22nd May 2013: Sanding my balls I have no idea why I keep doing this to myself but my costume is going to be picked up for Expo tomorrow and I just did some spray painting last night. For Mokujins hands I bought some kids plastic balls which deflated quite significantly when I cut the hand holes in them but it actually worked out ok as they are about the right size.
I've got LEDs to put in the head and I need to finish sticking the last of the wood effect down and then i'm done. I'm not happy with the finished result but maybe if I use it for another con/expo then I can improve on it a lot. It was just far too rushed. Oh well, onwards and upwards!

19th May 2013: 4 days until it's shipped! Only 4 days left until Mokujins ride to Expo arrives and the chains arrived today. Need to go into town tomorrow (oh crap it's actually today!!!) to get some silver spray paint and some kids plastic balls for hands and spray them up, finalise LEDs in the head and get a fake branch and leaf for the head and then I'm done!!!!!!

29th April 2013: Arms made Finished the arms and enlarged the head, much happier with the head now. I've run out of foam though, who thought 8 sheets wouldn't be anywhere near enough. The body is hard to put on and take off so I'll need to decide how I'm going to solve that.
Also I had forgotten Mokujin has his back carved with writing on it so I will need to do this also but this might make it easier to hide my method of putting it on or taking it off

28th April 2013: First try on of the body My first picture of the body and the head. The head is looking a bit small so going to make it a bit bigger, good job I just held it together with duct tape. Going to have to pull my finger out, Expo is fast approaching!
