I have a rather nice little collection of Game Boys as I had a bit of an obsession with them as a kid (my Tetris addiction probably didn’t help) but if there is one thing I don’t have in my collection and would die to have in my collection, it would be a giant wearable Game Boy that is playable and uses giant Game Boy cartridges.
I’m not sure who this awesome guy is or where he was spotted (if you know, please let me know in the comments below so I can give him the credit he definitely deserves), but a few days ago on reddit I came across these pictures of a guy sporting some epic Game Boy cosplay that is actually playable!
I’m not sure just how many games this guy has for people to play on his huge Game Boy costume, but I at least know there is Tetris, Dr. Mario and Donkey Kong Land judging by the second picture with another guy holding up two of the giant cartridges.
And while you can play this giant Game Boy, I’m not sure how practical it is given the size of the controls, especially for a game like Tetris. The back-lit screen is also a bit of an authenticity killer but it does make it look better than the picture where the back-lit doesn’t seem to be turned on so I can live with it. Back-lit or not, this Game Boy costume is epic! Whoever this guy is, he is my hero!
