Figured once we got enough of this project done we would post it up. Several years back we purchased a Kota Dinosaur for our son Gavin. We picked it up on Craigslist relatively cheap. From the beginning I had always said "That would make an awesome baby terror dog". So the project was born.

We originally started this project early last year to have it done in time for last Halloween but we ran into some issues and ran out of time to work on it. This year, we aimed to have it done by a Pet Festival charity that we wanted to raise money for.

Our inspiration

First thing up was the eyes. We of course wanted them red....and to glow. We had to remove the existing eye paint in order keep the pupils and whatnot from shining through. So after we did that, we painted the lids with a hammered silver and the lenses with a red. Came out pretty good.

Lighting was achieved by wiring in 2 LEDs per eye. Very creepy at night.

Since the pet fest was coming up fast, we didn't have time to make a proper skin from the new fabric we picked up.

Image

Image



For the time being, we used fabric paint. After the season we will be having a new skin made. Garree is also working on his baby terror dog and we may end up getting him to make our skin as well.

Kota originally had a fan around her neck since she was a triceratops. We ended removing that section completely and building up the area around the neck.

I LOVED this idea so much that we scored a KOTA on craiglist a few weeks ago, and are following Nathan's conversion method. I'm taking wip pics as well, and I'll try to take some additional pics of problem areas not covered in Nathan's pics that hes given me a head's up on.

V2 will be a little better. Not only will she have better skin but also a little more muscle definition.

I'm thinking somewhat pointed claws would be nice as well. I still need to get that damned cowl off first though. Grrrr!
