For the recent Wizard World Comic Con in Sacramento, Rob Cockerham made a working six-foot fidget spinner costume. It's quite a sight.
Downtown was crowded with people, and comic book nerds were packed everywhere, lining up to get into the Con.

"OH DAMN! MIKE! LOOK! FIDGET SPINNERRRRR!" x 1000.
I love being stopped for photos, and with the fidget spinner costume I had a special trick: Invariably the photographer would click through and snap a picture, thank me and then slowly realize the whole truth.
"Does it.... spin?"
I would slowly nod. "Yes. It does!" Then I'd back up and give it a big whirl and they would shriek or just shake their heads in amazement. It was incredible!
