It ain't pretty, but it's effective. Building up foam layers now to enhance the stabilisation. Won't be long now before adding toes and duct taping the bejesus out of the entire thing.

And then there's the hair. This will be applied with clear silicone along the duct tape and then pushing hair straight into it. Don't need to latch hook fabric and then stick (as I was planning to do) - just going to rough it up a bit and slap it on.

As long as it's hairy and flairy darlings...

Update:

Bottom of foot lined with non-slip matting, toes put where I'd like them to eventually sit - stuffed with wadding.

Next step - filling in the gaps and duct taping.

Trimming the foot and adding the modified toes this weekend.





Should be able to add neutral cure silicone and hair to the duct taped boots during the week.

Will add pics when they are to hand.

Dont Listen to Fyr Sarah, it isnt blue milk - how absurd. Its a real delicacy.

Its extracted by hand. Squeezed from the pituitary gland of Wampas and shipped from Hoth on ice. Expensive but worth it to go top shelf. I will look forward to our first glass in December - my shout Laughing Laughing Laughing


As promised... Our very own pilots drinking blue milk at the blue milk bar. Thanks to Darthbarry, Red9 and Chewie, of course! Wink

Feet done - just need a trim.




The mesh will be delivered to me next week then off to a seamstress to whip it up. Then the fun will begin. Mask should be done by February 2014. Still on track for Supanova 2014.

Sez.
