DIY Chris Pratt Pratting Costume


There were LOTS of memorable moments in Jurassic World. There was a lady that got eaten by a dinosaur that got eaten by a dinosaur (kind of like a human tur-duck-en), there was the guy who made sure to grab both of his margaritas in the midst of a Pteranodon attack, there was that strange cameo by Jimmy Fallon, and, of course, the scene that stole the show: raptor training with Owen...
