Death Stranding was a phenomenon in its own right, but maybe it’s best to not let life imitate art by putting your baby in an incubator. Admittedly, doing so is likely to win you a lot of points at your local geek culture convention, but it’s probably something that’s best left to the professionals. Thankfully, cosplayer and prop builder The_Bai_Ying, is pretty skilled at his craft.
As reported by Kotaku, The_Bai_Ying has taken extreme measures to protect his child from the bad air quality in their home of Shanghai. The prop builder decided the best way to avoid potentially harming his child was to build a pod – very similar to the one seen in Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding.
The pod is supposedly being used to transport his child to the hospital, and is fashioned from a backpack complete with a fully functional air filter. It has a small inbuilt screen which can be used to check on the air quality inside of the pod, and The_Bai_Ying can make adjustments with an in-built glove, protecting the pod from outside contamination.
It was first spotted on the Chinese version of TikTok, tagged with “#deathstranding” and “#coronavirus.”
The TikTok-like clip shows The_Bai_Ying wearing (using?) the suit from the comfort of his own home, so it’s not clear whether or not he’s actually using the device to transport the young infant out and about, or if it’s just part of his latest cosplay.
SoraNews recently reported that the cosplayer was spotted shopping in Shanghai dressed in a full HAZMAT suit, but since that suit featured the Resident Evil Umbrella Corp. logo, that time was probably just for the ‘gram.
Please, please don’t try and recreate your own Death Stranding-style baby pod at home.
