Costume Information

Cost : £50 approx
Time Taken : 10 hours

Made it because a group of friends wanted to go as Patapon to London MCM May 2011 and I wanted to join in.

Hardest part was sourcing the materials. It was made in an afternoon with some help from Dad and his power tools.
The eye was made by screwing two hoops together, trapping the black fabric between them (and further securing with spray contact adhesive).

White felt and black pupil were attached in the same way.

Banner pole was constructed out of a piece of dowel with a hook attached - the banner itself had an eye to slide over the hook. Banner cloth was attached to the support pole with contact adhesive.

Headdress was a black headband and three cardboard cut-out feathers tucked in and glued on.

This took me and my dad about an afternoon to construct.
