Costume maker Philip Morris came forward claiming he designed and sold the Bigfoot costume to Roger Patterson for the 1967 famous Bigfoot hoax film. Now, Leroy Blevins works to reconstruct the Patterson Bigfoot suit in order to prove it can be done!
In November 2008, Philip Morris' story of how he created a Bigfoot suit and sold it to Roger Patterson for the infamous Patterson Bigfoot film hit the media. This was a tremendous blow to the Bigfoot searchers out there who have hailed this film by Patterson as being the Holy Grail of Bigfoot evidence.

A few months back, we brought you the story of Mr. Leroy Blevins and his work to uncover the truth behind the Patterson Bigfoot film. He was able to produce quite a bit of evidence that showed more men were at work to help create the Bigfoot evidence than what Mr. Patterson's account had led us to believe. You can read our story about Mr. Blevin's work here: Patterson Bigfoot.
It's been said by some that the gait of the Bigfoot in Patterson's film could not be duplicated by a human. Loving a challenge, Mr. Blevins decided to create a video and post it on YouTube of his initial attempt at creating the Bigfoot walk and turn move:

Still, Bigfoot enthusiasts and researchers have claimed that it would be impossible to create a Bigfoot costume showing the muscles and shape that is found in the Patterson clip. Leroy loves a challenge, as we mentioned.
Below are some comparison photos of Mr. Blevin's Bigfoot costume compared side-to-side with the suit made by Philip Morris.
"Here is a photo taken today of the copy of the Patterson Bigfoot costume.
I have to change some things to the suit, however, it matches the suit that Patterson used in his film.
Suit made by Leroy Blevins Sr."
We have to agree the suit is looking very close to the one in the Patterson film.
