Costume Contest Winner: MechWarrior Baby Costume

November 3, 2014


This is a video of the MechWarrior 'Sunder' costume father Ryan built for he and his son, Geraint. It is infinitely better than any of the parent/child costumes at the party I went to, but that's because there weren't any children. Or parents. It was really just me playing the new Borderlands and Costume Quest 2 on the couch all night. "I thought you said you were going to a party." I got uninvited last minute. Well, technically I was turned me away at the door for never being invited in the first place. It reminded me a lot of high school.

"My husband had this costume planned for several years, long before we had a child. The inspiration was a computer game he played in high school. When we found out we were having a baby, he got to work. Ryan sketched out the rough designs probably two months before Geraint was born," said Cassandra, the wife of the robot-building dad and mother of the robot-piloting baby.

Damn, planning a costume years in advance -- that's hardcore. I'm just hoping not a lot of people see this though because I'm going to do the same thing next year with a Cabbage Patch Doll. THAT COSTUME CONTEST WILL BE MINE. Or maybe somebody will let me borrow their real kid. "Nobody is going to let you borrow their kid." No -- nobody is going to let me borrow their kid again.

Keep going for the short video.

Thanks to B.R.I.A.N., whose name is apparently an acronym. Your parents are weird.

    This is unusual and cruel punishment for that boy, exactly why i'm never having children "is it coz you cant think of a cute holloween costume idea?" i actually had an awesome idea to make my penis look like a chestburster "oh, i bet it involved a trip to the emergency room" No, it worked a bit too well and the little dick-head escaped, i can still hear it scurrying around at night time, in the darkness, taunting me! "dude i think thats your cat" could be, either way i can now only dream of rearing a child for the purpose of theatricality
