Digitigrade Stilts Mk1 (Posted 22nd January 2013)

Got around to finally creating one of my digitigrade stilts (think dog leg), it was quite uncomfortable but I had just knocked it together in about 30 minutes so needs a lot more refining. It was a bit awkward to stand up but I only had one so hopefully when I've made the two it'll be easy enough.

Stand a total of 2 metres tall while fully standing up but will probably be hunched over a bit more when in full costume.

Reference toy arrived (Posted 19th January 2013)

I bought the Elite Zealot toy from the US as I find unless I have a good set of turn around images it's hard to see details which is where the toy comes in!

Duct tape dummied (Posted 19th January 2013)

I've duct tape dummied my arm now so I have a form to build the leather "biker" sleeves. This is going to be interesting, I plan to wear a black morphsuit underneath so I'll need to remember to leave some room for stretch and pull in it.

Phear my 1337 photoshop skillz!! (Posted 12th January 2013)

Started planning out how the costume is going to work(ish) hopefully that central egg will be more sausage shaped by the time the costume is finished though ;) I thought "ace! I'm going to be much taller" then realised I'm going to have to hunch my back.

Materials arrived! Yay (Posted 10th January 2013)

My materials arrived, I'll need to learn how to sew pleather now though.

Leathers! (Posted 1st December 2012)

Thanks to the brilliant people here are CI, I've sourced some material that should be perfect for the "clothing". Fake crocodile skin!
