Evil Friday prop by imjustellingyou Evil Friday prop by imjustellingyou
I made 6 of these little guys for me and my friends' otakon cosplay About 3-4 of them survived. I had pictures of them when they were first made, but I'm not sure where the card is.
I started with smooth-textured, craft Styrofoam. It has a slipper surface, so painting the eye took much longer than expected. I used yellow acrylic paint and cotton balls to give it a thin layer of paint (too much and it wouldn't dry and would come off entirely on your hands). Next, I attempted to paint the iris and pupil. It looked pretty bad, but at least I had a base coat of green to paint over. I let that dry over night before working on detailing.
For the legs, I used thin black craft/jewelry wire. It took a bit of experimenting to figure out how to balance them, but that wasn't to hard. I attached the legs by poking holes into the styrofoam and securing them with tape. Clear, scotch tape so that I could modify or repair them for the next con since this was my first time. My dad suggested I dip the
tips of the wire in paint which was a fantastic idea since my friends and I had these poking into our clothes (or in my case, my wig)
Sorry for the wall of text, but I noticed that the ones I based mine off of didn't explain how they were made.
