Lots of cutting and glueing going on at night.

Halloween is coming and way to quickly. I’m trying to get this giant cardboard monster built and I’m going to be cutting it really close. Cardboard scales instead of fur for this Kukeri inspired monster.

After the drawing and thinking and drawing. I started out with a pool noodle spine and some graduated cardboard disks. Four strings run down each side and through the disks, now I can pull on a string and the head will tilt down in that direction. Now to cut lots of scales and bits to be the covering, kinda like fur. After that, the whole thing goes on my head and it’s time to work out the vest and shoulder support.

Work in progress, head on shoulder supports.
