Wen Weg Wun Dar Wun, a.k.a. Wun Wun, is a giant and wildling in Game of Thrones. Redditor Vgal120 decided to become the character for Halloween. She does not have the stature of a giant, so she constructed a frame from cardboard and tape (you can see it below along with a couple of other build photos) and practically doubled her height with it. She modified plastic pretzel containers to make large legs and added a cardboard torso. She kept the legs in place with suspenders.
As for Wun Wun’s face, she started by using Plastilina to sculpt over a plain white plastic mask. When the sculpt was completed and hardened, she applied paper mache over it before painting and adding the facial hair (she got a black wig from Goodwill and glued it on strand by strand).

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
