My husband and I are HUGE scifi nerds. One day I was sitting around bored out of my mind with no projects to make. He challenged me to make a stuffed Shai Hulud. This is the giant sand worm from the epic book series DUNE by Frank Herbert. His mouth is the triple open jaw (book canon, not movie). His mouth actually goes down about 12 inches with three rows of teeth. I originally had a sachet of cinnamon inside so he would even smell like Spice. That idea was short lived. The ground cinnamon started to leak through the fabric and leave marks. The Old Man Of The Desert now resides on my side chair ready to swallow any Harkonen who sit there.

This is just ridiculously awesome, haha!  I had to show my boyfriend.

And, I have an idea for your cinnamon sachet problem- what if you used cinnamon sticks or chips instead?

I don't know much about DUNE, but I thought it was funny that I saw your post right before I watched the show, "Chuck", tonight.  In the episode, Chuck and his friend dress up like Shai Hulud!  Now that I know what it looks like, I can say you did a great job re-creating it!   Grin

Thanks everybody! I'm glad you all enjoyed.

I hadn't thought about the Sarlaac. It makes me want to find a Boba Fett to shove down its throat. Oh, but then Boba would blow him up from the inside and get guts all over my living room.... Maybe not such a good idea.
