Probably the suit I'm most known for creating, this is Fred the Groudon made for my friend ScratchingSouls to wear. He took me over 2 years and 300 hours to put together and I tried a whole bunch of new techniques to bring him to life. Lots and lots of foam. on this one, he's literally a walking couch! Features glowing follow-me eyes, extreme body padding, and a velour knit fabric for extra hugability. Fred won 2nd place best in show at A-kon 2012, and the Video Game award, Audience Favorite, and 1st Place Master's Level award at Nan Desu Kan 2012.
