Introduction: My Radiohead Bearsuit

Thought it would be a great idea in 2003 to dress up as the Radiohead Bear for Halloween.
It also served a purpose to distract me from some really bad and sad times.
Alas, it took another 5 years to create the complete suit.
Due to school, work, and life, I worked on it piece by piece every odd year:2003,2005,2007.
The idea is to be as 2 dimentional as possible, hence the flatness of the head, just like the logo.

Now it's an outfit I wear on Radiohead shows and I still have plans for it.
Recreated the body in 2008 so I can wear it in warm and hot times.
It's always a work in progress with constant maintenance.

Chronology:
2003 - Preproduction, started construction
2005 - Headpiece completed
2007 - Body completed - prototype, Halloween release
2008 - ??? More concerts and Halloweens to come with additional styles and revisions.

My major thanks to Miss Monster for the Plasti-Dip footwear idea
and Nicodemus' Fursuit Pages for the plastic canvas framework idea.
