Area 51's own 'Abominable Snowman' Area 51's own 'Abominable Snowman'

Area 51 generated a genial giant yeti to grace the Big Snow event held in the Pyrenées.

Initially developed and built as a special costumer for promotional activity designed to bolster ticket sales, the yeti proved such a success it was then taken to the show itself, held in the tiny country of Andorra and sandwiched between France and Spain.

The costume was designed and built to the client's specifications and features a lightweight alloy frame plus poly-sculpted components and a hard-wearing outer shell.

And the yeti was put to good use at the cool event which was successfully held in the village of Arinsal. Despite its size the costume is surprisingly versatile and has excellent freedom of movement due to the light-weight structure.
