the idea bag is full (Posted 18th April 2013)
Basically re sewed the left arm, stuffed a bit of it, stuffed the left glove and have sewen a hole in the under arm seam so my arm can come out and into the puppet. I just need to work out exactly where I need my arm, incase I need to sew up the hole a bit more. Will do this when I have the proper belly made, not just stuffing a cushion up my jumper.
Notes; WAISTCOAT, shoe covers (they have a name but i'm too tired to think) and NEXT LAYER OF COLOUR ON HAIRS.
I want to make a proper latex puppet as the Cast members used. I have the stuff but I'm working on litter proects with the stuff first to get a bit better. For expo I'm using my 90's plushie puppet I bought at a previous expo.
wig and arm holes (Posted 13th April 2013)
After much much much more research, I actually found a photo of the cast member where you could deffinatly see how they made it so they could have their arm through. It's actually more simple than I was going to do. Though my way I believe would be tidier, I think their idea is a LOT more practical and much easier to do, AND I get to redo the left arm was I messed up the sewing on - Win win win! hehe. Will do it tomorrow now I know what I want to do.
yesterdAY (Posted 11th April 2013)
I quite happily spent yesterday feeling ill and spent the day on and off sewing the jacket. yay.
then today the wigbeard arrived :O already. It needs lightening (ye the impossible) and styleing a LOT.
just tried it all on mega quick and rough and remembered the fact I need my arm out of the sleeve for the puppet....... I can either just use my plushie or eit the jacket and use my large puppet... chooses* Do I really want to wreck the jacket? not really. Do I really want to use to the puppet - yes. hehe
70 year old pin cushion.. (Posted 9th April 2013)
haha, yup - because I couldn't put on the belly and pin the jacket at the same time I used the next best thing, something that was just the right shape... my dad hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahaa. He was a sport and let me, was actually a great help. Anyway.. The 11 pieces for the jacket are cut out. The blue, the black lining and the re lining - I will change the red to a better colour I think. Going to wait and see what's it's like when it's sewn together.
That was a lot of effort for me.. now I nee my bed again.
EXPO? (Posted 9th April 2013)
Ok, some family are away in WDW and keep sending me emails from Imagination Station. Soooo yes, I've been on a bit of a Figment/DF mood. Anyway, maybe I will bring him to Expo. Though the wig is still the main thing. I have no idea what to do. I can either dye beard and wig, but i don't know.. I can't decide. Someone HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP hehehehe
Trousers.. (Posted 11th January 2011)
I sewed the trousers yesterday and today stithed the button. I think I did the turn ups to high, but that's easy to fix once I can try them on with belly.
Starting... (Posted 7th January 2011)
I had a bit of energy so I cut out the fabric for the trousers and templates for jacket. I then realised I don't actually have all the fabrics I need.
Ohhhhhhhh and last night me and puppet Figment, sang and acted to the ride theme. hehe.. on webcam to a certain person. :D It was fun fun funnnnnnnnnn! CANT WAIT to get this finished!!!!
Oops.... (Posted 6th January 2011)
I actually haven't neglected DreamFinder totally......
Well, I have shoes.
I will MAKE myself do the Jacket and Trousers next week.Now i have written it I can't go back on it ;)

My local fabric shop, have begun to get more costume/dress fabrics in. SO, with everything how it is, I rushed this morning and got a lift with ym sister.
Apparently they have run out of a lot of basic fabrics over Halloween. The usual guy helped me a lot and we had our usual F1 chat. They are waiting for their delivery, which the owner was chasing it up while we were there. I think by the time they get it I will have been to Southampton's large store.
No Black Satan OR Black Silk - so i couldn't even impervise.
I did manage to spend £4.99p/m on 5m of Blue ?????
Oh and I got Blue ribbon for the hat. I have changed over the black ribbon to the blue.

While at the MCM Expo on 24th October, I spotted a 'royal purple pigment'ed being.. I shouted some weird excited noice, something like "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEE" and ran over through a large crowd to the stall. IT.WAS.FIGMENT!!!! ANDDD what's more, he was a puppet - PERFECT, now I don't have to make one.
He is twice the size that I would have wanted, but I love him and will be using him. *Disney grins*
< Photo was taken that night in the hotel..
