey leg guards, wall outlet plate, 3 vitamin cases (2 types), 3 manicure bowls, 3 doorknob wall guards, hand towel holder, 4 bicycle splashguards (2 types), 25 turnbuckles, corner paint applicator, slotted ladle, 2 faucet strainers, paper towel holder, 3 screen door latches, handheld spotlight, 2 flashlights, closet pole mounts, lots of bottlecaps, lots of knobs & pull handles, lots and lots of plastic from trashcans, buckets & food containers… and a whole lotta inspiration!
