Meet The World Champions Of Muppet Cosplay

Not that that's an actual thing. I just made it up. Which makes me the judge, and these guys the winners. You disagree, go make your own damn championship.

Reader Jerry (who took the pics) sent these in. The two guys in the suits are props and costume builder Brady Gage and his pal David Parker.

The second-best part is that Beaker has an animatronic mouth, just like the real puppet. The best part is that the pair are part of the cosplaying Portland Superheroes Coalition, who do community work like visiting hospitals.

If you need proof that there are humans inside, and not just giant hands with a sense of humour, below is a "heads off" shot. Which is as horrifying as it is informative when you only focus on the detatched Muppet heads.
