The Best Costumes on the Web

Page 1 | 2 | 3

Below is a collection of the top costumes on the web. This list is the result of my attempt to assemble a catalog of giant, awe-inspiring costumes.

I don't claim for this list to be perfect. A million costumes have been made for stage and movies and the Olympic opening ceremonies and none of them are on this list. Full disclosure: five of my own costumes are showcased below. Is that against the list-making rules?

Kevin Kelm's Mecha costume.

The web page for this nine-foot wolf robot includes well-written construction notes.

More of Kevin's costumes, including one with a carbon-fiber helmet and electronic circuit schematics at his costume site:

Big Daddy from BioShock video game
http://volpinprops.blogspot.com/2009/09/big-daddy-bioshock.html

This monster is the incredible work of Harrison Krix, a propmaker out of Atlanta. Excellent write up of his construction techniques. He doesn't do anything half-assed.

He has many other builds on his site, each more incredible than the last.
