He was fitted with heavy and excellent prosthetics designed and created by the Academy Award-winning Spanish FX shop DDT Efectos Especiales, with whom he had previously collaborated on Pan’s Labyrinth; the FX technicians specifically requested that Jones be cast as the Mug creature due to his ability to perform with heavy prosthetics and elaborate special effects.
