According to Gawker, video game enthusiast, Ryan had this MechWarrior robot pilot costume planned in his head for several years before him and his wife actually had a child. So, basically, the first step in making the costume, was convincing his wife to become pregnant.

How’s that for Halloween dedication? I bet you thought you put in a lot of work by pulling out your sewing machine and a glue gun.

Once STEP ONE PREGNANCY was complete, Ryan began drafting and building his dream costume for his unborn baby to eventually pilot.

I don’t know about you, but I think it was well worth the effort…

Now, that Geraint has fulfilled his destiny at the ripe old age of six months, I hope all the ensuing tantrums, picky eating habits and potty training accidents are worth a lifetime of having a child.

Congrats on your robot pilot, Ryan!
