Apple’s fan base has been centered in the U.S., Europe, and Japan for most of the company’s existence, but now that Apple is making big strides in China, we’re seeing what happens when that culture gets a chance to run with the idea, too. M.I.C. Gadget published a photo of two Apple fans in the city of Chongqing, one of whom appears to be a Steve Jobs impersonator, while the other is sporting a very cool costume made out of Macs.

It’s the Mac costume that we’re most taken with. It combines pieces from a PowerMac G4 to make a something that resembles armor with an iMac G3 for a head. That said, it could also be an alternate universe in which Jonathan Ive was George Lucas’s costume designer for the Storm Troopers of Star Wars—that Jony Ive was nine when Star Wars was released is immaterial.
Whatever the case, it would make a fine Halloween costume here in the States and we wish we had one—that we’d need it to be substantially bigger is also immaterial.
