New York-based artist Peter Kokis, aka Brooklyn Robotworks, is famous for creating incredible robot costumes just by using everyday objects found in your home.
“I manipulate plastic from different – but typical – containers, and use ordinary household, hardware, gym, petshop & discount items: things you’ll find in your kitchen, bathroom, closets, fridge, and junk drawer. Stuff that’s readily available to us all. Look closely at my parts and you’ll say, ‘hey, I have that at home!” Kokis wrote on his website.
The suits of armor are incredibly detailed that you would never believe they are actually made of ordinary household items. He recycled plastic materials, transforming them into robots and bringing these characters to life by actually performing them.
Kokis said that one machine from The Terminator took him about 500 hours to finish. After completion, he will wear the robot costumes and perform in public places around the city.
