Starting from the very beginning of the design process, I go over the plans and ideas for building out each piece of the costume. Also included is a quick look at the cardboard prototype of the neck!
As I convert the cardboard prototype into the final EVA and plastic pieces, I go over each piece in fair amount of detail, as well as a look into how the head movement works. Movement showcase video at the end!
A short-ish entry dedicated to going over some adjustments I’ve made to the head and neck in preparation for foaming, and adding some reinforcement in certain areas.
Full of many images covering my addition of foam to the neck and head skeleton, as well as installing the EL panel eyes and a magnetic tongue! At this point, his head is mostly done, it just needs teeth and fur.
I move onto the construction of the feet and hands, as well as add the buttons and wiring to the left arm. I also go over in detail how I made his EVA foam claws!
In this post, I share how I constructed the hollow vest, and include a video going over the details of the vest and electronics.
BONUS: Includes a movement test of the current suit progress with working SFX!
