Costume Information

General
Cost : £60-ish
Awards : 3rd place Best Costume at Midlands Expo
Time Taken : I forget....6 weeks?

Description
I'd planned to make a full Sudowoodo costume after speaking with member wilterdrose, and now I've done it!

I started it way before Christmas and was initially planned for London Expo in May, but I rushed to get it finished as he's actually making his debut at Midlands Expo instead now!

If you see me, you can have a "TREE HUG!"
It's constructed mainly from kiddies craft foam (funky foam), lots of hot glue and some weird brown fabric which I have no clue as to what type it is, only that it seems waterproof on one side.
The "hands" are also made from foam and 6 polystyrene balls. The rest are simply a quick set of clothes I made for underneath the costume when I want to take a break, the spats were quick to make too, and are elasticated like the trousers.

@SephNoir Thank you so much! And thank you for acknowledging my work with a prize! He's got a bit battered and needs a few repairs, but overall I think he survived the swarm of tree huggers! Roll on May! XD

Thank you to everyone who met me, took photos and commented here on my costume, I really appreciate all the positive comments! Makes me more enthused and determined to make more complex costumes and really push myself to the limits!

@Sephirayne thank you so much!
I was really surprised as there were lots of amazing costumes backstage at the masquerade that were much better than mine. I hope to learn from the things I've seen and to up the stakes next expo!

i really hope the repairs go well. *sigh*
it's the ones that hug/crush/glomp you without even considering the costume. i know people get excited and you had tree hug sign, but come on, at least get the sudowoodo's attention before hugging.

Sudowoodo now in need of repairs :( (Posted 24th February 2010)

Well goddammit.
Sudowoodo is now in need of some repairs. Not major, mind, but I would have had a thing or two to say to a few people of they'd have broken my £450 designer glasses I was wearing at the time because they glomped me, and without permission...
I'm seriously thinking of leaving the Tree Hugs sign at home now and not bringing it to May Expo at all, because unfortunately, you always get the idiots. And because of this, my costume got completely crushed...
Work involved is mainly strengthening the main piece I wear, ball re paint and fixing a hole on my shoe spat.
Other than that, I will add some pockets to my trousers to make it easier for me to carry my belongings around.
