He’s a wire armature base, foam body, with fleece and faux fur. His head, hands, and feet were all hand sculpted and painted with a matte finish. The armor is all real leather and fully removable. 11 ½ in tall and 7 in across at the shoulders.
I plan on getting an Etsy listing up for him and would like to ask about $200 USD for him (considering the materials that went into him but am still looking for feedback if that price seems reasonable and all)
In any case spreading this around so people can see would be appreciated and if you are interested in him you can message me!
I basically haven’t been on tumblr in a year/ year and a half….so inactive no stuff yada yada. BUT. but. On my hiatus I did try my best to take pictures of projects that i worked on over the year (YAYYYY)
This was my Halloween costume for 2016, the first picture is actually me and my coworker(she’s Lucy and will probably be lucy this year too xD I love her so much) at kmart taking pictures since there were no customers. At all. We didn’t even give out much candy… and only three of us dressed (BOO)
Anyhow I wanted to show the process as to how I made the Shy guy mask, it’s still ridiculously amateurish with all the lumps. BUT. You always have to keep moving forward, and maybe i’ll look back this and be like EW, but right now I’m not ew about it so i’m posting it.
The materials I used for the project: Balloons, Paper Mache(newspaper/flour/water), A hot glue gun, some plastic mesh, homemade paper clay (I used a tutorial on youtube, she was a great sculptor), some brown fabric, white acrylic paint, and sandpaper(because I was a dummy and didn’t roll out the clay first…roll out the clay and make it as flat as possible. Makes your life easier.)
What I could’ve done differently: For the most part, it was a really successful mask. However, I would have cut it an inch or two further. It scraped my chin a bit. Also rolling out the paper clay, as well as looking into ways to create a better harness so that I don’t have to worry about it falling off. Lastly, lining the inside, just to make it look nicer.
THE BEST PART? Selfies. Dramatic Selfies.
Constant doodles I tend to put on my Instagram bitt3rsw33t, but I’m going to try to keep bigger projects and comic on here ^^
This year, I plan on making a fun spider costume. I’m going to TRY to make 6 doll arms, and I’m definetly going to be looking for materials now. I MEAN WE’RE ONLY A SUMMER AWAY FROM HALLOOWEEEEENNNNNN
In the mean time I’m going to be uploading what I worked on over the past year, I have a few other projects, and maybe I’ll find time for some fanart as well ^o^
