This Star Wars Cosplay Suit Cost $2,000 and Took a Year to Build


With mottled polyurethane flesh, detachable limbs, and a few USB-powered fans, a Rancor from Star Wars lurched to life on the streets of San Diego for Comic-Con 2016. The suit was a yearlong effort by L.A.–based animator Jeremy Fisher, who sank around $2,000 into building it. But if the throngs of fans and cosplayers at Comic-Con were any indication, it was worth it — even if some kids were clearly creeped out.
