This Monday a bunch of us got together and started to design Leonard's head. We will be making the head out of dense foam, but we started with a cardboard model connected with duct tape. (cheap and easy) Here are some pictures from our workshop meeting...




Our plan is to make a giant dome for the top of the head and a separate jaw that will hang from the shoulders and rest on the front of the torso. In other words, when worn, it will NOT look like this...


It will look more like this..


(The guy in the cardboard is Shawn - he will be wearing the costume.)

We bought football shoulder pads for the harness because of their snug fit to the body and wide surface area for connecting the costume pieces. We will modify the pads and attach the different pieces to them...How you ask? We don't know yet. This upcoming Monday we are gathering for Leonard workshop #2. We will be 1. constructing the actual head and jaw with foam and 2. deciding how to attach everything together. More pictures and updates to come next week!
