Ryan Bowen had the idea of creating a life-sized suit inspired from MechWarrior BattleTech, a game he used to play during his high-school years. Players of this game take control of a single BattleMech and combat other BattleMechs, infantry, tanks, and more from within the cockpit of their machine.
He began working on the brilliantly designed costume (see below) approximately two months before his son Geraint was born. Things have turned out quite nicely for the now six-month-old baby . . . and you will see why.

This is definitely an amazing family costume. This dad gets our award for best father and son costume!
