Howdy all,
My daughter is turning 3 this December and we thought shed be old enough to decide her own Halloween costume. Then my wife and I would match her. After numerous , and I mean NUMEROUS changes, Sesame street was the theme. I did my research, and saved a million pictures on Big Bird. Built the head, worked out the eye blinks etc...Then she changed her mind. We watched Monsters Inc and she wanted to be "Mikey".
GREAT!!!!!
I started right away( AFTER DRILLING HER FOR THREE DAYS TO CONFIRM ) and got my research going. after drawing and drawing I was ready. I built the armature out of solid coil stock I bought from the Depot in the fence aisle. IMG_0872.JPG

I made the face from a piece of foam one of the truck drivers had on their truck while dropping off supplies at work. IMG_0855.JPG and the eyes are an Xmas coca cola bottle ornament.
Then I started skinning it with cardboard IMG_0880.JPG IMG_0919.JPG
After completing that I started calling around for fur. No one local could help but it turned out one of the salesman's sons is a puppeteer and pointing me in the right direction. IMG_0954.JPG IMG_0957.JPG

This is as far as Ive gotten, and yesterday my daughter told me shes going to be Tinkerbell....so much for themes.
more to come,








Christopher

this thread is like a porn book with no pictures. can someone post a tutorial on how to embed photo's. I get tired of opening new pages for every picture.

oh dont use photobucket they will cap your bandwidth use google photo.

how do I post pics that show up right away, not just links?
Christopher

After much trial and error over the last few days, I've found they work for me when I upload from my computer as png files, but make sure they're under 3.5mb.

Your build looks absolutely amazing. I remember as a kid changing my mind every two days leading to Halloween too. But your daughter will still love your costume!

(You can go back and edit your first post to use small PNG files instead. Everyone should see them!)1

Looks fantastic! Great start, I'm really looking forward to seeing this one finished. :)

As for pictures I just use the image uploader that the RPF has. Uploading files directly from my computer.

First of all, really great work! This is shaping up to be very very impressive.

I think somethings slightly wrong with the face...any thoughts?

Lack of eyebrows and properly protruding lips, mostly, needs fully sized horns. Sully also has much larger eyes, placed closer together so that the corneas nearly meet in the middle.
