Inspired by the goblin riders of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, and taking Oscar Garza 5 months to produce. The Super Mario Riding Yoshi Puppet was a hit at the Austin’s Comic Con!
This was a homemade creation. With fake Mario legs on the puppet, and the rider (Oscar Garza’s) own legs inside the Yoshi legs, giving the illusion that he is riding a real life Cartoon Dinosaur! To add to the realism, Yoshi has a full opening & closing mouth and extending tongue.
Oscar was also the maker of the homemade Skeksis costume that I covered in a previous post.
