So I know this very cool guy by the name of Alfred Norris. I met him, electronically at least, when he contacted me about commissioning a set of hand mechanics from me. When he told me what said mechanics were for... I can't tell you how excited I was to start the project! Al and I designed the hands together and I just finished fabricating them last night.


Al is making an 8 foot tall hulk costume. I've seen the concept art etc. and it's going to be amazing. When he has finished it, I'll see if I can either get him to post something on Crafster or I'll share it on his behalf. For now, there's a video of the "Skeleton" of the Hulk in action at the end of this post. Hulk's head is going to be located above the head of the "Puppeteer" and his shoulders above where the Puppeteer's elbows are in the video.

Without knowing how tall I am, it's probably hard for folks to get a sense of the scale of these giant mitts. Here's a picture that should help a bit (photo was taken before the hand's were 100% complete)


I'm just shy of 6 feet, so with these on my arm-span is increased to approximately 9.5 feet (Hulk's arms are proportionally larger than a human's when compared to his height... more like a Gorilla than a man).






While this post is *technically* about a costume that's currently in production, my portion of it (the hand skeletons) is complete Smiley

Hey, since you're one of those moderator-type-people, do you happen to know how to embed a youtube video on Crafster? (if it is even possible to do so) Smiley
