This T-Rex skeleton costume is absolutely insane

Holy hell, is Jamie Price's massive tyrannosaurus rex skeleton costume the ultimate in dinosaur cosplay. As you can see in the video above, the skeleton is a giant puppet that the user operates.

Should you desire to dress as a ghost thunder lizard for weddings and graduations, Price has written instructions on how to build your own 25-pound dead dinosaur. Be forewarned that several buckets of elbow grease are required:

It is over 10 feet tall and 14 feet long! There are over 140 individual parts that were created. It is built from a flexible foam with a welded steel/aluminum support substructure. Most of the parts were cut using a CNC router with a few cut by hand using a dremel and regular router. Total build time was around 130 hours at a materials/machine time cost of $550.


I want to build a dozen of these, drench them in glow-in-the-dark paint, and fly out to Ibiza and give a bunch of tripping ravers heart attacks. "This island, it is a dinosaur burial ground!"
