Hey Everyone. My friend and I are trying to create a lolita dress that has a wind-up key attached to the back. We want this dress to look like a moving doll, so it would be awesome if the key could turn. Right now, we're creating the wire frame for the key, and are thinking about paper macheing it.
Do any of you have any experience creating props that move? We're also curious what would be the best way to make the key. And how to attach the key to our model without the harness being seen (We're thinking of doing a cascade to hide the slit in the dress right now). Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated!
Here is our reference picture, from Imogen Heap's "Say Goodnight and Go" video. :]
