25th October 2010: Done! Finally finished XD This took way too long to make! He's off to America now... Bye Kovu!
4th October 2010: Head Finished Head is finished. Didn't turn out quite as I expected, but I still like the end result. And the commissioner thinks he's cute, so that's all that really matters.
16th September 2010: Tail Wow, lack of progress much
Tail spine has been finished and works so amazingly well 83 Did this for free for the customer as an experiment, but will be offering moving tails for £30 from now on.
Also the head has been lined and the body plan worked out. Thanks to school for slowing me down, but Kovu should be finished by the end of the month.
20th August 2010: Updates 20/08/2010 Feet and handpaws done
Starting to work out how to make a nice, bouncy, 'whip-action' tail- Will begin work on that tomorrow.
16th August 2010: Head Foaming Finished As the title says
It is my most comfortable head to date, the only parts in contact with the wearer's head are the hat and the lower jaw. This makes it surprisingly cool and a lot less claustrophobic, and also means cleaning has to be performed less often. After so much grief this head has given me, I am so happy to have it actually looking pretty good.
Hooray for improvement! :D
5th August 2010: ARGH >_< Ugh... This head is giving me so much trouble. I keep getting a canine shape from it, need more practice with felines -__-
On top of that, some fur I ordered then cancelled from CRs Crafts because I didn't have a credit card, has apparently still been sent to me. I HAVEN'T PAID FOR IT, but it's gonna arrive and I'm going to have to pay to send it back -__-
Or make items and sell them... Let's see how much it totals up to.
4th August 2010: DTD Duct Tape Dummy, shoes and handprints have arrived, along with the foam. Let's get this head started!
1st August 2010: Kanekalon Hair Wefts God I love these things <33
Definate recommendation for lion's manes, horse's tails etc. Anything with long fur basically. They're so much better than wigs and so much cheaper than NFT's long fur, plus they come in an amazing variety of colours.
Anyway they arrived today, and now I'm having a hard time keeping them away from the cat's claws to weft them together on the machine.
1st August 2010: Fur! Ordered the fur from http://www.fabric.com
Hopefully it will arrive in a week or so.
Shipping was a killer, but totally worth it for this quality of fur.
