Hey, I have a question that you can either ignore completely or anwser- do you have any good refrence pictures of Kaoru's outfit of this? I'm contemplating doing it... but alas, the pictures illude my grasp. >.<
gah...there isn't an edit comment anymore. O_o Well, nevermind the typos.
What I was going to add is that on some close-ups you'll see some stuff that -isn't- supposed to be there - like feathers I never used on GAUZE and Playstation controller cords and a little Millenium Falcon (because Kao collects Star Wars stuff XD)
Also...if I was to have made this costume today, I would have used the new technique I'm using on Kaoru's Kisou helmet (and Nightmare's arm) instead because it's a lot lighter that way. ^_- Altho FILTH isn't that heavy compared to some of my other headpieces. O_o;
Oh, this is like the only photo where I didn't add a huge caption explination ^_^;
Yeah...it's just a toy helmet covered with tons of layers of junk...trash bags, Celluclay, electrical wire, heatshrink, foam rods, plastic pipets, fishtank tubing, those nets wigs come in, filter mesh, different tapes, lots and lots of different kinds of paint including glo-in-the-dark stuff. I even have bits of Minako's Toshiya headpiece too for no good reason. XD
There really was no pre-thought. I just started with that base helmet and started wiring and hotgluing junk on, everything just kinda connects to each other naturally and it gets more stable the more things are latched together...with this kind of thing, there can never be too much.
Umm... *shuffels feet* Can I ask you how you made the head alien thing? I hate not being able to figure it out on my own...But I'm stumped and could use some adivce...And I really wanna make this outfit look good. So if you could, give me some tips advice or something? *clings* Thanks for even reading my post. ANd it's ok if you don't want to tell me. But I hope you do o.o
Thanks again so much.
thank you ^_^ I actually do try to stand like he does, so it's great that it was noticed. ^o^
