More sci-fi cosplay badness from prop-maker, costumer, and MAKE pal Shawn Thorsson. I haven’t played Dead Space 2, yet, but I enjoyed the first one, and I have to say that protagonist Isaac Clarke’s “Engineering RIG suit” appears to have changed little for the sequel. Lots of build details over at Shawn’s blog, and more pics in his Flickr set. [Thanks, Shawn!]

Update: If you’re curious about the mind of the man who made this (and who wouldn’t be, honestly?) don’t miss Shawn’s Halloween guest editorial How-To: Achieve Total Halloween Domination!
