Costume Information

Awards : First prize at the London film and comic con 2011
Time Taken : 6 Months

Buckbeak the hippogryth from the well known Harry potter movies.

Buckbeak is a quadsuit (you hold on to stilts to give the effect of a four legged animal).Now with boosters on his back legs that level out my body there is no need to worry about the stilts looking too long.

He was my most complex suit i have ever done.He's has real pigeon feathers on his head (feathers found under trees then taken home and washed 2X) and a heavly padded body maily around the legs/hips and sholders.With a fan built into his neak and LED'S inside his eyes he can really creep people out.

He was first worn at the London film and comic con 2011 and hopfuly going to the October London MCM Expo 2011 to meet his outher quadsuit buddies.

Whoa looks amazing! Brilliant idea for a costume! Wish I could see it in person!

oh, wow, what an imposing looking costume! The found pigeon feathers are a great addition, they make him look more believable. I like his 'birdy' front legs very much-- did you use a kind of tape to get that ribbed effect on the legs or is it painted on?

Fantastically done, I liked how you used such diverse techniques and clearly spent a lot of time and effort on it.
