(no subject)

Just wanted to let ya'll know that I got the moving jaw to move finally! It doesn't move well so i'm probably going to exchange the rubber bands for elastic at some point. But I did it by connecting a rubber band to 2 rubber bands on the lower jaw and 1 brad on the mesh piece that goes on my chin. I did that on both sides and it moves kinda well. It's also foamed now except for part of the ears that I still have to finish. I'll have pictures soon!

Peircings????

What can I use to make the peircings for Spooky? On her left ear she has a Tragus, normal Lobe, and Upper Cartilage. On her Right ear she has 2 normal lobe, and an Industrial near the tip of the ear. Finally, a right eyebrow peircing. Any suggestions, tips, hints, clues as to what I van use?? The Industrial is a Barbell going from one side of the ear to the other. The rest of the earrings on the ears are Studs and the Eyebrow is a Curved barbell.

I just made Kazzo Aussie's handpaws!

they are elbow length and medium white teddy bear from crcrafts. They will attach to the grey bodysuit sleeves with velcro later. i am very proud! i used growly's way of sewing without cutting the paw out of the fur yet. works wonders and i reccomend that to anyone! now i want to add stuffed leather pawpads, how would i go about doing that? they are small circles on the fingers and a dog like pad in the palm. either black or the brown/tan that matches some fur on the head/tail. and should i make the tail stub out of foam and the fur then attach to body or just suff it?

thanks!

Red XIII Head Update

I've (more or less) finished the furring of Red. I decided to use my own hair for him and took some pics to see what it looks like.

This is probably the only time on life I have wish for my hair on top to be longer :D I styles it a bit with gel, but I may put styling wax in it when I actually use him, for spikier hair.

I am going to buy some hair extensions to give him some long bangs and to cover up the white elastic visible in the back. Unfortunately, I cannot remove the elastic totally, or the head will fall off :P

The last pic is to show the slit in the back for my hair to hang out. The neck velcro is open in the pic..

I appreciate any comments on the look and any improvements you may have on this method.
