|Cost :||I'm now lost... estimating a price of £150|
|Time Taken :||I dont know|
|Fist completed Quadsuit!|
this guy was debued at the London MCM expo in May 2012, he was entered in the masqurade, I won nothing but it was still good fun, He also appeared at MCM Manchester and will be going to the Plymouth expo this December, he'll hopefully be returning to the London expo in 2013 (I have no money to go in october ;_;)
Overall it took me about five months to make on and off with school work needed to be completed. It cost me around £130 and it was worth every penny!
The costume is really fun to wear and slightly pratical as I can store small things in the arms like my phone ect... the only downfalls to wearing him are the heat and the fact it's hard to walk on all fours.

Wooo Fur (Posted 21st April 2012)
Yeah the title is random...
So I've gotten to a point I can say I have almost finished him C: right now I am cutting out the body suit and I'll be hand sewing it then machine sewing it tomorow (although it may go into the week due to homework ^^;)! I have to finnish cutting out the fingers and sewing them together... I am also ordering resin for the eyes on Monday and they should be here on Wednesday for me to make the eyes, I think I can get this all done by sunday so all I have left is the air brushing!
I'm also entering this cosplay into the masqurade on the Saturday of MCM London!
Also got tie fabric to make the tie c: I might have to edit the pattern I made to fit the fabric... but it should be fine!
Oh the joys :L (Posted 5th April 2012)
I ran out of fleece :L I still have four and a half fingers to cut out plus the chest... I went to my fabric store yesterday to see if they had more in however they didn't :c.. I think I have found the same stuff online so I can get some of the really cheep stuff and some red fabric too c: Although my money wont be in my bank till Thursday :L so fingers crossed I can figure out somthing to do on the costume while I wait for the fabric :L
March 3rd 2012 (Posted 3rd March 2012)
The costume is on a slight hatus for a minute due to this thing called illness T__T
Also I might have a few problems at the london MCM expo, I lack a handler :L I can figure somthing out probabbly... I mean I have a few months to persuade someone....
Here have a pic of the hand so far, the fingers are pinned on BTW
Nealy finnished with foam (Posted 14th February 2012)
I've just about finnished the head! The feet are also done! I'll get pictures up once I've taken them! I'm going to try and get the stilts started tomrow, also I hope to finnish the body padding (re-glung the arms and back ect...) Fur also came! it's soo floofy! I hope that I do have some spare for a cosplay I wanna do!
25th January (Posted 25th January 2012)
I havent updated for a bit :L
So I still haven't finnished the body padding due to somthing really annoying called homework :L
So *fingers crossed* I hope to get that done this weekend aswell as installing a zip to the shirt that is the top half of the base of the body padding (I have to because the foam will come off if I put it on like a T-shirt). I'm also hoping to get the fur and fleece this weekend too and the ducktape next weekend.
I've nearly got the feet shaped, just gotta finnish the second one.
Will update here once I got more done.
My timinga are wrong (Posted 29th December 2011)
I've nearly done the body padding!!!
I'm still shaping the legs and are yet to attach the arm padding, but i'll be on it today! Also got my fingers crossed that I'll be able to start the head today too! gonna post some pictures later...
Few more bits (Posted 21st November 2011)
So I have got a few more bit's bought for donkey kong and decided on a few things! I know I dont speak for myself when I say I cant wait to see this thing come to life! (mainly friends ^^;). I have a really good feeling that I will have everything sorted out before christmas so I can get started ASAP (hopefully after christmas, maybe earlier!)
Things I have bhought:
Things I have planned to do before I get fur and other stuff like that...
Duct tape dummy! (still gotta get duct tape...)
Also decided on my fleece and also hoping to do a video diary of the making of this thing! Might start soon if I can find a way to film it...
A few months later (Posted 31st October 2011)
And I have problems with the group... It's a long story but If you really want me to explain PM me.
However Donkey kong has ofically been started! I've got one of the stilts, gonna go to town later to pick up the other one then at some point I'm gonna put wood on the bottom maybe (depending on how well I walk without it) to spread my weight.
The next thing I'm looking to do is get the rest of the supplyies witch I wont be able to get unless it's really cheep until christmas but I'm looking for them at this minute.
The main thing I'm looking for is the fur, I'm hoping to use some AC356 but need to find the right colour... yay...
probablly the next update will be when I get all the supplyies (or on their way) and maybe have started too.
