The Grand Finale! The Nitty-Gritty Of Costume Making!

Well hello crafters!

Today I have some news for you! This is the very last blog post that I will be graded on! What does that mean for this blog? Well, nothing! I will still be posting all my crafts and loving every minute of it, it just means I will no longer receive a grade for my posts! :) Does this mean the quality will go down? NO! You will still receive the same grammar, the same spelling, and the same punctuation that you have seen in all my other posts! So, I just wanted to share that news with you all!

Now, today as a grand finale for this class I am going to show you a costume that I have been working on for quite a while! This costume is about 90% completed, but I wanted to show you the nitty-gritty of it when it was just foam and glue. So, without further ado I present to you "Buckeye the African Grey" costume! (P.S. If you attend Ohayocon look for me! I'll be there! ;) )

      This is the front view of the costume head. That's not the actual eye that is going to be there. It's a place holder so I know where the eyes are!

                                This is the side view of the head. I can see a smile under all that duct tape! :D

This is the back view of the costume head. Yes, it's covered in duct tape. This is to make a pattern so I can cover the head with cloth, faux fur, etc.


                                       This is the bird's eye view of the costume head. (Ha, I made a joke!)

    This is the front view of the costume head, don't mind the paper and the shoe in the background. ;)

This is a side view of the costume head. There's that smile again! :D


This is the back of the costume head. I think it looks quite unattractive from the back. ;P

Here's the last shot of the costume head. That's duct tape on the black part of the neck.

Here's just one shot of the feet, they look so awesome now that they are covered in fleece and have big claws! :D Maybe I will give you a shot of the completed feet, if I feel generous! ;)

Well crafters that's the nitty-gritty. It looks so ugly in the beginning, but the results look amazing! That's information for another post though, but maybe it will keep you wanting more! ;) So crafters this is the end of my blogging class, but it's not the end of Let's Get Down And Crafty! I hope that you will keep coming back for more crafts and I hope that you yourself will Get Down And Crafty! Thanks for reading crafters and I wish everyone the best of luck in their new classes!

May your life be crafty,
