To sculpt the costume of Kanoot, actor Ralph Garman was scanned digitally.
The costume is mostly animatronic, including the eyes and moving tendrils. To fashion the costume on Garman, the chin prosthetic is applied first and then the large headpiece. Two men are needed to operate the costume's robotic pieces by radio: one to control the tendrils and the other to control the eyes. The costume was constructed over a span of two weeks.
