How can i make a white hawkstrider, a white giant bird, that is a robot and can carry my weight?

a white hawkstrider is a mount in World of Warcraft.  you can google an image of what a white hawkstrider does look like. I was wondering if it was possible to make a robot that can look like that. And if it can carry my body weight and i can mount it around or just walk beside it.  i hope i can.

By modifying this project.
That's roughly what I was thinking.

Usual approach to that soft of thing is costuming -- a bird body and legs that fit over your own legs and hips, with false legs attached to each side of your trunk and hanging down the sides of the bird. When done right -- and when acted well -- it can be quite a convincing illusion.

As they said, it would take some work and money to do that, and probably a lot of engineering and electronics (?) knowledge.

Not to mention that it would be pretty hard to make it look as good as the game one, mechanostriders would be easier (not to mention they're awesome, gnomes FTW) but still, a lot of work to do, a lot of troubles to deal with.

I recommend forgetting about it and making a hawkstrider costume for a strong guy that can carry you on his back :P

As a note: hawkstriders don't fly, at least they don't in the game, and I don't think he wants to make a flying one

P.S: haven't played WoW in about a year, I still love it... just saying

How much money do you have?
You can do want you like with computer-games, but reality is still something else.

umm to make an actual one you would need a big budget and some sort of flight class but to make a small replica that can fly you really just need an old RC plane
