Pacific Rim Crimson Typhoon Cosplay Isn’t Worn by Triplets

by


Peter Kokis aka Brooklyn Robot Works made a shiny costume based on Crimson Typhoon, China’s ace against the kaiju in Pacific Rim. The costume is far from perfect – the proportions and even the colors are off, and it’s missing its trademark blades – but it’s still an impressive piece, especially when you find out what it’s made of.

Peter calls his costume the Brooklyn Typhoon. It took him a total of 550 hours to build. It probably takes him as long to walk a mile in it because it weighs 152lb. Peter says that his mini-jaeger is made from an assortment of everyday objects, including “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” and more.
