Many cosplayers and others have created some incredible costumes inspired by Transformers—both the toys/cartoons and Michael Bay’s movie franchise. But pulling off a costume that not only allows someone to transform into something, but transform into an actual working vehicle? That’s much more difficult to pull off successfully.
The best thus far may just be someone who goes by NOLATron, a New Orleans street performer who was captured on video performing for some kids in Ann Arbor, Michigan recently. Their suit goes from standing to working vehicle and back seamlessly, and is impressive to see.
You can check out a video of the working transformer costume in action below.
The suit itself is not directly related to the Transformers franchise, though of course there is a Bumblebee vibe to it. The suit was actually inspired by a similar creation out west from a few years back, but this one clearly works a little better.
