I will definitely use the dremel for the smoothing and shaping next time, but for my first DIY costume I think it turned out decent, was certainly a fun process and I learned a lot! ?
Awesome I can't wait to see the whole thing.
I glued the foam caps to the cape and put the Velcro on under that.
Did you used Velcro to attach the cape to both the suit and the foam caps?
so I bought some black caulk for the cracks it allows for the flex in those places but holds the mask together... kind of makes for a battle scar appearance :P took a few coats of caulking and smoothing it out.
Hiccup Costume (HTTYD 2)
Signet Ring From Nut
I didn't. The PlastiDip kept it together pretty will. The tip of the ear chipped when I was walking down stairs, but it was an easy fix.
almost done making it... Need to figure out the neck piece. Just for note, seal the plaster mask before adding clay to it as the moisture absorbs into the plaster making it soft and very difficult to work with :P
did you have any problems with the mask cracking in places? If so what did you do to counter this?
I used the same templates, downloaded the adobe illustrator trial version and printed all the designs before it expired.
once it is all said and done I'll get a photo of the suit on and wonderwoman by my side :)Did you use clay for the entire mask? Or just the features and sanded the rest? Also how did you attach the elastic to the bracers? Any tips for designing the neck piece?
I did the entire mask with clay so it could be smooth. I hot glued the elastic for the bracers.
Its looking really good. on the neck piece I wrapped paper around my neck to get a general pattern. Then I cut out the foam and made adjustments. I used a demel to do detail shaping.
Mechanical Monster Hands
I think i bought the wrong clay. It dries then cracks & crumbles. Will the plaster of paris molding clay work? Idk what DAP you are referring to?
Ball Point Pen Art
Quick question- does anyone have a video on how to make one? I want to make one but have no idea how to. Any help is appreciated.
Cool costume. I'd love to see more of a step by step on each of the items.
I used Adobe illustrator to make the templates. if I were you, I would print them out and see how they fit and then adjust for size. You could also do your measurements and then adjust on illustrator first. I wish I had made the rib portion bigger, so you could adjust that. I'd love to see what you come up with.
People who used these instructions, did you guys use the same templates?How did you resize? Free-hand? Adobe illustrator?I'm pretty excited about starting this!
7' Monster Costume
Great job. This is a cool idea.
Thanks! It was pretty fun. I'd love to see what you come up with.
Oh wow! You are so talented! This is a great instructable and totally inspiring! I've seen some cool zombie gnomes I wanted for my yard,but they were super expensive. This seems like the perfect project to tackle.
