I have dreamed about becoming a creature like this since I saw “The Dark crystal”( landstriders scene) when I was a child. Way into my adult life now I went to see circ de soleil, while watching the blank face crutch walkers, it hit me, why don’t I combine them both. When I did a search on line it turns out there are others with the same idea (Thank you Garen and Mellissa for the info aka. Stilt Spirits). This creature I refer to as “what nightmares are made of” is 7 feet tall and primarily made of recycled foam. An Old Foam Eggcrate Mattress, duct tape (that has been spray painted black) coffee dyed cheese cloth and dollar store spooky cloth. I used old wooden crutches, I modified to make taller since they only go to 6.6ft. The most expensive thing was the dry wall stilts that I bought, which I found out is cheaper than making stilts from wood. My dream/nightmare has come true!

Would love to make this for someone to wear for our charity haunt. Is it terribly uncomfortable walking in that position for long? We are in Florida and I imagine it would be quite hot to wear also.

Mads4Mandy says:

I have a couple questions (same ones I asked GeneralTampon, but never got a response). How tall are your stilts, and how are you holding onto the crutches? From the actual handles or the tops where your underarms go?

I loved the Dark Crystal!! Your creation also reminds me of something from a Hayao Miyazaki film like Spirited Away. Very cool and very creepy!
