In response to our rants yesterday about this insane Predator costume, readers sent us a link to the following video that trumps it – by a million.
I’m ready to trade fathers after seeing what Carsten Riewe assembled for his 13-month-old daughter.
Created for the Karneval Parade in Germany, what you see below is the little girl “driving” the Caterpillar P-5000 Powerloader from James Cameron’s 1986 Aliens.
The arms and legs are full moveable and the top-light and LED were powered by an 12 Volt battery pack stored in the backpack. The on/off switch is in the left arm. Also in the backpack a Bluetooth boombox is installed to play mechanical robot sound fx or music if preferred. It took 100 working hours to finish the costume and I built it for the “Karneval”-Parade in my hometown in Germany February 2014 . My 13 months old daughter enjoyed to be carried and moved in her harness safely.
It looks pretty safe until he walks the Powerloader into the street and a car flies by (now that’s suspense!).
