Creepy Dark Crystal Garthim Costume

The Dark Crystal is full of fantastical creatures, and the Garthim are some of the creepiest. The tentacled beings served the Skeksis, and I wouldn’t want to cross paths with one. Talented builder Ryan Wells created a Garthim costume for San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s just as creepy as the ones in the film. Ryan started work on the outfit on April 21 and finished it yesterday, July 7. He completed the build just in time for Comic-Con, and I’m envious of anyone who gets to see the costume in person. Look how in moves in this video on Facebook; it has a pretty impressive range.

Ryan’s Garthim has glowing purple eyes. They’re made from transparent Worbla and LEDs. He installed the lights and fans inside the head and left himself plenty of room around the eyes so he can actually see. There’s a pic showing the eye detail below.

Ryan documented the project thoroughly; you can see several photos in this Facebook album.
