Forget about reducing our demand for lumber, there's no better reason to recycle than this remarkably detailed and accurate Robocop costume made entirely from cardboard, glue, and about twice as much dedication.

Built and worn by Comic Book Girl 19 for this year's Comic Con and Dragoncon, the costume took one month to design, and since most grocery stores give away cardboard by the truckload, the total budget was about $117 in Epson ink cartridges. Compared to the original Robocop costume, this homage was lightweight and easy to carry, although it wouldn't take long for the seedy underbelly of Detroit to figure out that a garden hose could easily foil this crimefighter's efforts.
