In Ghost in the Shell, there are A.I. combat walkers called Tachikoma. Inspired by spiders, they don’t exactly lend themselves to cosplay. Unless you get creative.

As Culture Lab points out, a couple of Ghost in the Shell fans Japan recently showed off these outfits.

As you can see, they sat on little roller platforms to move around during a two-kilometer parade.

Don’t think lewd thoughts. Just. Don’t.

Even with that roller, moving in these suits seems difficult and exhausting.

That’s some serious dedication.
