Baymax Stormtrooper

Ben Garcia built this costume that’s a mashup of Baymax from Big Hero 6 and a Star Wars Stormtrooper! Look for it at O Comic Con, July 8-10 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Not only is it clever, but also professional-grade, because Garcia is an special effects artist and founder of Wetworks SFX Studios. He told The Daily Dot about building it.

As for wearing the unwieldy looking costume, Garcia admitted that he'd have to stand through the cons he plans to bring it to. While the small legs do extend up into the costume, they only allow the wearer to take 3-4 inch steps, just like the real Baymax.

Despite looking heavy, the costume is actually light. Garcia used EVA foam to build the armor atop a wire frame, remarking that four sheets of the foam retail for under $10. Because of that, he was able to keep the cost for the project fairly low.
