Costume Information

Cost : So far... £24
Time Taken : Started early March.

Going for something slightly more ambitious, this will test out my hand at making props (Namely the visor). I also hope to implement electronics into the visor to make it glow on and off in pulses.

Electronic Gizmos Part 2 (Posted 16th May 2009)

The Visor's electronics is now fully functional!!! After I glue the LED's into the mask, it shall glow just as in my last video. Hurrah!!!

2 days to go... (Posted 7th May 2009)

Witrh only 2 days left until Expo opens its doors to us, Godot is finally ready to go! Unfortunately... The electronics WILL NOT be ready in time (But will be done in the near future for future events). As a last minute umprovement, I am going to try and hunt down some freeze-hair spray inorder to control the wig a little better :P. Tis a bit wild at the moment isnt it? XD

Look forward to seeing everybody at the Comic Expo!

Wig Obtained! (Posted 23rd April 2009)

As it says in the title, I now have a Wig for Godot! Was the most feared part of making the costume and now that is done, Only the Waistcoat to Worry about!

Electronics update (Posted 20th April 2009)

Well... My first circuit board turned out not to work as I had drafted it. As frustrating as this may be, Im going to keep on trying! Ill be checking the circuit over for faults this coming week and possibly rebuilding the board from scratch. Until then... Bye!

Electronic Gizmos (Posted 14th April 2009)

The above link will take you to the prototype system which I have been developing for the visor. The source of light is nothing more than 2 single LEDs running through a dual op-amp system. This video was actually shot a fair while ago, and is currently being transferred over from breadboard over to a purpose made circuit board Ive had etched for the project.

Mugs andother stuff (Posted 10th April 2009)

More stuff was gotten over the last week. Ive namely gotten my hands on some sleeve adjusters and a Coffee mug (Which was actually harder to find than I thought it would be... :S)

All that is left to do is the Waistcoat and wig before Im finished.

Visor electronics will also be implemented in the coming weeks (I shoud hope to have a video posted when the time comes).

Until then, Peace out!

Visor Progress (Posted 4th April 2009)

Lots of work done on the Visor today. Mainly seeing its my first time experimenting with Wonderflex! Seemed to work ok. The roughness is still very apparent in the construction though. Im thinking of either sanding it and repainting or just adding more coats. unsure what to do as of yet. Will be hunting for sleeve adjusters over the next week.
