GORILLA SUIT Let’s Start building.
For those designing their own gorilla costume, I feel the main task is the body shape, that is, make is big. Big shoulders, huge chest, large upper arms (longer if possible), shorter legs (created by dropping the crotch lower.)
The choice is how to add the padding. Most seem to add to a lycra body. Some sew fabric over the padding onto the bodysuit. Some say use two body suits, the outer one slightly larger — sewing the padding between. That sounds clean, but logistically difficult.
I am most willing to chat with those who have succeeded in bulding their own gorilla suit. Or at least are trying.
