Baby Slitheen Creature Costume by CB-FX Baby Slitheen Creature Costume by CB-FX
I sculpted this little guy for the Doctor Who spin off show Sarah -Jane Adventures. It was sculpted in wet clay over a fibre glass life cast of Mr Jimmy Vee, a well known creature performer. The sculpture was a little over 4 ft tall. It was moulded as a 2 piece fibre glass mould then cast in foam latex and painted. I was responsible for the sculpture, moulding and some fabrication but did not have a hand in the final paint or animatronic on the head and cable control on both hands.

He was a randy little bugger as well, lol.
One of the beautiful things about animatronics is how you can flip his nature with a simple control. He did get allot of girls pining over him onset.

I seriously want to cuddle him, but he might eat me. XD

I get the feeling that would be a risk you would happily take! ;-)

He would probably eat me in the end, but as long as there was a photograph of me cuddling him beforehand, then that'd be okay. XD

Unfortunately I can not take the credit for the look of the Slitheen. It was very much a collaboration between Neill Gorton and Russell T Davis. The main brief when sculpting the baby Slitheen was to make sure he didn't look like ET, lol. It was harder to achieve than I thought.
Thanks for the comments.

Many thanks for the nice comments. See your both Doctor Who Fans.
I've worked for the very talented Neill Gorton at Millennium FX as a freelancer for the last 8 years so have worked on Doctor Who, Torchwood and Sarah Jane since 2005.
Been an amazing experience and an honour to be part of.
Thanks again.
