Skirt (Posted 16th February 2010)
Well I've done the skirt.Fabric paint is clearly the way to go.It looks good and took considerably shorter than cutting out and sewing on the black dolphins.I need some sort of stiffening fabric on the back of the feathers to keep them sticking out.Or maybe I will just let them flap about in the wind like real feathers would.I tried glueing them on to the orange skirt to avoid any sewing but the glue left a wet mark that soaked through onto the orange skirt and then the feathers came unstuck a couple of days later anyway,so I got orange thread and a needle and sewed them.Now just need to do the problematic shoulder growth thingy and he's done

Hmm,how to do this?What have I learned from my last version of Jecht?Well I guess I will be painting the dolphins on with fabric paint this time,as last time they took hours to sew on,plus they started peeling off at the Expo!Other than that I think I will have great fun making it look tatty,making some ripped shorts and ripping an orange piece of fabric for the skirt.The white feathery part of the skirt looks quite straightforward and fun.Not sure how to attach the thing growing out of my shoulder though.
