Not much to say here other than holy shit is that an amazing Big Daddy costume from Bioshock. It was made by talented lunatic Harrison Krix of Volpin Props, and he details exactly how you can make one yourself here. Whether you have the time, money, willpower, and strength to lug all that shit around — or whether you can find someone willing to be your Little Sister — is entirely up to you. Thanks to SoldierHawk and everyone else who sent in the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
