A lot of fans walk out of superhero movies wishing they were Wonder Woman or Iron Man, but does the same thing happen with the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park or Jurassic World? Dino cosplay is apparently live, well, and not at all concerned with anatomical accuracy, as these new inflatable thunder lizard costumes reveal.
We can thank those inflatable T-rex costumes for inspiring the latest additions to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom mountain of merchandise. The $US70 ($90) inflatable Blue the Velociraptor costume isn’t bad, and come Halloween it would make for a fun way to stomp around your neighbourhood.
Things go downhill quickly, however, with the $US70 ($90) pteranodon costume, and the $US116 ($149) inflatable triceratops. They both look like Magic Kingdom rejects thanks to the pteranodon’s disappointing wingspan, and the human arms sticking out from behind the triceratops’ head. Perhaps the costume makers forgot that “fix it in post” only applies to digital dinosaurs?
