arms (Posted 27th January 2013)

the arms are mad up from a inner arm and a outer are which was then filled in between with stuffing. i will hand stich them to the costume to finish

cute! (Posted 27th January 2013)

finally we cut out the eye holes and the arm holes and attached the eyes, we glued some of the fabric down around his cheeks

stitched (Posted 27th January 2013)

we then sewed all the pieces together on the machine and pulled it over the foam frame

full body (Posted 27th January 2013)

we got lucky and just made this up as we went along

fabric covering (Posted 27th January 2013)

due to patamon's size and shape there is no sewing pattern in the world that you could modify to fit. So we drew the patten piece shapes directly onto the foam and then fpinned the fabric along the lines, the then cut it all out

i see you! (Posted 27th January 2013)

i placed the eyes on the shell to see if it looked ok

patamon eyes (Posted 27th January 2013)

i have finished his eyes! i used the black vinil for the pupils and edges

eyes (Posted 20th January 2013)

the eyes are made from cheap clear plastic bowls cut up and painted from asda

all coming together (Posted 20th January 2013)

now you can see the whole costume coming together, the poles sticking out of the head is for the wing frame

legs (Posted 20th January 2013)

i glued some more foam to create legs, they are attached to the feet

side view (Posted 20th January 2013)


a face! (Posted 20th January 2013)

i carved some expanding foam to give patamon more of a face!

body padding (Posted 13th January 2013)

finally we added a piece of foam between the legs so the crutch was dropped and the feet are kept apart

body (Posted 13th January 2013)

we also made a padded suit to wear underneath the foam suit so that he is a bit larger at the bottom

body (Posted 13th January 2013)

next we cut some arm holes and draw on his face .

body (Posted 13th January 2013)

so patamon is basically a giant egg shape, so what i did is attached a huge piece of foam around the hanging basket to start it off looks really funny at the moment

head progress (Posted 13th January 2013)

the head started off as a foam helmet which i attached to a card hanging basket with expanding foam
