The costume was made from a Plush Friends Elmo hand puppet, and some red fabric I got at an Arts & Craft store. I paid a local tailor to create the suit, which has velcro straps on it so it can easily be removed at any time. Since the Robosapien V2 and the Robosapien RS Media use the exact same body mold, the costume fits the Robosapien V2 as well. You can see the costume in detail by looking at the photos on this page. The costume does not harm the Robosapien RS Media in any way; except for his dignity!

How To Download And Install ElmoSapien On Your Robosapien RS Media
Note: You will need 10.5 MB of free space on your Robosapien RS Media’s internal memory or your SD card if you are using one. If you have trouble, visit the Robosapien RS Media forum for help.
Unzip the file making sure you have the “use directories” setting turned on, so that the stored directory tree is intact after extraction is complete.
With your Robosapien RS Media powered down, attach the USB cable. Then turn it on and put it in USB Mode (see manual). This will allow you to access your robot’s memory as an external drive in Windows Explorer.
Using Windows Explorer, find the Robosapien RS Media USB drive which should appear as a Removable Drive in the drive list.
Find the directory called /Personalities on the USB drive and open it (navigate into it).
Find the /Elmosapien directory from where you extracted it on your hard disk and copy it into the /Personalitiesfolder on the USB drive.
You should now be able to exit USB mode, go into Control Mode, and use the b button to cycle through the personalities until you reach the ElmoSapien personality. Make sure you test the robot interaction scripts, they’re funny and are a treat for anyone that owns more than one WowWee robot. Anytime you need a quick laugh, just touch ElmoSapien’s foot!
