Ryan Nagata @ryannagata is an artist from Los Angeles (US) who makes amazing spacesuits. He created this Apollo A7L suit for his daughter. It's even in 1/3 scale! It's not an early Halloween costume. He built this for Spacefest. I'm not even sure it's considered cosplay anymore. It goes beyond that... #apollo #art #artist #astronaut #cosplay
