Ultra-Cheap Animatronics

Allen Hopps brings us a tutorial on creating cheap miniature animatronic figures using salvaged armatures.

As with all of his projects there are a multitude of potential applications. The video mentions laboratory specimens specifically, but I was more intrigued by their potential use as costume elements. The perennial problem with live action Mythos games is how difficult it is to reproduce the look of a Lovecraftian beastie. Having multiple moving elements in the costume would go a long way toward breaking the "man in a suit" effect.

Like this blog, Allen's videos have become an addiction.
