AMSTERDAM – What started as a class assignment resulted in a viral video. A student make-up artist created this Uruk-hai costume for her graduation project. Uruk-hai is a character from J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional Middle-earth universe, first introduced in the Lord of the Rings stories.
The costume made its way to 7’2″ Dutch bodybuilder Olivier Richters. Richters wore the outfit to the mall, much to the surprise (and fright) of unsuspecting shoppers.
