Years ago, a former coworker, who was a Cal ME grad and genius programmer, made a powerloader costume that blows this one out of the water. He had the strap-in foot holds for walking it around, rotating beacon light on top and actual sound effects from the movie played through an internal sound system when he walked. It was sick.

The outfit I wish I had pics of was a Toy Story "costume" from an ILM party that was more of a vehicle. It was the rocket shaped grabber-claw thingy from the movie - the one full of the 3-eyed aliens. The rocket part was about 10 feet high (!) and made of sturdy metal rails. A person dressed as the 3-eyed alien climbed up a ladder and hooked into harness that looked like a big claw just below the nose-cone. The bottom portion was filled with stuffed alien toys. The whole rig was on super heavy duty casters and friends pushed it around, or at least into and out of the warehouse where the party was. Probably the least practical costume ever, but mind-blowing.
