benders adventure continue..
got bender out for the rose city comicon (2013) & was able to get him signed by john dimaggio!!
(the voice of bender)
(for some reason.. looks like the photos are not loading..? hope they do!)
so, I guess we made it on tv.. in the first episode of heroes of cosplay on the syfy network!! (have not got to watch it, but that's what I hear..) could not have built this costume without all the inspiration from this site!!
Gumby at ECCC 2013
some photos of Gumby and the Blockheads at the Seattle Comicon 2013!
we had lots of fun & always a new learning lesson..!!
*also, if you have checked out this post & posted, i thank you very much!!
if you have checked it out at all.. also thank you!
(i find that...
i must say..
i very much wanted to get a Pokey done for this con but did not leave myself enough time..
so, there is one in the works..!!
(hope to post photos as it moves along.. also think this was an early photo & may have scaled it up even more than this..?)
used the same type of cotton martial as gumby on the blockheads..
(setting em set up.. put a pad in the back that helps with how they sit on a persons head.. & you can see out of there eyes.)
such a blockhead..
*along with the Gumby costume i decided to make the Blockheads..
(these are the trouble makers from the show.. sort of props to gumby but also costumes them selves..ish)
**not sure that they need to be there own thread.. so..
Gumby at his first Comicon!! (ECCC 2013)
the ventilation system worked great! (better than my bender costume..) i think it was received well, the photos look pretty good, got lots of comments of childhood memories, smiles & good times!!
* thanks for the comments!
before the con i was able to sew up a bag for transporting the costume..
(it helped with loading it up, getting it in and around & most people didnt know what it was..)
