On April 14, a performer from the “Walking with Dinosaurs” arena show came to the Stanley A. Milner branch of the Edmonton Public Library to promote the new tour, wearing the juvenile T-Rex suit.
These aren’t my pictures, but the ones posted to the EPL Facebook. He was only there for about five minutes, but made a good show of it, stomping around and tossing his head, sticking his nose out to be petted. Nobody seemed to mind the visible legs in the costume, and a lot of kids drew back, while a few of those cried.
Note the bristles on the suit, which weren’t there before: the presenter claimed that this version of the arena show would add feathers to the dinosaur costumes and animatronics for the sake of accuracy.
Which means I have an excuse to go again—awright!
The same group also put on a “How to Train Your Dragon” stage show, also.
