Great stuff! The use of paint on the head is spectacular, this is why I could never work with fur, it's just so up in the air until you get the final trimming/airbrushing in place.

Fantastic progress! Also a genius idea using sunglass lenses for the eyes, I think I may have to borrow that idea :)

Journal

puss full (Posted 24th October 2011)

all thats left to do is add his cape, hat and belt.

puss head (Posted 17th October 2011)

almost finished!! painted the tabby stripes on and re painted the eyes

painting the head (Posted 13th October 2011)

when this is dry i will add puss's tabby stripes. i also need to re-paint the eyes as the paint came off with the masking tape. :s

painting the body suit (Posted 13th October 2011)

ive painted the body suit, i started by spraying it with orange spray paint, then i brushed a yellow colour though with watered down acrylic paints

cape 2 (Posted 1st October 2011)

ive added the red stripe and altered the collar so that it will sit correctly around my neck, i also made the little jewel out of fimo and beads!

cape (Posted 1st October 2011)

this is the start for the collar for his cape, its made from faux leather the same as his boots

boots (Posted 1st October 2011)

boots are finished!!

body suit 90% complete (Posted 1st October 2011)

made up the body suit, next is to air brush it ginger

fur finished! (Posted 1st October 2011)

ive hand sewn all the fur edges so that its all neat, next step is to make him into a ginger tabby!

head progress - adding fur (Posted 1st October 2011)

started to glue on the fur, im gonna hand sew the edges to make it all neat

head progress (Posted 1st October 2011)

glued on the eyes, teeth and tongue! looks abit scarey at the moment

boots (Posted 26th September 2011)

ive started the boots, id say they are about 85% complete. i made them out of some crocs with foam, then i hot glued some leather and very heavy interfacing to get this result.

head progress 7 (Posted 26th September 2011)

this is what the head looks like with the eyes

fimo bits (Posted 26th September 2011)

i made puss's teeth and tounge from fimo, i then painted some sunglasses lenses as cats eyes

head progress 5 (Posted 26th September 2011)

foam carved out to shape puss's head, just a few holes to fill

head progress 4 (Posted 26th September 2011)

ive added some card so that it will be easier to build up more foam to shape the head

head progress 3 (Posted 26th September 2011)

the head with a jaw!

head progress 2 (Posted 26th September 2011)

here is the head with the top of the foam helmet, i hot glued it over a balaclava, i got the technique from the CI tutorials

head progress 1 (Posted 26th September 2011)

me and my sister mogwai k have been a bit lazy when it comes to updating our journals, been working on these costumes since july but only updating now! the 1st pic is me making my foam helmet.
