I am an Etsy lover. Not only because I sold my scarves on Etsy, but because you can find some amazing and original creations on there that will just blow your mind! One of these creations being this custom BioShock 2 Big Sister costume. I always tend to find myself looking at these things and think...."Okay, that's easy, I can make myself one." I know in reality, there's no way I can pull of the helmet and the accessories. LooptidLeather was able to pull it off, and pull it off well!
It looks extremely heavy, however it is made out of fiberglass, instead of medal. Great detailing. It runs for a whopping $600.
Here are the details from his Etsy listing on the Big Sister costume:
- The main body is real leather with custom leather straps, metal buckles, rivet and sewn construction.
- The Helmet is a combination of fiberglass, kevlar, metals, and has a plexiglass front "window" with red LEDs to make it glow.
- The Chest plate is a combo of plastics, metals, foam, and more.
- The arm "spike" is real chrome plated metal with a glass tube to keep the Adam in.
- Custom leg braces are only on the outside of the leg to not inhibit walking and movement like actual leg braces do. These were also custom made.
Here is a list of all the pieces included, also you can see the photo of the parts laid out.

Ah, Katamari, your charm and beauty is an inspiration to all that comes in contact with you. This lamp, that resembles a Katamari ball, currently hangs in a museum. Yup, this lamp, made out of 80 miniature chairs and tables, hangs in the Museo del Novecento in Milan. The Nice Ball was not inspired by the NAMCO title, but in my heart, I just want to believe so because it makes the lamp lovable to me that way.
The lamp emits a soft light, beautifully silhouetting the chairs and tables onto walls. This is something that I would love to see in a museum. Fortunately, we have pictures! Click on the thumbnails below to enlarge the images.
