Another couple of things that have been chewing at me lately...
Latex. Fun stuff to play with, cast with and goop all over things. But -sheet- latex is what I'm talking about here - the stuff that's usually incredibly expensive. Now, once I get hold of some, does anyone here have any experience working with it? I know it can be sewn and I'm not worried about that, but I'm looking for someone who's had some experience with glued seams and perhaps making inflatable suit parts. If anyone's had even a small amount of success I'd love to talk out a few ideas!
The purple mammoth suit that people voted on and said I should do is almost complete! All that needs doing is the head furring and the toenails. Now... I'm torn on whether to keep it as a personal suit or sell it. It fits me nicely but could -easily- fit someone taller and with longer arms, and as I'm quite large around the middle it'd obviously fit anyone with a decent tummy, or could be padded for someone slim.
The thing is, I still don't have a personal suit to wear around. Not even a partial. So, keep it, or sell it to get materials for my upcoming personal suit? Do you think anyone'd actually buy a purple mammoth, even if it really cute?
Working on a small bat/dragon wing tutorial to be posted here soon :)
