Description
About 8 or 9 foot tall Jack Skellinton cosplay (I was on stilts). All hand made, i even made the stilts.

Went around Expo with my friend Paris who was dressed as sally (she brought a basket that she kept me extended arms in when i got tired xD).

Had some problems with my stilts to start with, my foot became unstuck .... it was scary but all was fixed thanks to the magical substance of duck tape :D (both my feet were then fassened down lol).
However wearing this around Expo was interesting lol As soon as i stood up and had the mask on i was literally swarmed for pictures however, I was unable to stop moving coz if i did i would fall over so this meant i had to hop from foot to foot (it was tiring). But all in all it turned out well, i hope to improve the mask and the shirt for next time.

Aww Thanks for the compliments :3
As for the people who asked how i walked on the stilts, I actually only started to walk on stilts a week before expo lol i literally made the stilts, then practiced walking on them in my backgarden using my washing line as a stabliser then went off to expo. Now that i look back on it i realise how bad it couldve gone xD but i love stilting now :D
