Hello and welcome to my new blog detailing the build of my Cosplay costume of a Uruk-hai carrying the Hobbit Pippin from a scene in 'The Two Towers' of The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
In this particular scene the Uruk-hai is carrying the Hobbit Pippin on his back in a 'Piggy Back' style. This will involve my own legs being the legs of the Uruk-hai with my arms, shoulders and head as Pippins.
I shall be building a false torso, arms and head for the Uruk-hai and a false body and legs for Pippin clinging to his back.
I'm putting a speaker inside the
Uruks head saying various lines from the movie, with additional words which a friend
of mine will voice all connected to an mp3 player. This will enable me, as Pippin,
to have a conversation with him, just a bit of fun. I’m also trying to decide whether
to have his head move side to side. Will see when the times comes.
This is a picture to the scene from the movie. (its not very clear but the best still I could do).
I am usually busying myself making one thing or another and thought I will spend a good amount of time creating this costume over the next 12 months.
The build will be done bit by bit, whenever I find the time to fit it into my other projects and when I source the materials.
Here is a couple of pictures of a Uruk-hai
