    Default real life dracolich puppet

    been playing game since start, get tired of all doom and gloom threads, so thought would share this.
    it is a puppet i made about 8 years ago. it weighs about 50lbs, dynamic puppet, meaning you need to keep moving, if ya stop and still the balance can get pretty crazy. I wear it on back pack armature ( which can be seen leaning against wall in left corner) , neck, head and arms all move. wingspan of arms extended 24 ft. to give ya sense a scale. my intention is to make it breathe fire, as a person who goes to burningman festival for 17 years. just have not got around to it yet, lol. anyway enjoy

    Awesome!!!

    Heh.. Take that into a hunters lodge.

    That's something I'd hang on the wall. A dead deer head.. Not so much.

    it took me a little over 2 months to make, a lot of paper mache work, and then some fiberglass resin coatings.

    Only four cervical vertebrae? And no scapulae? The vertebrate paleontologist in me would like to give you some notes

    Very nice! Can't wait to see it out on the playa even though I am probably skipping this year to focus on our installation for next year.

    Should be a good year for large puppets this year though

    Shouldn't be hard to wire up a mini or homemade CO2 cannon and make it breath smoke at least.

    I call this one, thread of the week. (for what it is worth)

    Very nice. Any chance of being able to stick up a video of it in action? (then again, knowing my luck, as I'm at work, such links won't show up due to being blocked like picture sites.)
