Master costume maker, Shawn Thorsson, wowed the crowds at Maker Faire Bay Area again this year with his impressive Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine costumes. It was amazing, especially being a 40K player, to see these giant armor-clad, genetically-modified super humans patrolling the aisles of Expo Hall. This is the first time these costumes have been seen in public. I can imagine that the folks at sci-fi and game cons will go nuts over them. During the packing up, I took these pics of the costume parts as they waited to be loaded out.
