It seems like every convention that passes sees cosplay step up a level. But I think it might have peaked at Otakon 2014 with this ridiculously elaborate, beautiful Metal Gear REX costume.

This video shows that the costume is so intricate it needs a team of people just to assemble. When it’s done, you can’t even tell that there’s somebody inside it. Get the stinger missiles!

The costume was made by the Pro Voltage cosplay group, who are well-known for their stunning creations. Here’s a picture of the completed costume:
