out of time

run out of time. Hope the shoes (flipflop ones) hold. I don't think I'll take the other ones. too bulky.

24th May 2011

feet

bought some flip flops today, will attach the felt to the flip flops (glue and staples) and add wadding to the insides. and hope for the best

23rd May 2011

paint dry

So I brought the head and feet inside to work on them. Put small holes in the face so I can see out of them. probably will stick wig to mask so its in one position, especially on the face, where bits of moving hair can disrupt my view. Need to paint on eyes next. Was going to attach elastic to the mask to keep it on. However, I tested it, and can't seem to find a suitable place to put the elastic so I can still see out of the eyeholes.

Will have to buy a cheap quality wig from the local fancy dress shop to put underneath to give thicker hair at the back, as my own hair is visible.

However, the shoes aren't going as planned. Even though I measured my feet before making them. It seems all my shoes are too long to wear. so its either barefoot (ouch) or find some alternatives. Some snug fitting shoes (trainers are too long), or I'll have to make something else (quickly). I have a pair of big slippers - I could cover these in pink felt. They are very comfy to walk around in. Probably could manage all day too.

messy

papier mache'd the head and feet this morning, before it started raining. managed to get paste everywhere, and not just on the items it was meant for. Will check on them later and give them an extra coat

12th May 2011

update

did more today. I made the dress. hemmed it round, everything. Its huge. Big n baggy.

Will fit 5 skinny humans or 1 standard sized lemming.

Finished the gloves, machined sewed them together over the hand sewing, just to be sure that they'll hold.

Started cutting and shaping the chicken wire, have made two feet and a head shape. Will papier mache these next. Then will decide to paint or cover them in felt when dry.

12th February 2011

material bought

bought blue cotton and flesh coloured felt today

3rd January 2011

planning

yup I'm gonna be a lemming.

I loved that game, and after downloading a trial for the PS3, I'm gonna love it again.

I so want a group cosplay of Lemmings, like at Expo or something, all walking along in a line

so I've decided. This is gonna be one of my outfits for May expo.
should be fairly easy to make. light blue material to make a fake undergarment or a kingfisher blue catsuit. navy blue material to make flared dress. flesh material to make the hands, feet and head and wadding to pad it out. and a longish green wig.

I'm looking forward to this outfit
