He’s furry, red, and robotic! Meet ElmoSapien, the fusion of Sesame Street’s legendary Elmo puppet character and WowWee’s fantastic Robosapien RS Media robot. Like VaderSapien, ElmoSapien is out to dominate the world, but in funny, silly, way! Watch the video to see ElmoSapien in action.

The costume was made from a Plush Friends Elmo hand puppet, and some red fabric I got at an Arts & Craft store. I paid a local tailor to create the suit, which has velcro straps on it so it can easily be removed at any time. Since the Robosapien V2 and the Robosapien RS Media use the exact same body mold, the costume fits the Robosapien V2 as well. You can see the costume in detail by looking at the photos on this page. The costume does not harm the Robosapien RS Media in any way; except for his dignity!
