19th March 2010: Travelling with Staryu Since I was taking the train down to MinamiCon, and I was also carrying craploads of other stuff (1 large suitcase, 1 heavy backpack, a skateboard and... A GIANT STAR FISH) I had to find a way to keep Staryu protected and also a way to carry him... somehow... this is what I came up with (a sheet and some strips of black fabric).

...my friends decided to dub him "bondage star"... I.. I don't even... HE'S A STAR FISH, JEEZ.

19th March 2010: Staryu Back Just an extra entry so you can see the back of Staryu.

19th March 2010: Staryu Finished! I hot-glued the gem in (not very securely I might add... it kept on falling out at MinamiCon) and he was done!

30th March 2009: Staryu pt. 5 Next, I gave it quite a few layers of paint. I used a textured spraypaint to give Staryu a starfish-like appearance :D

30th March 2009: Staryu pt. 4 Then, I covered the armoured parts with plaster au paris as well. I quickly popped in the red "gem" for show in this picture, although it wasn't attached at this point.

30th March 2009: Staryu pt. 3 Next, I taped on the "armour" shape on top of the already hardened plaster au paris shell.

30th March 2009: Staryu pt. 2 After taping Staryu together, I covered him in a layer of plaster au paris (aka mod rock) so he would keep his shape before I added on more details.

The red "gem" was a plastic soccer ball that I cut in half and inverted so only the red side would be visible.

30th March 2009: Staryu pt. 1 Lots of people have been asking me how I put together my Staryu, so here's the progress pictures with some explaination!

First of all, using MATH SKILLZ (which I really wasn't ever expecting to use, wtf SOH CAH TOA!) I worked out the exact size that each part of Staryu needed to be to make him height accurate (2'7") and then got to cutting him out and taping him together.
