Well, I figured after 2 consecutive years of Star Wars costumes (Stormtrooper and Biker Scout) I'd be more original .. but yet .. I had no idea what to do. A buddy from work who works on the side for Sideshow as a sculptor showed me the new '09-'10 catalog and I stumbled upon the 12" Sam which I had no idea what it was ..
After some sniffing around the net, I read about the movie .. then did a little search here but didn't find much in term of do it yourself .. so I figured, hey, might as well show my WIP here! Looked for refs yesterday .. and then today, I was off to tissue stores ...
So there you go .. I plan on checking the movie soon .. but it the meantime, here's where I am after a day of shopping to get the material...
Orange/rust polar tissue
Pajama pattern for adult x-large
Tissue for head (no idea how it's called in english)
2 big buttons
Rope for hand stitching on head
Big rope for neck
My WIP will be here...
Here's a compilation of the best refs I found on the net .. I wish I would know how the back is done...
