21st April 2012: Wooo Fur Yeah the title is random...

So I've gotten to a point I can say I have almost finished him C: right now I am cutting out the body suit and I'll be hand sewing it then machine sewing it tomorow (although it may go into the week due to homework ^^;)! I have to finnish cutting out the fingers and sewing them together... I am also ordering resin for the eyes on Monday and they should be here on Wednesday for me to make the eyes, I think I can get this all done by sunday so all I have left is the air brushing!

I'm also entering this cosplay into the masqurade on the Saturday of MCM London!

Also got tie fabric to make the tie c: I might have to edit the pattern I made to fit the fabric... but it should be fine!

5th April 2012: Oh the joys :L I ran out of fleece :L I still have four and a half fingers to cut out plus the chest... I went to my fabric store yesterday to see if they had more in however they didn't :c.. I think I have found the same stuff online so I can get some of the really cheep stuff and some red fabric too c: Although my money wont be in my bank till Thursday :L so fingers crossed I can figure out somthing to do on the costume while I wait for the fabric :L

3rd March 2012: March 3rd 2012 The costume is on a slight hatus for a minute due to this thing called illness T__T
I've worked on the stilts and I have nearly finnished one (gotta sort out the hand) and I have a feeling they wont fit in my suitcase... This shall travel to expo a little harder :L
I've added glue in the mouth so it can be painted, when I'm well enough to go and buy some acrylics...

Also I might have a few problems at the london MCM expo, I lack a handler :L I can figure somthing out probabbly... I mean I have a few months to persuade someone....

Here have a pic of the hand so far, the fingers are pinned on BTW

14th February 2012: Nealy finnished with foam I've just about finnished the head! The feet are also done! I'll get pictures up once I've taken them! I'm going to try and get the stilts started tomrow, also I hope to finnish the body padding (re-glung the arms and back ect...) Fur also came! it's soo floofy! I hope that I do have some spare for a cosplay I wanna do!

25th January 2012: 25th January I havent updated for a bit :L

So I still haven't finnished the body padding due to somthing really annoying called homework :L

So *fingers crossed* I hope to get that done this weekend aswell as installing a zip to the shirt that is the top half of the base of the body padding (I have to because the foam will come off if I put it on like a T-shirt). I'm also hoping to get the fur and fleece this weekend too and the ducktape next weekend.

I've nearly got the feet shaped, just gotta finnish the second one.
I've still got a bit to do on the head, the "mouth part thingie" is done and only has a bit of carving to do before I can glue and paint that part.
I've Nearly got the leg padding done, a bit shaping left to do on them
I've done the chest padding
I've glued the arm padding (with doesrnt let me use my elbows in the costume :L damm...)
I am yet to padd the stilts.

Will update here once I got more done.

29th December 2011: My timinga are wrong I've nearly done the body padding!!!

I'm still shaping the legs and are yet to attach the arm padding, but i'll be on it today! Also got my fingers crossed that I'll be able to start the head today too! gonna post some pictures later...

21st November 2011: Few more bits So I have got a few more bit's bought for donkey kong and decided on a few things! I know I dont speak for myself when I say I cant wait to see this thing come to life! (mainly friends ^^;). I have a really good feeling that I will have everything sorted out before christmas so I can get started ASAP (hopefully after christmas, maybe earlier!)

Things I have bhought:
Stilts, still gotta sort one out
Underlayer for duct tape dummy, dont wanna dystroy nice cloths
Leggings for padding
balaclava base, gonna attach elastic to it soon!
Fur samples!

Things I have planned to do before I get fur and other stuff like that...

Duct tape dummy! (still gotta get duct tape...)

Also decided on my fleece and also hoping to do a video diary of the making of this thing! Might start soon if I can find a way to film it...

31st October 2011: A few months later And I have problems with the group... It's a long story but If you really want me to explain PM me.

However Donkey kong has ofically been started! I've got one of the stilts, gonna go to town later to pick up the other one then at some point I'm gonna put wood on the bottom maybe (depending on how well I walk without it) to spread my weight.

The next thing I'm looking to do is get the rest of the supplyies witch I wont be able to get unless it's really cheep until christmas but I'm looking for them at this minute.

The main thing I'm looking for is the fur, I'm hoping to use some AC356 but need to find the right colour... yay...

probablly the next update will be when I get all the supplyies (or on their way) and maybe have started too.


So about DK, He'll be making his debue appearance at the mcm expo in may 2012 as part of a (hopefull) mario and sonic at the london 2012 olymipc games group (hint first debue at london and in 2012 XP)although that plan may change into a mario group or donkey kong country depening on happens with the other group members do and if they can make it.

Currently I'm planning out a timetable to help make my cosplay, I need one to be fair because of a few other thing's I'll be doing along with making this costume, witch are

Possibly helping my friend with her cosplay

so currently my plan is to give myself time to make/ do x part so for those who wanna know this is the order I'll be doing em

1st january-15th jan Body padding
16th january-29th jan head foaming
30th january-12th febuary arms and feet padding
13th febuary-26th feb body sewing
27th febuary-11th march head sewing
12th march-25th march hand and feet sewing

these are just gidelines for myself and I know that it wont be as simple to do it like that, may gain time may loose it but all the time lost I have about two months to re-gain it so please dont rant about how it wwont work out like that!

next update will be sometime
