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


painting the head :)

13th October 2011


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


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


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


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
