27th August 2011: Latex Arm stage three And finally after we felt happy with all the layers we put on, We took the arm off our friend, it took some time to take it off him but we finally got there :). So now we have the mold of the arm!!! i wish i could say me and vexer are close to finishing the latex arm. . . but we have a long way to go. . and thats juston the arm part, not the rest of our costumes -cry-
27th August 2011: Latex Arm stage two 3 layers later, Here we have the arm progress, Each layer had to be done one at a time, air dryed/ hair dryer, then another layer added and so on and so forth. This picture is of the arm after it's 3rd layer was added and left to dry :3
27th August 2011: Latex Arm Stage one Victims arm wrapped in clean film so that we could start making the latex arm, This was a risky move, originally we were just going to latex our friends arm, however due to him shaving her managedto cut himself a million times and as soon as we applied the latex he started to well scream in pain. So this was a plan i came up with, we weren't to sure if the latex was going to stick to te clean film to create the shape, however luck was on our side and it worked like a charm :)
27th August 2011: Bodice progress 2 after 2 identical shapes were cut out it was time to pin them together inside out and start sewing. New sewing machine is evil, it sews by itself without a pedal, it's like a ghost 00! Anyway, it was then sewn together, The top of the bodice had to be unstitched and re done twice to finally get the right shape i wanted at the bust front. Until my new adjustable manniquen turns up there isn't much more work i can do on the bodice.
27th August 2011: Bodice progress1 Once my rubbish attempt was complete i moved onto the duchess satin. i made sure to shape the bodice a lot better on this attempt and im really happy with it. I did the bodice twice to ensure the fabric was thick
27th August 2011: Bodice try 1 So i copied the shape of a corset i had onto this fabric, i decided to do a test run before i used my duchess satin because the real fabric was so expensive. The test went well and was pinned, unfortunatly this was the best i could do without a adjustable mannequin.
