Costume Information

i found some video's of our performance if anyone wants to see. :D


It would be a crime not to re-wear these to the expo. they are too hot for may, so October here we come!!

i am being Alvin, the Awsome-est one! my sister (roxy-chi) is being Theodore and my friend (kitsunefox) is being Simon.

Some work needs to be done before the expo, Feet, tails.


Angelo's Cartoon Character Gathering!

my cousin, Angelo Fantini Age 8, died on the 30th January 2009 from Cancer. During his illness the charity 'Clic Sargent' were extrmely helpful in looking after him and his family.
I have decided to host a charity event in Bristol to raise money for Clic Sargent.
Me and many of my friends will be walking around Bristol City Center dressed as different Cartoon Characters to raise as much money as we can!

*Update* - we raised over £800 yay!!!

Clic Sergant recently came to our school for an Enterprise day, and we're currently raising money for them. A good charity to work for.

Brilliant cosplay, it's such a great idea! Looking forward to this at expo!

fur!!!!! (Posted 31st March 2009)

ive glued all the fur on alvin's head!! it must have taken me about 2 hours! but im really pleased!! next job is to make the nose and teeth out of fimo!

Alvin head with foam! (Posted 27th March 2009)

i have been gluing on and carving out foam shapes for alvin's nose, mouth and cheeks. for now the mouth is going to be fixed as i only have 3 weeks until my charity event and i cant get my head round how to make a moving jaw for a cartoon head. there are easy tutorials everywhere for wolf or dog heads but nothing for cartoon faced costumes. plus my boyfriend is wearing this to the charity event and then im wearing it to london expo. im sure we have different sized when im going to wear it i will either edit the head i have now OR just start again.

head building (Posted 25th March 2009)

started building the head. i decided to use two hanging baskets as the base because they are strong and alot lighter than the wire mesh. i am now going to build up the cheeks and nose using foam before i cover it in fur.

Hoody! (Posted 16th March 2009)

hoody is finished! i got lucky with making the hood shape up! yay!! looks great! next i will make gloves and feet!!

been busy busy busy! (Posted 16th March 2009)

i couldnt wait to make a start on the alvin hoody! i mad it extra large for ultimate baggyness! i used a jumper pattern to make it but the pattern has no hood. i will just make that bit up. just need to cut out the 'A' with the yellow felt and stich it on!!

the legs (Posted 13th March 2009)

i have bought all of the fabric i need and i have started to make those extra baggy furry trousers for the legs. i am going to line them and put stuffing in between the lining and the fur to pad them out. next i will make the big red jumper! im not sure if i will make it as a hoody though or have a normal jumper and a hat....the jumper is going to be made from red fleece.
