Inflation First Tests

The head is not quite finished. We still have to put the bottom of the neck on. But that's it, so we decided for fun to try and inflate it. We have been working on it so long without any conception of what it would really look like blown up that we just couldn't wait anymore. Here the first images of it being blown up. (video in the next post... tune in later today)

These shots are from late in the afternoon yesterday, so the light was quite nice. We didn't fill it up completely with air because I was in the back holding down the remaining open area, but this gives you an idea of what it will look like eventually. The only tweaking I think we will need to do is in the face to get the nose and lips to be slightly more pronounced (look at picture no.2 - the nose is a bit too flat for example.) This will require some small internal cords.



The deflation starts


  1. That's so cool! Can't wait to see the finished product.

  2. Thanks! We're working hard on it. I'll post some image from the inside too, it's a different little world in there.
