Scott Holden doesn’t kid around when it comes to constructing costumes. A few years ago, he made a tauntaun. This year, he tackled something on the same scale: an AT-ST Walker. Yes, he is the most awesome.
First he ordered a small Snap-tite plastic model and used it to reverse engineer all the parts through a very tedious process with calipers and a protractor. Scaled to a factor of 20, he drew and cut the parts from corrugated plastic. Lots of foam, time, and paint later, he had an AT-ST Walker he could walk under and control.
See more photos of the costume and a video of it in action after the break.
