Just a Small Costume Build

Living in my heads means I get to have assorted delusions of grandeur and over estimate my abilities. For example I currently have 3 variants of a Batman Scarecrow mask in the works as the images in my head collide with my actual skill levels at the moment. Not to mention the various paper mock ups of Clone Trooper armour I have scattered around the house as I try and find the correct fit with the patterns I’m using. 

I have experimented with paper, fibreglass, resin and foam to build costume components and each time I make something I learn new tricks from a wide range of professionals on YouTube and Facebook. 

With all that in mind I’ve set myself a personal challenge. To finish off a complete costume by the start of April. Yeah I know I’ve said things like that before but as a push to get out of my rut I am focusing on a costume that can easily be modified due to its organic origins. No I’m not doing a cellophane monster from the early Dr Who episodes. 

I’ve always loved this character and after seeing some amazing costumes it sparked an urge to make one.

Probably a bit ambitious but I figure why not give it a shot. This will also give me more incentive to document my builds so I can learn from mistakes I make. Fingers crossed everyone 😬
