We all know how much time, money, and energy cosplayersÂ put into their costumes to make them as accurate as possible. However, when you’re trying to dress as a character who can shrink to the size of a bug or grow 65 feet, you can only achieve a certain level of authenticity–with your costume that is, because size is all relative. You can turn a good get-up into a great one with the right prop, like this cosplayer did by building a 1/4th scale mini truck to recreate the one an oversized Scott Lang used to drive through San Francisco in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

This wonderful and creative piece comes from Red-Pym Cosplay out of Switzerland; heÂ wanted to build a prop from the film exclusively connected to Paul Rudd’s Scott. He also wanted something he could bring to cons, and the result is this replica truck (complete with the hole in the windshield); it’s overÂ seven-feet long and weighs more than 77 pounds. It also relies heavily on magnets to keep it together; they make it easier to breakdown and reassemble for travel.
First Con with the Ant-Man Truck over. He survived everything. No damage to man and machine. When and where the next mission takes place is still open. #AntManAndTheWasp #craftyourfandom #avengerscosplay #antmancosplay #costueme pic.twitter.com/eOvTLCziFI

We’re not the only ones massively impressed by this; it even caught the eye of Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed.
