Gorilla Wear-fare

Saw this amazing costume at the Atlanta Zoo a couple of weekends ago. From a distance, I couldn’t figure out what it was supposed to be, but as I got closer, I saw the wonderfully abstract gorilla.

The guy who was in it was doing a great job mimicking the lumbering walk of a large silverback, and he had the added fun of simultaneously scaring and mesmerizing children… much like mall Santas and clowns do. :)

If you look closely, you can see a little of his face in the head area and his shoes in the stirrups. He was crouched over in what looked like an awkward position, but it might have been more comfortable than it appeared, given the ease with which he moved.
