DIY BioShock Big Daddy Costume

The guy over at Volpin Props in Atlanta has created a fully functioning "Big Daddy" costume, taken from one of this year's runaway games, 'BioShock'. If you go to the site, you can see the construction pic-by-pic in great detail by proprietor Harrison Krix, resulting in a convincing version of the suit.

Here's what Krix himself had to say about it:

I finally lost my mind enough to try to tackle one of these big guys. For those unfamiliar, Big Daddys are the protectors of the Little Sisters in Rapture, an underwater city devoid of morality which has degenerated into chaos and insanity. They are huge, fast, strong, and as it turns out, a solid pain in the ass to build.

I will not ruin the suit by showing the final product. You'll have to go to the web site to see it, and believe me it's worth it. Volpin Props can be commissioned for props, but unfortunately for right now, he's entirely booked up until 2010.
