Blue Gnoll

Forgive me if this is in the wrong place

I know everyone hates memes, but i'm excited over making my very 1st one.
I'm linking it here because it is about the Gnolls. Those who know me know i'm a hyena nut, and that I have a group of hyena men (Gnolls) that I and my friends dress up as in the UK. (I warn you, they are a bit mean). ;op

So why am I posting it here?
All of my group have their own suit characters, and each final answer on the meme comes with a pic of the person who plays the character dressed up in the suit.

If you are interested, the link is HERE

And i'm interested to know which of the Gnolls you are most like. ;o)
...and if you like the costumes - masks and african/naval/period stuff.

(Note: I also cross posted this to my own journal, and my gnollish_clan journal)

Love, peace and chicken grease!
Otter!

oooooo

*bounces* YAY! hehe... sorry... tired but hyper, dangerous combination... but anyway.. Hi, I'm Fuzzy, i'm a Colorado fur with a mission, taht mission is to track down someone who could build the custom suit i'm thinking of. Now's the part where you all start asking "what kind?" right?... well... I don't know how many are familiar with the movie, but in Tank Girl, there are creatures called Rippers (humans (and 1 dog) fused with Kangaroo DNA, really intresting they are). When they fight, they wear really cool looking costumes to shield them and all that cool stuff... What i'm looking to try to do is find someone that i could commision to make me one of the costumes they wear. BUT! there is a catch, it must be motorcycle friendly, this being anything from just a scooter to a street bike and everything inbetween. i'm trying to get ahold of a DVD version of the movie, or even a VHS and an S-Video cable so that i can try to get screenshots, cause i have not found any pictures of them online strangely enough, for those that either dunno wtf i'm talking about, or just need a reference... well... that's all... for now... wheeeee

New jaw mechanism.

After trying to figure out the moving jaw and not getting any further with it (I have no idea why, since all you people have been posting so many helpful tips, but no matter what I did it just refused to work!) I decided to try a slightly different approach by using elastic straps around the head (similar to Jax's balaclava heads, but with mesh) that go inside the main framework. The jaw was originally going to be a completely separate piece from the rest, but I wound up keeping the hinges. I also hot glued the top elastic loop to the top of the head, because it kept slipping around and it made it a lot easier to put the thing on. I can't say I've ever seen anything exactly like this before (I don't claim to have invented it, though) but it works quite nicely and it's very sensitive to my jaw movements when I speak. The only real complaint is that the jaw doesn't open QUITE as wide as I wanted, but I'm satisfied apart from that and the main thing is that it works. I'm not sure whether or not I'll use this method on any masks I'd like to sell, though.
