About a month ago, I shared a look at a rancor costume Jeremy Fisher was making for San Diego Comic-Con. He took his massive creature cosplay inspired by the beast in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi to the convention two weeks ago and got tons of attention. He’s been working on the gigantic outfit for a year and estimates that he spent $2,000 making the beast. He’s shared some photos of the complete rancor, which you can see above and below. He was able to move in it, and while he posed with hundreds of Comic-Con attendees, he was kept cool with USB-powered fans.
