|Already had leftover fleece soooo decided to put it to good use! What better than cosplaying from one of my most favourite kids books EVER!|
The Crown! (Posted 19th February 2011)
This is nearly done now. Painted, Varnished, just needs the trim added :3
Because the whole suit is white fleece, I've opted for a fantastic fur fabric that has purple bits in it. Thought it gave it more of a royal feel to it as well as a slightly 'Wild' feel to it. =^___^=
Crown! (Posted 24th January 2011)
The suit is all done (aside from attaching the tail.) so its time to focus on the props for now. Made a start on the Crown for Max. ATM the base is made out of paper cardboard, newspaper and masking tape. This is just for the base.
Apologies for rubbish picture.
Tail :3 (Posted 22nd January 2011)
All stuffed and ready to go. Just need to work out attachment methods and make sure the stuffing is ok.
THE WILD RUMPUS STARTS. (Posted 21st January 2011)
Right. So it begins.
Found a fantastic material for Max's tail today so managed to go ahead with that. Just needs stuffing then can attach it to the near completed suit. I was surprised on how easy this cosplay has been to make. Once everything had been pieced together, the sewing side of it too about an hour to get a complete jumpsuit.
All that needs doing now is the hood, the whiskers and fastenings then that will be done and dusted, giving me plenty of time to figure out the feet, gloves, crown and sceptre. 8D

EARS! (Posted 14th January 2011)
Are complete and the whole costume (aside from feet, gloves and tail* is cut out ready to sew. Can't really do much else until I locate this material for his tail :( Though can get the sleeves and hood sewn up, which I intend to do.
PROGRESS MADE! (Posted 13th January 2011)
Made a start on this today. The fleece for the jumpsuit is all cut now and ready to sew together. Will get pictures asap. The best thing about this is the fleece, its so warm and so soft. *love it*. Found some rather funky white buttons today to which I hope to sew on to the front. Going to cheat a little and have this as a zip-up suit and the buttons sewn on as decoration on a poppered flap which hides the zip. (if that makes sense) tbh that may take longer but I reaaaally cannot be bothered to make button holes.
Hopefully my paperclay will arrive soon so that I can start making claws for the gloves and the boots 8D Possibly, if theres enough and its easy to work with, may use it for the crown and certainly for part of the staff.
The only issue I am having atm is locating a perfect material for Max's tail. It is like a long pile grey/white/black mix fur. If anyone has any suggestions or knows where I can pick something like that up, i'll be most grateful
