I think hes in a sitting position (like when you sit on a chair, but without the chair) in this costume.
I'm only guessing, but I noticed he walked a bit funny too. If you pause and look carefully, it looks like he is just sitting on an invisible chair (if you ignore the crouch part on his lap)

Genius, I'd love to see how he goes from normal to cut in half, he did once in the video but there was a dude in front of the camera

I feel like maybe they did it with his torso leaning diagonally? And maybe the bottom part of his top half is plastic or maybe has stuffing in it and he's walking at an angle. I don't know but that's my guess.

Copperfield did this years ago.

Yeah, I think the thigh part of his body is plastic, and he's mostly just squatting on his thighs. You can tell from how forward his "legs" are compared to the rest of his body.

His right leg is folded under him on a platform that the shirt wraps underneath. His left leg fills the right leg section of the costume. The left hand that wraps around the waist is fake. His real left hand is controlling a counter balanced prosthetic that is heavy enough to support his offset weight. This is why he can only really bounce and not walk normally.

I'm baffled cause he's moving both his hands, but does appear to be dragging the left foot....if anyone has any idea of how this is done please comment, I would love to know before i start cutting up my clothes...thanx ya all... u can inbox me at tonyduttz6126@gmail.com

Both of the hands shown are real cause there is a clip where he is shaking someones hand with his right hand and then at 0:44 he moves his left hand
