27th October 2011: complete finished!

24th October 2011: its all coming together!! this is just a quick test with the body to see where i need to take it in or adjust it.

24th October 2011: donkey head finished!! helmet fully ajusted, ive also added the ears, mohawk and his eyelashes!

13th October 2011: head painting the head :)

13th October 2011: ears painted the ears i just need to hard sew it

8th October 2011: major alterations!! eeek! ive had to completly ajust the padding and the inner head today as i found that when wearing the head the weight of donkey's nose pulls the head down wrong and it feels like its gonna fall off! so been adding a whole new helmet inside to change the structure. also had to ajust the padding so that the waistcoat is a bit bigger around the arms.

1st October 2011: foam body ive decided to make a foam suit so that i can get the right body shape for donkey

1st October 2011: head progress 8 the fur is all sewn on now and nice and neat. next i need to add the details and trim some of the fur

1st October 2011: head progress 7 all the fur is glued on now, next step is to hand sew the edges and tidy it up

1st October 2011: head progress 6 ive added the latex lips to the head and started to add some fur, it took a while to get it shaped right around the eyes.

1st October 2011: latex the original tongue i made was much too heavy and weighed the bottom jaw down too much. so i decided to try i new technique, i was unsure if this would work but luckily it did! i brushed liquid latex over some felt to make a tongue and lips.

1st October 2011: stilts progress added the hooves just need fur now, i also added coconut shells so that he will trot, trot, trot in the place yeah!

1st October 2011: complete back hoofs i added more foam and fur so that the feet will right when they are on.

26th September 2011: front legs, stilts these are the base for the stilts, i used some pvc pipe and some metal handles srewed on, then covered in foam for comfort. i still need to add hooves

26th September 2011: hooves hoof progress, this is the back hooves. i used an old pair of trainers and foam. then covered with black leather. they will look better when i finish them

26th September 2011: head progress 5 i have installed the eyes and teeth! he's starting to look more like donkey now. next step is to fur the head

26th September 2011: eyes the eyes are finally dry! i have painted the backs of them, and im very pleased with the result

26th September 2011: casting eyes i decided to cast the eyes using clear casting resin and a mould. they will take up to 2 weeks to fully cure

26th September 2011: teeth and tounge i made the toungue and teeth from fimo, but unfortunatly the tounge was too heavy to use! I will have to find something else

26th September 2011: head progress 4 i have now made donkey's ears and added invisible wire to the bottom jaw so that i can open and shut the jaw by pulling on it with my own jaw

26th September 2011: head progress 3 i added more foam for the cheeks and then carved the foam into the shape i wanted. next i made donkey's lower jaw and added elastic to help the jaw shut tight.

26th September 2011: head progress 2 next step was to add the foam, once it is dry it will be ready to carve

26th September 2011: head progress 1 after about 6 weeks of planning and material gathering i am ready to start making donkey, this is the base for the head. i used a cycle helmet and a piece of very dense foam for the top jaw/nose
