Good luck on the rest. Keep it up.

Clever idea to use a scaffolders harness to hold the wing frame! I need to make some large wings myself at some point and was looking at the corset method. Good luck with the rest.

Ooh, I saw pics of this a while back but had no idea who it was! This is actually amazing. I love del Toro's creatures (it's nice to know that someone can still get it right without CG!) and this looks like it actually could be pulled from the set of the movie :). Amazing work!

CrystalNeko avatar

CrystalNeko - 9th April 2011
What's this? I can't believe I haven't commented on this before!! THIS MUST BE FIXED!
This is most definitely your best costume yet and definitely a well deserved showcase! You've got the proportions PERFECT and I have to say, it was rather terrifying standing right behind you in the masquerade as you were just so big! I love the details and this costume in general!

JakeX avatar

JakeX - 14th April 2011
