Oh wow!! That's awesome!!!! I have a quick question for you.  What was a tauntaun modeled after? Is it part horse part reptile of some sort? Han Shot First

Here's the whole Wookiepedia article about them! starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Taunta…

I personally think it's kindof like a bighorn sheep dinosaur.

Well done, Zhon.  As I look at tauntaun images, this costume struck me as proportionate enough while not becoming overly complicated.  Excellent!

my daughter would die of embarrassment if i picked her up at the airport wearing this. airport security might not like it so much tho.

That WOULD be quite the embarrasment for a young girl XD
But on the upside, all the StarWars nerd would be flocking your way! (when I wore this, I had no idea how much of a disturbance/uproar I would create)

are those real horns? ..they look real >_<
i guess i should be asking how heavy are they? lol im trying to make a head of my character, who happens to have huge rams horns lol... i want them too look very real XD and was wondering how heavy it would be if i just used real ones lol

Yeppers, the horns are real sheep horns!
The horns I had were off of a mouflon sheep I do believe... horns themselves only weighed maybe a pound together. It was the steel rods I put in them to bolt them to the helmet that made them sorta heavy.

Nice! I didn't make it to SF09 as I had hoped. Which really sucks, since I bet this is wicked in person. Nice work!
