I dig the cosplay scene. Most of you are well aware of this, as I happen to theme my hobby around a certain nocturnal avenger who punches crime and mental disorders with rubber fists of vengeance. It’s hard work making an outfit, and at the end of the day, you can be certain of one thing: Some other bugger is going to put all your hard work to shame.

Yes sir, that is indeed Metal Gear Rex costume you see above. The only thing missing, is a dead cybernetic ninja to scrape off of its foot. Created by the team over at the Pro Voltage cosplay group, Metal Gear Rex is a stunning and faithful replica that needs more than one set of hands to assemble properly.
It’s magnificent, and I genuinely can’t get enough of it. Here’s another look at the completed costume:
I don’t even want to know how hot it must get inside there. Still, awesome is as awesome does.
