1st June 2011: Doneness and hiatus. Well I just managed to get done for expo. I think it looked ok for the short amount of time I was actually in it and the less said about my masquerade fail the better ¬_¬ I think the Carl costume turned out a lot better than mine.
I'm going to put this costume on hiatus for a while as it has a few breaks etc which need fixing but I don't really want to look at it for a bit. I'm going to cut the hat down a bit in hopes it will be more stable, re-paint it and this time have time to seal it.
7th May 2011: Arms and legs. Arms and legs are now just about ready for painting :D Thank you muchly to LimeGreenJelly for helping out with the arms. Legs were made in about 3-4 hours today.
Next will be buying some more bukrum and glue sticks to finish off the hat. Somehow there are never enough glue sticks ¬_¬
28th April 2011: stuff. Have been buying lots of materials and making a proper start on this.
Bought wig, contacts, foam, black lycra and some other bits and pieces. Have cut the pieces for the hat. Its so huge!
31st January 2011: Shoes. Bought some transparent shoes to start making the legs around. They will be horendously uncomfortable but will hopefully give the illusion of me hovering.
12th November 2010: It has begun! Made a start on this yesterday. ^_^
I decided to start with the Carl costume for my doll Raphael. I had an old set of blue eyes which he can use. (I forgot how alarming his non-vampire head can be. Big eyes are big :s) I alredy had a blonde wig for him. Its not a perfect match for Carls hair but with some trimming and styling should be good enough. Especially since he will have a hat on :P
Buckrum pices are cut for the hat. Will be getting fabric tomorrow so it can be covered. Then I can start on his shoes and clothes ^_^
