The above video shows an intrepid pair of costume enthusiasts who decided to freak the hell out of people for Halloween. Their costumes are on four stilted legs, creating an unreal effect that had people asking if they were robots. Seriously.
No, it’s not actually Guillermo Del Toro behind this, but as the man has an affinity for creatures like these, I think he’d approve. The designers were said to actually be inspired by The Dark Crystal, and I’m sure if Jim Henson was alive, he’d be giving them a thumbs up for their effort. And you know, I even see a little bit of Hayao Miyazaki in here too.
Very scary until a stilt catches a rock and you go tumbling down the sidewalk like the most socially awkward monster of all time.
