I think tauntauns are SUPPOSED to eat lichens that grow in the ice caves of Hoth or something like that. However, since we rarely have snow here, we find that SHE likes hay, grass, grain, and candy, of all things, as a treat! We also give her Corellian ale, occasionally, (in small amounts of course)....

I can't wait to see it finished either! Right now, I'm putting on the "hide" of fur and installing the lower jaw so that it opens and closes, and putting in the "bit" (part of the bridle that goes in the mouth) It's a long tedious process.....the fur has to be sewn just right and my sewing skills are terrible...kind of like synthetic taxidermy!

Thanks for the compliments!

That is awesome progress!! I really hope you can get it done in time to "wear"/ride her at CV! If you do, be sure to find me (I'll probably be at the R2-D2 Builders' Club room most of the time) so I can get my pic taken with you (and your tauntaun!)

Here's some more recent pictures of my tauntaun progress:



The head, although I'm altering the horns, due to them still being too heavy.


The tail, with the fake fur applied, before painting.


Painting the fake fur.


The upper body, with fake fur applied, before painting. The front paws are made from old Halloween "monster hands".


The body being painted.


One of the front paws, before painting.


Upper body with saddle applied.


Fake legs, made of a pair of the pants with crotch cut out and fitted down into the boots with gaiters.


Here it is as it stands right now. It hangs horizontal, because it is slightly front-heavy. When I'm standing on the stilts and down in the thing, it will look more vertical.

I'm slowly getting it done....please bear with me!
