Hello there everyone, I'm interested in possibly building a Slimer puppet that could be fully articulate like in the movie. What would it be made of in order to move fluently?
How would I go about making it?
Has anyone tried making one before?

Whoever might have some possible ideas or thoughts are deeply appreciated. smile

Thanks everyone.

wood, foam, latex, foam covered latex, though don't ask me how you'd make one, these just seem to be common materials for props like that.

I have made puppets out of foam before. It's a lot of work and very time consuming. angry
How would I go about making a cast?
(Thank you both for your suggestions)
