2019 Costume - Yoshi & Mario (with Video)

A costume I spent far too much time putting together for my son, using what I picked up from the Stan Winston puppet-building courses!  The Yoshi is actually a fully functioning puppet on its own, but i decided adding robotics to control it would be a little too much for a 5-year old's halloween costume.

The Yoshi head is carved foam, covered with Anton fleece.  The insides are cobbled together from a toddler safety harness, foam floor mats, and some wood framing.  Unfortunately, the kid was too wiggly to get the legs to fit right in the pictures and the video.  Need to safety pin the green legs to the green body to complete the illusion.  But... it's enough to get the idea!
