So I'm building the Kaiju Skin Louse from Pacific Rim! This is my first ever creature effects project, so I'm pretty nervous and excited about it. It's also a huge learning experience because almost every aspect of this project is a new experience for me. My end goal is to have it semi-animatronic, "semi-" in that it won't be remote control, it'll just be running off a script stored in a servo controller. What's really neat about this project is that I contacted Spectral Motion, the company that produced the Skin Lice for the movie, and they actually answered some questions on it for me. What you see here is the finished underside of the body, sculpted in Super Sculpey over a rigid floral foam core.
I placed this into the Props category because, while it IS creature effects, functionally it is a movie prop replica.
