Ape costume at screening of Rise of the Planet of the Apes

This is what we call a true fan! Kurt Weinreich was seen recently at the AMC Westminster Promenade 24 theater (denver) wearing a full Ape costume from the Planet of the Apes movie.

What is very impressive is this is a totally handmade costume (well not the mask we guess…)

>I do charity work with the volunteer group The 501st Legion Mountain Garrison. We have movie replica gear from the Star Wars series, and I decided I wanted to make my own Planet of the Apes costume. I used a full prosthetic latex gorilla mask, prosthetic hair, and created the rifle from wood. This is all homemade.

Very well done Sir!


This costume includes printed upper top with faux fur detail, and mask. Does not include spear, pants, or shoes. This is an officially licensed Planet of the Apes costume.
