This may be the most inventive example of a gender switch in the realm of cosplay. Major league cosplayer Nona Neon Cosplay pulled a Rule 63 on the uber-masculine lead giant robot Gipsy Danger from last summer’s Giant Robots vs Kaiju movie, PACIFIC RIM.
Synopsis:As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. – (Source)
I am geeking out for this movie! Giant Robots piloted by humans as they fight against giant monsters…anyone else immediately think that this is just Voltron (the version with the space cars not the cats) under a different name? Not that there is anything wrong with that mind you. The premise for Pacific Rim is just ridiculously cool, it has a very appealing cast and it is from the mind of Guillermo del Toro. If Man of Steel wasn’t coming out in the same year I would be majorly obsessed with this movie above all others.
So here I have gathered all of the goodies I have found across the Internetz pertaining to Pacific Rim in one place from the trailer to the viral vids to the promo images.
