21st May 2013: jet pack!!! i have been working on this for about 6 months on and off.
The base is cardboard layered with paper mache then more cardboard and then white matt paint.
As i love to reuse stuff i forced my partner to drink loads of orange juice to creat one part and then did loads of washing to get some nice square boxes. Also destroyed my partners wardrobe to get some nice poles (it feel down anyway :P)
It is weighty but i have balanced the weight out and the main pressure is on my lower back.
I lliterally but the clear bra straps onto night however one snapped so it was a dash around my flat to find alternatives XD. the waist band was not included in my design but it gives more control over the weight. Overall im really pleased with it.
its not accurate but i am hoping to do some more paint detail and then we are all complete
9th April 2013: gloves pretty simple but took ages.
Long leather gloves, cut into 3 parts then sown back on to give the layer effect.
4th April 2013: flowers So i wanted to make the flowers ....goes to youtube... What you have to burn the fabric ...augh you have to be able to do origami.. remembered i had an amazing book of how to. So simple bingo blue flower made and anyone can make them even if you can't really sow.
