In the category of costumes I haven’t seen in the wild before: a flying monkey costume from The Wizard of Oz. Well, it’s specifically a flying baboon from Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful. Talented cosplayer Beyond Creative Costumes! is responsible for the build. Besides the flying baboon, he’s dressed as character such as Batman from Batman Beyond and Ruby Rhod from The Fifth Element.
For the flying baboon costume, he began with a pre-made baboon mask and modified so it fit onto the front of hood. He made the bodysuit from crushed-velvet gray spandex, made baboon feet to wear, and covered the ensemble with fur. He also came up with a five-part template for the wings — he constructed them so they could be folded in and out and then crafted the finished wings from fabric on a frame. You can see a few in-progress shots below.
