Hair

The character visual identity includes his hair style, choosing right material for making puppet was tricky. I didn’t want to go to higher extinct going for fur or natural hair. Most probably in industry commonly use of fiber ,wool, thread cotton etc some of my choice in mind was coconut husks fiber and arrack nut husks . After trying both I ended up  in choosing arrack nut husks fiber  it was perfect to wok with it giving a batch of thick fiber having a natural shine exactly like hair .it was much more easier to mold up into the characters shape than the other. A thin layer of adhesive was used to hold the husks shape as it was molded.

A temporary cloth layer was sticked to the skull to foam a skull cap in which the hair fiber was attached  and shaped up which was later removed to form a wig.
