You Never Know Who You Might Meet

Photo taken by me – unexpected guest
Preston, England
March 19, 2016 11:22am CST
I was in the middle of a photoshoot with friends at a public open day concert and inland beach party in Castlefield, Manchester when unexpectedly this quite friendly chap wandered by so naturally I got a few photos of him too. It was a very warm day so I expect he was quite hot and uncomfortable in such a heavy duty costume. Arthur Chappell

I wore a gorlla costume for a play once - I must have shed pounds as I sweated so much over the space of a few hours

That creature would have gotten my attention too! Great costume! I bet the wearer was dripping with sweat in that thing.

Must love kids to be willing to be in that discomfort for the whole day.

@Inlemay I never found out who he was though he may be from a TV show or computer game of some kind

OMG! I have pity on whoever is wearing that costume. I couldn't imagine myself wearing that under a very hot place.

That's certainly some costume but it does look hot.

Sure...but why do they have such heavy costumes? Maybe something for @JolietJake to look into...his costumes seem fairly ballooned...
