Jurassic Park 1 Velociraptor Suit Spiral Neck Mechanism

Over the Past month I have been working like crazy on building a velociraptor suit and have recently been drawing inspiration from the bts of Jurassic Park. I had read that they used a spiral to create a hollow form for the neck but I'm running into some issues with the area that connects to the head. I haven't seen very many people talk about this but it seemed really innovative to me so I would be curious if anyone had insight on this topic.

    Hi Neev,

    If you want temporary connections (which are always best so you can easily replace or maintain things) you could glue fabric tabs along the rim of the neck and then use a temporary connection like velcro, snaps, etc. to attach the tabs to the skull.

  • Thanks for the tip! funny enough I made the decision last night to use velcro tabs and it's going well, I'll probably post my progress tonight.

  • Very cool indeed. I love the size and yet still getting good motion and balance.
