Copper, my Raptor Puppet
Hello, my name is Havilah. This is my homemade Velociraptor puppet whom I've named Copper. I hope you like her!
She is made of:
* Polyester Foam
* Aluminum Wire
* Wooden Dowels
* Wooden Slabs
* Styrofoam Balls
* Hot Glue
* Rubber Sealant
* Liquid latex
* Acrylic paints
The tools I used to create her are:
* Soldering Iron
* Hot Glue Gun
* Metal pick
* Needle nose pliers
* My hands (don't know if that counts)
She is approximately 2 feet and 5 inches from the base of her neck to the tip of her nose, 1 foot from the bottom of her jaw to the top of her head. When her mouth is open to its extent, the tips of her lips measure to be about eleven inches from lip to lip.
She has a moveable neck which can swivel up, down, left, and right. Her jaw can open and close. Her tongue can move up and down with the push of a lever located inside of her head.
Her head and neck are made from wire, foam, fabric, and paint. Her teeth are made from homemade resin molds. Her eyes are styrofoam balls with felt, paint, and glaze.
The total time taken to create this puppet would be about a month and a half
