    Hi Ted, what are the possible alternatives to using foam latex to skin Anubis? Latex is a trigger of anaphylaxis at my school so I can't use it and I would really like my students to try moving my Anubis when he is finished. Any suggestions are gratefully recieved! Thanks Ted

    This is something that we will be covering on day three. But I'll make sure to address it this coming saturday. If latex is not an option, I would consider skinning the project with only spandex. It will move easier and will cut out the latex situation I'll go in to more depth about it in few days.

    Hi Ted- 2 questions.
    1. Is the rib cage piece usually fixed or floating on the body form?
    2. The pieces that are sewn all the way around- are they covered on the back with spandex or do you just make a top surface cover that is stitched directly to the unitard?

    Hi Ted- a 3rd question- could you please bring pictures of the puppet sized muscle suits you have built this Saturday? I am curious as to how you scaled things down as I am having trouble working out which muscles to leave out and which to include on my Anubis figure.

    1: Looking back at most all of the ribs I've done, they seem to be floating. It's not always the case. It's a project to project decision as to what works best.
    2: If you're sewing all the way around, there is no need to cover the back side. It's just extra work and materials. Sew these pieces directly to the unitard.
    3: I'll try and get some pics of the animatronic muscle forms together for this coming Saturday.
