One of the first challenges I faced in Episode 6 was making an animatable Fourth Doctor scarf in miniature.

I found a series 17 scarf pattern online and printed it out to scale. Even in miniature, it is 23 inches long.

The scarf has an armature made of aluminum wire wrapped in heavy aluminum foil. This allows it to be posed in gravity defying ways.

The armature is covered with knit fabric salvaged from an old shirt

I painted the scarf pattern on, using masking tape to keep it neat.

The finished scarf is actually long enough to wrap around my neck. 

Can we just admire this picture, and how they are all looking so proud of their career and the wonderful adventure they just helped create. Except for Paul. Paul literally looks like he crawled out of a trench from the first world war.
