I am planning to go to FWA in february and so I have a suit I want to make.
The issue is that it is from a cartoon (anime) character, so the head is large, somewhere between round and oval, and very cartoony, with little change in shape.
I have looked at links and memories here, and I don't see any help with trying to make an oval/round shaped head with little in the way of cheeks or muzzle. I want to make it out of plastic mesh but I am very worried about how to keep the shape. I was hoping to use little to no foam, so it is nice an breathable. can you put fur over bare mesh? This will be short pile black and white fur that I will be using.
Here is a picture of my design.
Sorry about the crappiness, I just whipped it up using a mouse and Photoshop. I don't have a fancy tablet. :)
Yes, it is a panda, but it won't be a super realistic panda, it is a cartoon character, so the head is going to have to be oversized. that is another thing that worries me on how to do it. I can make a plastic mesh head that fits close, but I am not sure how to make it round and oversize and not make it look all wonky.
So can you guys help me out?
Thanks in advance.
