Costume Information

Description
I can't remember how much I spent on it (not much I imagine) and I fail at fabrics so I can't tell you what I used! I go by how it looks not what it is lol

I got the shape of Quina by using a sumo suit. I cut a hole for the fan to go through as i didn't want to choke it.

The mask is craft foam painted white, with white cotton. I painting on the eyes with acrylic - which you can't see here lol.

The spork is made out of craft foam, foam board and cardboard. Oh, and chopsticks! it was a bit top heavy... I then modrocked it all, and used acrylics! BTW, I don't recommend this method for long lasting props - it died on the way home
