Information

I've been putting off trying my hand at a mascot-esque type costume for the longest time now. Having now found a place to work on one, I'm going to finally give it a go with Delphox. Neck down, it looks so simple to make, the head will be the real challenge.

But hey, it's all coming together. Head is absolutely massive, but I'd say pretty damn good for a first attempt :D

Kitacon update: Thanks to everyone who praised my work, seems like it really paid off :D Also yes, at the party I was hot, and yes by the end I was tired

J-Con update: Gonna wear Saturday afternoon at J-con this year. Do come say hello :D

MCM Update: Gonna be in the masquerade (0.o), not expecting to win anything, but trying to just have a bit of fun anyway
Update: Well... how I managed to win judges award I'll never know XD

Finished!!! (...ish)

So it's done, finally... except one thing.
I was going to make shoe covers to give me paws but I just don't have the time now. Sisters birthday tonight (so I can't work on them) and I'm packing it all up tomorrow so... gonna wear my black boots and hope not too much attention is drawn by them. They'll be a thing to add to the ensemble at a later date.
Btw, so glad the weather has been getting a little colder again 'cause this entire outfit is made of fleece and is stupidly cozy during all this cold. Love it :D

Yay, a photo!

Finally, I remembered to get a picture '-.-

So in this session I literally took chunks out of my fingers, making the tips bleed and sting for a couple of days, and I still can't use them properly. Good thing i'm roght handed and the cuts are on the left really.

Battle injuries

Forgot photo's again -.-

So I've had another 2 sessions of working on it since my last entry. The first one, whilst hacking away at foam, I successfully managed to slice a long and deep cut into my finger. Bled so much, was ridiculous.

Today, I managed to get PVA glue into a cut on another finger (which I got biting my nails too much). Seem to have gotten it all out, but my god it hurt!

Next time: Probably some other injury, and photo's hopefully, but progress is going well, it's actually starting to look like a Delphox now anyway. Need to attach the ears though.

We're making a start!

After lugging a heap ton of upholstery foam across my town center to the workshop I'm building at (which was awful, never again -.-), I finally made a start on the head today (forgot to take pictures though). So far I've just assembled the pieces, cut the head hole and made a start at making it round, which is proving to be a lot harder than I thought. Still, I'll keep at it, I'm determined not to give up on this. It just might now look as good as I imagined it to be in my head -_-'
