This kid's costume is undeniably awesome, but I'm not quite sure it's what he wanted. Quoth his Dad:
So my middle son asked to be a robot for Halloween. We had a great time building this but I believe he may be a bit too tired to eat candy.
Then again perhaps not.
This, my friend, is not a "robot", it is a mech walker. At my school, if you didn't know the difference between a robot and a mech, all you'd earn is the communal snort of nasal contempt — a derisive "LOL" soaked in the phlegm of a thousand nerds — and a long walk through the slide rule gauntlet.
Otherwise, an excellent costume, Young Master Chicken Walker. I'm only curious about what the kid inside is saying to himself. Is it griping, or some sort of onomatopoeic robot noise?
