London Expo 2012 Straw Hats

Went to London Expo today dressed as skeleton Soul King Brook. Teaming up with Ben Franky Ward-Geddes & Co. No one does One Piece Franky like Ben.

Costume stayed in tact. thou did not really do an outdoor windy test as a bit cold some company. Stuff I'd like to improve for next time, re-point crown tips, Enlarge the fastenings, More field testing of microphone, Thou I'm sure it help me out a bit today.

You can keep your hat on baby!

Best Tom Jones impression to announce Another problem solved :).
To keep the crown on in blows of wind or even if I tilt my head the wrong way, I have made the device pictured.
2 bit of wood (held it place by bits of rubber) come out from the skull, passing through the wig and between two wooden sticks fixed within the crown. A fastening (in this case a cut down tent peg)is then used to prevent the sticks from passing back through.
The result is that the crown stays on even when upside down.

Sound Issue Fixed

Tested today. Speaker sends out sound while mic in use :).
Macally portable stereo speaker for ipod nano g4,Olympus voice recorder VN-8500PC, Connection cable one female and one male end, Small microphone (like headphone w/ mic), AAA battery X 4.
Set Mic sense to low and a high volume output.
according to battery life should work for about 6 hours. which is plenty of outfit wear time for a costume like this.

I have no eyes

while I've been using black fabric to cover my eyes since I first did Brook back in 2010. I always taped or glued the fabric in place which would eventually fail to hold its grip on the mask. I have now realised that the fabric could be sewn to the mask and I have done so.
I had also finished the heart shape sunglasses, But they have fallen apart :(. I'm now going to bind the glasses with glue and gold cotton. To secure them to the head I shall and a kind of headband.

Flowers DONE.

I've now finished adding the flowers to the flares. :)

I'm sure I should be able to the other aspects of the costume in time now.

could always tidy them up a bit but I can leave that till much later.

Petals !!!

I worked that with 80 petals to sew its gonna take me another month to get the flares done. thankfully there is June and July before Ame. Currently lacking motivation to get on with but I've got a whole week booked off work soon. so Hopefully I force myself to get most/ all of it done then. Heart frame shades arrived today, I'll have to alter them. that will be fun at some point.

[will add image once I've finished 1st of 16 flowers.]

Red flowers.

I was going by this image until today, cut out the flower shapes of dark red and current have one sewed on to my flares. Now I favoring the white. So kind of wasted £2 worth of red. Also it take me 5 days to cut out shapes. To be more camera friendly seems I'd be better off with white.

3 inchs off my crown

The main body of the crown is done. It even completely drawfed the afro whenI tried a little test. Hopefully removing 3 inchs off the bottom has fixed this issue. Now just to do the base rim and stick on jewels.
