Thanks everyone for your kind words.  My husband is a kid's pastor so is used to be a bit crazy.  When he wore this to the 3-year old preschool party, one boy kept trying to figure out how it moved.  He finally looked under the shell and said, "Hey!  There is a person under there!"  Even adults thought someone was under the shell making it move.  It was fun to watch other people try and figure it out.

The legs creeped me out BAD!

"Hey!  There is a person under there!" Oh, Hahahahahaha! That is wonderful!

I must ask, though....how is he supporting all that...Suspenders? It must weigh a significant amount! Never mind....I saw it in the original post that it was straps over his shoulders ..But still could you estimate how much it weighed?

Anyone else reminded of david the gnome? Or some movie I think, with puppets, that had a similar thing. I'm thinking maybe the neverending story?

Anyways, LOVE it. Cheesy
