    Wow, it's really coming along!  Thanks for sharing the updates.

    If you want the tail to slide over the floor you could put a low friction plastic (like delrin) underneath.  I've also seen some folks use caster wheels, or ball casters.

    Another option is to use a thin monofilament line from the end of the tail to the back of the character to suspend the tail.  It will be somewhat visible, but not from a distance and is easily removed in photographs.

    And after several more months of quiet, another major update...with video:
    17kg (37lb) of fleece, vinyl, open-cell urethane foam, closed-cell polyethylene foam, lycra, hard rubber nonskid tiles, expanded polystyrene beads, and fake fur.

    Video:


    The teeth and tongue need to be installed, the neck needs adjustment, and the end of the tail spikes/ventral plating need polyethylene glide tape (I found some!), but it's basically a week from completion.

  • And that's a wrap.  I'll have some pictures of him in action next week, and we'll probably see more tweaks over the next few months, but I'm done here.
