Giant Power Loader costume can toss us out the airlock any day

Want an elaborate costume for this upcoming Halloween? A huge, really elaborate one? Well, Instructables user alexthemoviegeek has just the thing: a faithful recreation of the massive Power Loader exoskeleton from the movie Aliens.

Surprisingly, Alex's Power Loader doesn't need a Hollywood budget to get 'er done as he only spent $225 using PVC pipe, pipe insulation, wood and foam. Oh, and paint: lots and lots of yellow paint.
