i searched on the internet and found something called "walking with dinosaurs" and it was a show with huge dinosaur puppets that walk around, blink, roar, bite, move and every possible thing you could think of. but what really cathed my eyes was the velociraptor. it wasnt only a puppet, it was actually a costume with a person inside it.
as you can see the raptors have movable legs, which are strapped to the users legs. the user is wearing black pants too.
so, what i was thinking is to make a frame of chicken wire, legs of pvc,linked together with zip ties so they can move, and then cover it in paper mache, or plaster bandages or something like that.
now here comes the tricky part. i would like it so that you have a handle in front of you with which you can make its mouth open and close.
any suggestions or hints will be greatly appreciated! =D
