Step 1: Oscar's Head - Part 1
The green strap on the top is what holds my 3 fingers (middle, index, and pinky). I attached this strap with hot glue. And then my thumb goes into the bottom loop. The pointer finger goes into the blue loop to move the eyebrows (see step 2).
Step 2: Oscar's Head - Part 2
The hardest part was trying to figure out how to make Oscar's eyebrows move. This was something I considered just not doing. But it does add that little something extra. So what I did was I took a wire coat hanger and bent it. I used 5 rubber bands that I attached to the top of Oscar's head and then looped around the hook close to my finger. So when I press down on the hook with my pointer finger the eyebrows go up and then back down due to the rubber bands. I just used some excess green fun, cut it, glued it, and then used brown spray paint, for the single eyebrow. I put a small amount of hot glue in the center of the brow to hold it.
Then I started to cut and glue the green fur to the head.
I cut the black cloth to fit the mouth and cut out a tongue shape from the red cloth and glued that to the black cloth.
Step 3: The Arms
Step 4: The Can
I then cut open the back of the coveralls from almost down to the crotch up to the collar. I attached the zipper with more hot glue.
Step 5: Oscar's Hands and Body
I had to have assistance when gluing the head to the body. Someone held the head while I glued (I think i suffered my 8th or 9th burns during this process).
I then added that pipe insulation to protect you from bein' cut by the can.
