It turns out that Ellen Ripley isn’t the only awesome lady who can operate the Power Loader from the movie Aliens. Jason Smith created this very impressive power loader Halloween costume for himself to wear while his infant daughter sits in the driver’s seat.
"My highest priority was keeping my little girl safe, so the costume was designed for mobility and quick exit in case of emergency. The boots are basically cardboard slippers that could pop right off. With a shrug of my shoulders, I could pop the arms right off. What you can’t see from the video is that there are no bottoms on the robot arms, so my human arms were completely free and unimpeded. I could leave the claws hanging idle from the shoulder joints while I could address any of my girl’s needs. I would have had to take the suit off to changer her diaper, though!"
Jason’s daughter looks so comfy that we suspect she might even have a Class-2 rating. What a cute little overachiever.
