Costume description: While we didn\'t keep an accurate count of how long we spent on this costume, Emmy and I spent well over 100 hours on it.
was responsible for the patterning, heat forming, and base foam work when putting the armor together. She patterned each piece by hand, created the piece out of foam, and attached it all together to get it as form fitting as possible on me. She also did the wiring for the LED\'s in the backpack.
was responsible for all of the detailing on the costume. This includes all dremel work, sealing the foam, craft foam details, painting, weathering, harnessing, etc.
We both have such different skill sets that this really was an ideal project for us to not only learn, but also utilize those skills to produce something above and beyond what we could have done individually. I\'m forever grateful to Emmy for being willing to help me tackle such a large project, and it wouldn\'t have been half as good as it is without her assistance.
My apologies for being so absent! October has not only been super busy for me work wise, but I have also been VERY sick with the Flu and Pneumonia
BUT here is something cool! At Dragon*con I got to do something interesting, a 360 shoot! You can see the costume in its entirety and zoom in, so that is really cool! Sadly I had already took out my white out contacts since this was later in the day and I was super exhausted. Thats also why I look slightly derpy haha. But enjoy! Hopefully I will do a cool shoot for her soon
Nestly: It has been a LOOOOOONG time since I made a Flash, and a clickable flash at that! (Yes, it's clickable! Click on Skippy to see what he does!)
This was a test run for me. I bought a package of new Adobe programs about a year ago, (including Photoshop and Flash) But I absolutely detest the way the new Flash runs. I finally dug up my old copy of Flash MX 2004 and after an hour or so with Adobe tech support, got it running on my new computer. So I thought I'd go back to how I used to animate and give it a shot. The images themselves were done on SAI. and imported to Flash. Took approximately 2 hours. (Only because I completely forgot how action scripts work! Augh!)
Enjoy the derpy Mudkip. 8) (Skippy is totally a Marshtomp now anyways)
