We describe technology as augmenting human capabilities. But other creatures have been way ahead of us for millions of years: sharper hearing, a better sense of smell, protective shells and exoskeletons, weapons (claws, horns, talons), and wings. This costume expresses animal superpowers as we might design them for ourselves. Special thanks to brilliant photographer Willie Davis and multitalented stylist Alina Rancier.
