18th May 2013: Revealed.. So I've pulled the tape free minus a few glitches that's easily fixed I'm happy with the progress.
14th May 2013: Issues So I scrapped making the suit from scratch & now painting layers of fabric paint to this suit that's has a top synthetic - rubber layer so makes it easy for painting! I pray nothing will get past the tape I've done three- four coats so far but will continue this all week until I'm happy I can't see any more black.
I've broke the horns off since packing & travelling will likely so the job so decided drilling holes & screwing the horns will be the save way to & just need to touch up parts of the yellow and horns while making a one new horn as one old horn won't accept its fate of being screwed on.
24th March 2013: He was a skater boi. Skateboard which was originally Teal has been coated about 50 times like the helmet with acrylic yellow, I'm hoping a few more coats should do the trick so I can add the black detail and seal the board.
31st January 2013: Helmet & Wig I've added the seams around the horns but I'll need to do another round of paint still to neaten things up and likely another few coats to the helmets base before sealing it all.
25th November 2012: Horn test I've attached the horns (Not permanently atm)the current placement looked fine until I tried the helmet on; but they look to far back but it was more for balance so they don't fall off once I 'secure' them in place. The helmet was already heavy enough on it's own;;
13th October 2012: The fumes still linger. The paint job on this thing is going to take a few layers to hide the black shell.
4th October 2012: Base coat I started to give it an undercoat of acrylic paint first.
Even though I'm spray painting it. This might ease the black off and make it easier for spraying...and stick better?
4th October 2012: The base It finally arrived! :DD
