You wanna talk about an uncomfortable costume, but man were they fun. I am trying to talk my wife it to doing a version 2. It may take some convincing.

The body is a cardboard box, paper-mached. To make the hard groves it was twisted (almost like dreadlocks of newspaper) and the more paper mached over to smooth. The legs were vinyl covers foam.
