Creation of BioShock Big Daddy Costume

BioShock is a highly acclaimed first-person shooter set in a metropolis built under the sea that has degenerated into chaos and insanity. Big Daddys are the protectors of the Little Sisters in the fantastically unsettling underwater city.

On why he started the Big Daddy build, Harrison said “I finally lost my mind enough to try to tackle one of these big guys.” The complex project was “a solid pain in the ass to build.” It took almost 500 hours to complete the project.
