Weta Legs Let You Act Out Your Creature Fantasies

Created by Weta Workshop, the guys responsible for the props and production design of  Lord of the Rings, Avatar, and District 9, these incredible appendages let you strut around looking like an animal or giant insect.


Weta Legs let stunt people and performers walk, run or jump while maintaining their balance in a creature-like gait. The legs can even be placed inside of costumes, and can be used to climb stairs. Check out the video below to see the Weta Legs in action:


While they’re designed for use in movies, television and other professional performances, I can only imagine what fun adventurous cosplayers would have with a pair of these.

Weta Legs sell for $945 (USD) and can be ordered directly from the Weta Workshop.
