Wow. That just about sums up the first word that comes to mind when you lay eyes on this incredible fan-made lifesize tauntaun costume. Head on over to the Official StarWars.com Blog to read about Star Wars fan Scott Holden and what the process was to design & create this truly amazing costume.
"Getting into the costume is difficult, it requires the ‘rider’ to first put the stilts on. Then the ‘handler’ lifts the body up and over the rider where the rider then has to put the backpack straps on. Then the handler runs to both sides of the costume and snaps the fur onto the hips hiding the riders real legs and stilts."
And check out the video below of his creation in action!
Simply awesome job, Scott. Extremely well done, and we hope to see you and your tauntaun steed at the upcoming Celebration V Costume Contest!
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
