Shopping List



The sleeves (Posted 15th August 2012)

The sleeves had to be made separately from the body part (duh), haha. Once the shapes were cut out... I had the task of doing the damn design on each piece of material. I started by drawing it out freehand with a piece of chalk. After a few hours, when I had drawn them both out (and was happy that they both looked as similar as I could accomplish), I then had to fabric paint the design out. However, I had to do it twice. First with WHITE fabric paint, as a base. Because the UV green paint would not go straight on to a black fabric :( - So, painted out each design with white - let it dry - and then go over with green. And, voila - after about 4 days, they were all done, ironed (to fix the paint on), washed, and sewn onto the body piece.

Mask (Posted 29th July 2012)

The mask was one of those things which I wasn't sure if it would work OK, but it ended up being fine, thank god! I used a "party" mask as a base (the ones you get from fancy dress shops?) - I then cut a portion of the top part off, as well as the nose. Unmasked Zant has a flat, large, weirdly shaped nose - so I used foam to shape it out, and had to tape it into the mask and push it outwards, in order to make it look like his nose! I then just had to paint the mask white lots of coats, paint on the black around his eyes. I used foam (again lol) to make his orange eyes (and varnished them, to give them a shiny look). Lucky i had a wig which was perfect to cut a few pieces off - for the hair he has ;D

SHOES (Posted 2nd July 2012)

Made a start on the shoes today oTL. They were originally just bulky "builder" boots", I had to start by making the weird shape of them. Which was accomplished by shaping out bits of foams and duct taping them to the shoes. Extra tape was added to strengthen them. Once the shape was fine, I did lots of base coats of white paint, and then painted them gold. The next stage was adding on all the raised golden details (the shoes seems to have some odd kinda crocodile design on them? o_O) I had to cut out endless pieces of foam in order to get all the pieces I needed. Superglue them onto the shoes, and then paint them. And they were finished! Phew!

1 (Posted 27th June 2012)

Black fabric has been bought today, got 3 metres for £30... eek. its very very good quality fabric though, and wanted to get more than enough, to make sure i can do the ma-hoosive sleeves!! XD
