Mentos Kiss Dog

Asylum Supervisor

Kate McConnell

The head was modelled after the real dog, providing a seamless transition between it and the kissing moments.

It was built as a hand puppet, using a fibreglass core to mount the animatronic eyes and facial muscles. The skin was cast in foam latex and fake fur fabric was pattern cut to fit over the top. A mixture of flocking and hair punching was used to blend the edges.
