Tamara and I are attending the Highlights illustrator's party this coming weekend and there is a costume party. I decided a while ago that i was going to be Barf.
it would have been pretty simple for Tam to grab an old white dress and go as Princess Vespa, but i was worried she'd run off with Lonestar if he showed up. Plus who likes easy?
the party is saturday so today at 6:00pm i started to hack together a Dot Matrix costume.
I started by carving up some foam to rough out the forms.
I was going for general likeness, not really enough time for exact copies.
then i vacuum formed some styrene sheet over the positives to make the actual costume parts.
We cut up some flat sheet and riveted the edges together to get the skirt started and this is where we ended up at 11 pm.
