The HRP-4C, one of the creepiest and most realistic humanoids out there, was intended to become a fashion model from the start. And now the robot did make its debut during a fashion show in Japan, giving a whole new meaning to the word “bridezilla”.

The robot walked down the catwalk in a “bridal fair” in a hotel in Osaka. Needless to say, the thing still moves and looks very creepy. She’s made by Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and has 30 motors in her body (another eight are in her face). And she’s quite petite, too: The bridal robot is 158cm tall and weighs 43kg.

I’m guessing we will see this humanoid on a cat walk more often in the future, as Japan has a penchant for fashion robots anyway.

Watch the robot in action in the videos below.
