Head movement mechanism

Saw similar threads but they were a little older so allow me to raise the dead.

I'm building a big costume (Godzilla), and want to be able to move the head/mouth using my own head movement. However, the head will be about 30cm above my own (and slightly to the front, if that matters)

This awesome link was shared in a previous thread. (Still not 100% on the mechanism to nod) 

Also, another take for a Halloween costume.

I'm wondering if there are other good options being height is not as much of an issue.

I'm usually more into the design, shaping, fabric-work and painting so stepping out of my comfort zone here. Any advice or ideas much appreciated!


  • The linkages shown in the two videos provided are a good starting point.  For basic head movement, they get the job done.
