Since Avengers: Infinity War drew in so many fans, Thanos has become a favorite villain. Some love to hate him, others feel for him based on what his storyline turned out to be.
Regardless of how fans feel about him, he is a bit difficult to cosplay as. To make the basis of Thanos, you really do need something purple and larger than life.
@KittieCosplay recently begun a very unique Thanos Cosplay which combines the evil fiend with a popular mascot, McDonald’s Grimace. He really is the perfect blank purple canvas of which to create Thanos. Now, fans are dubbing the costume Grimos.
*SNAP* You’re dust! 😈 Can’t believe #BananaSteve & I were able to pull off making a full Grimace-Thanos aka #Grimos cosplay! Debuted today at #MontereyComicCon. #McVengers #Grimace #Thanos #McDonalds #Avengers #InfinityWar #InfinityGauntlet #MarvelComics #Marvel #cosplayer pic.twitter.com/F2ErlcbUfl

The cosplay premiered at Monterey Comic Con and comes complete with the Mad Titan’s golden helmet and same armor. It’s all in the details. Check out those McNugget-shaped Infinity Stones in his oven mitt Gauntlet.

This tweet included a fake Wendy’s tweet throwing shade at Burger King Burgers, showing one vanishing at the hand of Thanos! Brilliant!

Where will you be able to catch Grimos next? In one tweet, it’s expressed that the team is trying to get grimos to SDCC!
At the moment are working on trying to get Grimos to SDCC. For sure other McVengers will be there. Thanks for the interest!
