long neck (Posted 21st October 2012)

neck extended, head and ears not yet attached

life size!! (Posted 21st October 2012)

We cant fit inside our workshop with the head on lol, need to tidy up some edges and pull the gaps together but here is the body

fibre optics (Posted 18th October 2012)

ive started to put the fibre optics into the neck of the shishi. I glued the battery pack to the inside of the fabric and then poked through each individual light and glued it in place. i then turned the fabric over and cut the cables off so they are not too long.

side profile (Posted 18th October 2012)

here is a side profile of the face, sorry about all the entries i just like to have all the progress pictures up for everyone to see.

eyebrows! (Posted 18th October 2012)

i made the 4 eyebrows with some long pile white fur. He is starting to look a bit too cute for my liking...maybe i should remove the face and just have the skeleton lol

face on (Posted 18th October 2012)

here it is with the face just sat on the skeleton.

scarey face!! (Posted 18th October 2012)

here is the skeleton of the face, it looks a bit creepy lol. ive added some black fabric around the eye sockets and also some fur around the forehead and chin.

finished! (Posted 18th October 2012)

i need to touch up the paint in a few places but apart from that it is ready for face and furring

painting antlers (Posted 18th October 2012)

i decided to paint them gold so that the lights would reflect of them even more, i had to do a 2nd coat of pva glue to stop the paint from chipping.

let there be light! (Posted 18th October 2012)

woo looks so bright and shiny! next job is painting the antlers!
