Who makes the best gorilla costume? Looking for something between the cheap guy in a fur suit and movie quality, any suggestions?

Facemakers from Savanna, Illinois made Goldy Hawn's gorilla suit, then had to re-make it so it wouldn't mess up her hair do as she wore the headpiece.
They do incredible work.
Might be sort of pricey?

Distortions has a very realistic one but $$$!

I buy the $99 costume from Oriental Trading and use a better mask for the head. For the money you can't go wrong! You may have to do a little sewing to improve the quality but it has a cool latex belly, hands and feet.

Thanks for the responses. Thanks John for the recommendation, what are the best masks you've found?

I just ordered one from Zampora (?) Someone correct my spelling, they were at TW. They had some nice looking gorrilla and chimp costumes & masks. The one I ordered had "roar" in the title. I liked it because it look convincing AND it had a working jaw so actors can speak, eat & breathe easily.
