This idea came about when I was into indoor rock climbing. There was a costumed event coming up and I thought, "What better expression of my skills than to go as one of the slowest climbers out there!". The finished piece ended up looking pretty much exactly like the sketch.
I love your sloth. I found it when I was trying to find a costume to make for my daughter for Halloween. She wanted to be a sloth and yours was perfect. I have translated it to a version that I can make and have most of it finished. If you are interested in seeing what I have done so far you can check it out on my blog at mamaspark.blogspot.com Thanks for the great idea! I couldn't make your awesome head piece or those claws but it is turing out quite nicely. Again many thanks!
