This Dinosaur foam head provides a base to make your very own adorable dinosaur, Angel dragon, round nose dragon, raptor, lizard or monster costume head. Can also be modified to be used as a deer, moose, horse, donkey and many more different animals, due to the soft and flexible nature of the foam, it is very easy to cut and modify to suit your needs.
This head comes pre-carved ready to attach to a balaclava and begin work on. To cut and hollow out the base, I fully remove the bottom jaw, so the item will come in two pieces but this is ideal if you want to create a moving jaw.

All of my bases are made from soft, light weight foam. They are durable for all suiting activities, Ideal for all kinds of costuming projects like fursuits, mascots, theatrical costumes, Halloween, cosplay or LARPing.
The bases have an open back to allow your build work for all shapes and sizes. For reference, the opening at the back of the base measures at: 9.5 inches wide and 9.5 inches high. But, Once cut, the head will be flexible enough to open out for larger sizes. (For instructions on how to build a base, please see further down the description)
With the cut and carved option, I cut and hollow the base out with a one size fits all model. But if you find it hasn’t been hollowed out enough for your project, the soft nature of the foam makes it very easy to cut to your liking with a pair of scissors. It can even be cut enough to accommodate glasses.
I also sell eyes to fit my bases in many different variations to choose and customise from, check them out here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/RunawayWorkshop?ref=hdr_shop_menu§ion_id=18577281
*** How to build ***
My youtube channel has a few demonstrations on how to get started on your project using my parts: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9oI5qJ4aRmWN5sfvaQ_nsQ?view_as=subscriber
Including information on how to build a moving jaw.
But if you need any more information, please get in touch. I’m happy to help you through every step of your costuming project.
*** Notes on finish***
- Over time, the outer skin will yellow slightly, but this will not affect the quality of the base. Especially once it has been covered.
- Some air bubbles will occur in the casting process, but again, once the base is covered these won’t be noticeable.
- Uncut bases can sometimes have air bubbles inside that are not detectable at the surface level (Especially during cold weather periods) these are easy to fill in with the foam hollowed from the head.
