Watch This Woman Transform Into a Giant Metal Gear Solid Robot

by Amanda Dingyuan Hou | Sunday, October 5, 2014

Since October 2013, Ruby Taki, a Japanese cosplay enthusiast working at a real estate company in New York City, has spent her free time working on this Metal Gear REX robot costume, featured in the video game Metal Gear Solid. At the upcoming New York Comic Con, she is going to compete with her hand-crafted robot outfit. A week before the competition, we filmed her putting on her eight-foot-tall costume for a photo shoot at Northside Piers in Williamsburg.
