Progress Journal

27th January 2013


the arms are mad up from a inner arm and a outer are which was then filled in between with stuffing. i will hand stich them to the costume to finish

27th January 2013


finally we cut out the eye holes and the arm holes and attached the eyes, we glued some of the fabric down around his cheeks

27th January 2013


we then sewed all the pieces together on the machine and pulled it over the foam frame

27th January 2013

full body

we got lucky and just made this up as we went along

27th January 2013

fabric covering

due to patamon's size and shape there is no sewing pattern in the world that you could modify to fit. So we drew the patten piece shapes directly onto the foam and then fpinned the fabric along the lines, the then cut it all out

27th January 2013

i see you!

i placed the eyes on the shell to see if it looked ok

27th January 2013

patamon eyes

i have finished his eyes! i used the black vinil for the pupils and edges

20th January 2013


the eyes are made from cheap clear plastic bowls cut up and painted from asda

20th January 2013

all coming together

now you can see the whole costume coming together, the poles sticking out of the head is for the wing frame

20th January 2013


i glued some more foam to create legs, they are attached to the feet

20th January 2013

side view


20th January 2013

a face!

i carved some expanding foam to give patamon more of a face!

13th January 2013

body padding

finally we added a piece of foam between the legs so the crutch was dropped and the feet are kept apart

13th January 2013


we also made a padded suit to wear underneath the foam suit so that he is a bit larger at the bottom

13th January 2013


next we cut some arm holes and draw on his face .

13th January 2013


so patamon is basically a giant egg shape, so what i did is attached a huge piece of foam around the hanging basket to start it off looks really funny at the moment

13th January 2013

head progress

the head started off as a foam helmet which i attached to a card hanging basket with expanding foam
