Cow puppet build update

So we're so close to finishing her. The neck mechanism and revolving hips are working a treat. Hope to tie all the loose ends in the coming week.

More from our Cow puppet build

Cow puppet construction

Here she is, well it's a great start anyways. So far we've put together the basic frame of our cow puppet. You should be able to notice the revolving waist mech, this will have bungy spanning the two halves to help spring the bum end of the cow back to the central position. The positioning of the udders means they sway when the rear it moved, adding to the illusion of the cow walking. This puppet will be puppeteerd by two people so it won't be having legs as such. More to follow

Cow puppet build

So we've got a few weeks gap before our next project kicks off at the National, 'Elephantom'. To fill it we'll be making a cow puppet and a extra large giant head/face puppet. Lots to do in a short amount of time, same old story! Here's some pics so far
