Journal

Suit so far (Posted 5th March 2012)

The suit has been sewn together and brushed out to try and hide any lines from being stitched together. I have painted the black swirls onto my plush parts and they are currently pinned onto the suit. Soon to be sewn on.

Stilts WIP (Posted 8th February 2012)

Stilts! Well start of anyway. Soon as I (Darkie) Got home today I made these ASAP So I can bring them to Koiice on my next trip to see her in afew days! Rather happy with it so far >D

Pinned Progress (Posted 6th February 2012)

Last night we did pinned progress. At the moment it is rather baggy but once sewn it will look better! So much fur! Also the shoes have been furred up and clawed

Foam Body and Feet (Posted 5th February 2012)

Yesterday me and Darkiekun used an old pair of thick tights to make the foam legs. We also used some old shoes to make the back feet. Doesn't look like much at the moment but soon it will! Hopefully there will be some furring soon!

Teeth (Posted 1st February 2012)

Teeth where made from Fimo and then we made a large sausage shape for the gums. Once we had this we pushed in the cooked fimo teeth and moulded it to look better before cooking and then pulled out the teeth to glue them in. Once that was done we then attached into Ammy's mouth.

Weapon painted (Posted 1st February 2012)

I also finished painting the weapon in a sap green aswell as abit of black to get it into a used weapon condition

Trimmed (Posted 1st February 2012)

Today Darkie finished sewing the fur and started trimming down the muzzle and attached the nose

Fur Start (Posted 30th January 2012)

DarkieKun has now started on furring the head, pulling off the masking tape and using that as a base shapes for the different cuts of the head. Red and white, after hot gluing them to the head, she has now started the process of sewing them together.

While I have started to paper maché the Dev.Ret weapon, I have got around the initial patterns on the plate, I need to do the edges now.

Shopping (Posted 30th January 2012)

Today Darkie and Me will be going out shopping to see if we can find any nice fur in Derby. Aswell as any fimo, zips, fire materials and all that good stuff! Can't wait to see what we end up getting

::EDIT::
We found the most amazing fur ever, so amazing it was £26 a metre. -__-
It was so lovely we bought 3 and a half metres of it. We also found some good red fur for the markings.

Almost done! (Posted 30th January 2012)

Here is the semi completed head all carved and has a jaw helded in with elastic and has been covered in masking tape before drawing out the patterns on it.

Ammy Head start 2 (Posted 30th January 2012)

Adding more foam and carving Ammy's head started to take shape!

Ammy Head start (Posted 30th January 2012)

Darkie here! Today I started Ammy's head using the Helmet using 2 and a half pieces of the foam we got I slowly started to build together the head

Divine Retribution finish (Posted 30th January 2012)

Well after drawing out all of the symbols and shapes I had DarkieKun help and cut them all out as I stuck them all onto the cardboard, the next plan now it is complete is to paper maché the entire thing.

Divine Retribution start (Posted 30th January 2012)

Today I have started on Okami's weapon Divine Retribution. Since there are many designs I picked the most complicated one from google xD
I have used my good old cardboard for the base and have started to draw the symbols onto foam and cut them out.

Helmet (Posted 20th January 2012)

Woo more progress! I have bought a horse riding helmet from Ebay for £8.50 last night. It should take two to three working days to arrive then Darkie will start work on the foam for Ammys head ^^ We have also sent off for a test strip of fur. ^^

::EDIT::
The foam for the head has now been bought, when Stephie comes down to my uni room we shall be starting on the head with progress pictures ^^

Foam (Posted 12th December 2011)

We have spent all day looking for Foam and we finally have the foam! Progress photos soon of the Weapon of doom!

Secret... shhh (Posted 3rd November 2011)

It seems like Darkie has found a spare motor in her room. This is good news ^^ Saves time and money for our secret weapon ;)
We have been discussing how to go about this secret weapon but I think with some foam material's it should work perfectly ^w^
