Cosplay Duo Creates Life Size Ghost in the Shell Tachikoma


Halloween is upon us in full swing, with the perfect excuse to dress up as our favorite characters or creatures. They can be simple costumes or complex. But if you really want the ultimate challenge, why not try a robot? Better yet, how about crafting a life sized robot? A two-man team recently showcased their latest inspiration from the series Ghost in the Shell, with the robot character Tachikoma.

Meet Tachikoma:

Based in Kansai, Japan, cosplayers Heinz and Moetetsu specialize in making some pretty cool robots and armor-intensive cosplays. Aside from Tachikoma, the other robot inspired creations include Metal Gear and Armored Core.

The cosplay duo, called CosTeam5, got to show off the blue character in Osaka at the Super Robocos Expo, an all-robot cosplay gathering:

Here is a making-of video of CosTeam5 bringing Tachikoma to life:
