BMP Props Takes a Bite, Makes Street Sharks Ripster Costume

Bryan Doell, a.k.a. BMP Props and Costumes, is no stranger to making massive costumes. For MegaCon 2016, he became X-Men’s Juggernaut. He has similarly gargantuan plans for MegaCon 2017 — he’s taking a Street Sharks ensemble to the Florida convention this year. I confess I had to look into Street Sharks. For anyone else who’s not familiar with the property, it’s an animated series that aired in the mid ’90s and featured half-man/half-shark crime fighters. Bryan’s dressing as Ripster, the leader of the Street Sharks.

Now that we’re all in the know, take a moment to appreciate the progress Bryan has made so far. He has the shell of the shark portion of the body done. It’s in two sections, the abs/torso and the head and arms. It all sits on a frame, and Bryan says it’s quite comfortable and light to wear. He’s going to be casting the hands next and eventually adding puppetry to give Ripster moving eyes.

Watch a movement test of the costume and see how flexible the suit is in this Facebook video.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
