Velociraptor Fullsuit 1 by Monoyasha Velociraptor Fullsuit 1 by Monoyasha
**I could have made the legs thinner but I wanted to show the muscles and make them look the way it does. Remember this is a human in a suit. It will NOT be perfect.**

Raptor in Action! [link]

There are so many details on this suit to show off, so I have to submit two different collages! xD Keep in mind this was made for someone who is sized differently, and does not fit me perfectly!

The raptor suit was finished up this morning in the wee hours, and today she'll be shipped off to her new owner in TN to be debuted at Dragon Con 2011. So if you're going to that convention, keep an eye out for this Clever Girl. ;D

Head Features:
-Moving Jaw (Mechanics are a secret, please don't ask.)
-Fully sculpted head made of resin and rigid foam for extreme lightness. (Custom mold made)
-Tongue made of flexi foam (custom mold made)
-Teeth are attached to head mold so also made of plastic and extremely light
-Vision ports in the neck so wearer can see very well, while it being somewhat camouflaged.
-Head has 2 fans installed for optimal airflow
-Resin cast eyes handpainted (Custom mold made)
-Airbrushing over the entirety of the head.
-Mouth "flaps" for realism
-Zipper in the back for easy in and out
-Magnets on neck flap to corresponding magnets on suit to hold it down.

Body Features:
-6FT long tail with a foam core that moves in an extremely realistic manner
-Reticulated foam used for a good portion of the foam work for excellent airflow and lightness
-Various degrees of upholstery foam used for the rest
-Fingers are individually carved out and can be moved separately by your own fingers
-Toes are attached to shoes for extreme comfort
-Claws are all made out of plastic, slush cast for lightness (Custom molds made)
-Zipper down the front for easy access in and out
-Fully lined with athletic mesh
-Fully airbrushed
-4 belt loop attachment for the tail to keep it upright and steady
-Velcro and snaps used to keep feet on

All in all the suit only weight 18 lbs, which is really nice, considering what it is. The length is about 6ft, and it's about as tall, so it's a pretty impressive costume. This suit was meant to resemble the raptors in Jurassic Park 1, so no feathers.

How could people NOT like the legs?In truth, I am guessing that raptors' legs were that muscled. So shut up, haters!

deepseacreep Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
this isn't velociraptor its dienonychus, which velociraptor was tragically misidentified as. Velociraptor was only 2 ft tall and coated with feathers.
aneineko Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012
Utahraptor-23 feet long, could be a small one :D
Monoyasha Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
does it really matter...No.. i based this off of the JP serious not the dinosaur >_> If you fully read the description you would know this.
LatinoManInBlack Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2012
Wow. I never thought that I'd see something as awesome as this! That is an amazing Velociraptor costume. I kinda have a fetish for reptilian characters, dinosaurs included. Words cannot express how much I LOVE IT! I bet its owner must be REALLY happy with this costume.

Wait... It looks like a raptor from Jurassic Park. Should I consider this a cosplay or a fursuit?
Monoyasha Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
its more a cosplay. lol
rustedplastic Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
Monoyasha! This is an amazing costume and you are very talented :o
I would also like to ask you how you mounted the resin raptor head atop of your own. Im making a costume with a longer neck and im stuck on that part......what did you do? It works so perfectly!
Keep up the great work!

God, this is the coolest thing ever! I think everything is very well done and made, and the quality shows through! Plus, raptors in general are pretty awesome. And I love how the tail swings back and forth. Such a cool suit!

InfiniteLoup Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011

desbot24 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome! I really like the head; looks like you put a lot of effort into it!

Oh, I have a question for you! I am starting on my own velociraptor costume soon (I've been putting it off for months) and I was wondering if the athletic mesh you used came looking like it has scales (see the pic in the middle with the eye) or if you added them yourself?
Monoyasha Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
That is upholstery fabric; the suit is lined inside with athletic mesh
desbot24 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah ok, that makes more sense =]

Awesome work and, what I'd love to know is how much would something like this cost if I were to suddenly desire one? Which I really do, but GOD I have no money D:

It won the audience award! I saved my claps for it, totally worth it to hear the sudden ROAR of clapping and screaming and yelling when the host asked about this suit.
