This Costume is for a character in pilot for a children’s TV show, “In the Rainbow Nest”, which is being filmed this Autumn. I made 4 costumes and 4 puppets for this show.
With this one, the biggest challenge was the structure of the head. Here is a photo of the inside of the head:
The head itself is made of foam, with supports made from swimming pool floats glued inside it. These are used to support the cradle of a hard hat. There is also an integral fan for ventilation. The actor can see through the mouth.
The claws are made of PVC and stuffed with filling.
