Since I have experience fabricating human armatures, fabricating the coyote armatures was not too difficult. I just had to transfer my methods of combining wood and aluminum wire into the physiology and frame of a coyote. The experimental part was with the fur. At first he anded up looking more like a rat until I shaved the fur down with scissors. I used christmas tree LED lights for glowing eyes and rubber doll clippings for the ears. The overall look I wanted to be a bit raw where you could see the bits and peices making up the puppet sticking out here and there.
