Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

21st August 2014: Duct Tape Dummy I have been buying lots of materials for this costume, I have also finished stuffing my duct tape dummy! Had two friends do this for me (and I could help at the start - definite pain after a while stuck in that position and lots of muscle ache for the rest of the day but worth it!

So far I have bought expanding foam plus foam gun, upholstery foam, a cycle helmet to build stuff on, papier mache powder, plasticine, soldering iron, scalpels for cutting foam etc - so far coming in over £160 and large amounts of money to go (still not bought any of the fabric, fur, latex, thinner foam, LED and electrical stuff, paints and casting materials...and probably a million other things I haven't thought of yet!

9th August 2014: True start of the journel This has been on my mind from minamicon as something I want to do - agreed with my friends to do it in two years time rather than just one, to have more time and also because most of the conventions I am going to next year are not suitable for such a big costume (kita floorspace-wise is too small and dont fancy my chances in the lifts at amechibi) .. banking on there being a residential campus based con going on in 2016 that I can take it to as well as London Expo

Been sketching ideas, researching plans and buying a crazy load of material over ebay, but this is the day I actually did something physically towards the costume - I stood in a strange position and my friends covered me with duct tape! Duct tape dummy get! just have to stuff it now!
