Bad BigfootI thought I would take just a little time today and write a short post about some bad Bigfoot picture and costumes.
A bad Bigfoot image can from a wide range of sources. From the low budget costume makers to the cheesy low budget horror movie to the serial and/or casual hoaxer. Lets take a look at some of these bad Bigfoots!
Well, this Bigfoot looks happy! Maybe it's because it finally found a part of shoe that fit. No more sore feet. This is not from a hoax or anything but a print that you can purchase. I was going to link to the site but it appears to have a virus ....so can't do it.
This Bigfoot is not a terrible effort considering it is made out of wigs from Wal-mart, but I have seen much better from Mark Cline. For those who don't know Mark has been making stuff like this for years. Stuff like a giant 50 foot tall dinosaurs and Foamhenge. Foamhenge is a Stone henge replica made out of of ...you guessed it ...Foam.
Mark has a roadside attraction located in Natural Bridge, VA.
Check out his youtube video Hunt Bigfoot with a Redneck to see this Bigfoot in action.
I don't know much about this one. The body looks decent but the big mouth and fangs are pretty wild. Hey, maybe it is a Bigfoot Vampire? What I do know about it is that it is from the film Night Claws starring Frank Stallone. It was shot in Mobile, AL back in 2001. It was another "Killer Bigfoot" movie. Why is it most Bigfoot movies show Bigfoot as a crazed killer? ...Bigfoot needs a better agent.
This photo was presented by none other than Rick Dyer. I think it was taken while he was on an expedition in Florida. Best I can remember, Dyer claimed that someone hoaxed him by dressing up in a suit.
Again, don't know much about this Bigfoot but he has the David Letterman teeth and looks a bit "slow", if you know what I mean. Could this be from a movie ....if so I'm hoping it was a comedy.
Bad movie Bigfoot. I think this is from the movie Suburban Sasquatch. Its your typical "the beast is on a blood thirsty rampage" movie. Arms and legs getting ripped off ....but hey that might be your thing.
Maybe the worst looking Bigfoot in the movies. Curse of Bigfoot - this is a terrible attempt at creating a Bigfoot creature but hey it was made back in like the 70's and it was a mummified Bigfoot ...so maybe we can overlook it. If you are so inclined you can watch the film for Free by Clicking Here.
Now, don't tell me you have seen Bigfoot up close and have been interacting with them and then tell me this glass eyed monster from Todd Standing is real. This Bigfoot has that far way look in his eyes, that blank stare ....maybe it's over medicated? ..Staring contest ...GO!
So, there you have it. Some of my picks for the "Bad Bigfoot" club. Please don't take it too seriously this post is meant to be somewhat lighthearted. I'm sure if you look around you can find some better than these.
Bigfoot for entertainment is fine, just be upfront about it, but hoaxing, lying and being dishonest just to make money is not acceptable to most people.
Of course any serious researcher who takes the subject seriously, needs funding and support but never be dishonest or pull hoaxes just to get funding, it only hurts the rest of us and the field in general.
