29th July 2012: teeny bits more... Actually got around to working on the spine/ribs a few minutes this week.
All the tape was coming off, so I put some more tape around it all, pva glue. pva glue and newspaper around the spine and the rib join, then some more tape - much neater than the base tape. Then pva glued over everything. Well, two of them are done like this. Two more to go. It's actually quite fiddley.
A few days ago I shaped some loo rolls and covered them in a rough layer of masking tape. Not sure the best way to work with them yet, so I'm leaving them until last. I'm desperate for this photoshoot - it's already taken me almost 2 months over due. :( My little helpers went on holidays too and I have a load of work and other cosplay antics to do this week. EEK! Busy busy. As you know I need my rest times and well, I just feel like my brain has switched off from everything. This has taken me an hour to type :/
I will remember to take and post an update image of the hoover as it is now.
