JC: Still seeking more clarity on the purported taxidermied bigfoot, I turn to effects artist Paul While for some answers.
JC: Paul, I have sent you pictures of what is said to be a dead bigfoot. Could you give us your opinion of the photos.
PW: Hello Jennifer, thank you for messaging me. Short answer - yes it's clearly a fake.
JC: Can you explain in more detail?
PW: The pictures are not the best of quality but the sculpture of the face gives it away. The paint job isn't very good and the lips should not be the same colour as the face. Also the eyelids don't look real. I understand Bigfoot is mythical creature and has never been seen to what it truly looks like but the facial proportions don't look right. The hair around the face doesn't look genuine either. I'd like to have seen the hands and feet because I will be able to tell if there any seam lines from where it was made from the potential molds.
JC: Have you heard much about this claim?
PW: I've just searched for it and seen a news article on this bigfoot. The guy is clearly seeking media attention. Watch the video, you can see the lies in his body language. Also watch the clip of the kid who views the body, another staged reaction.
I'm in no way a taxidermist so I can't comment on that part, but I'm very sure this is a hoax.
JC: Here's the feet (Shows Paul the feet photo)
PW: Yeah that picture isn't very clear so I can't really see proof. What I have noticed is the colours are very vivid and over saturated - a clear indication of paint applied to something like a latex material. Also going back to the face, both eye sockets are different sizes. Good effort but poorly executed.
JC: Thanks Paul for providing your professional insight to this ongoing story
PW: No problem at all.
It seems some have not seen the feet of the dead bigfoot so here it is with a new reply from Paul While.
