vincent said that the show was as good as FMA so i had to watch it... and it was awesome! so i went to like another xerxes/undertaker-like character called mephisto pheles this time. bwahhhh.
he has this really cute bat-like umbrella and it seems he likes pink a lot.
and he appeared to be the tallest character =.=
just look at how well he goes together with xerxes. hur hur.
so i've more or less completed his stuff. was actually supposed to do it with laogong at AFA, but i was busy chionging for my pitch and didn't have time to complete it. T_T next event please!
started with the modification of my audrey burne top and joining the tail to it.
painted the buttons on it
and attached thick thread for the swirly collar and cuffs
then mended the bottom so it has the v-shape
now it looks like this
next i made the vest with lining
i quite like how it turned out... maybe i'll wear it out. heh.
and the back
the hat was made using foam. had a previous template from shirogane, so just needed to cut and made sure it fit my head. it's ll kangaroo glued-on, and my handicraft was so bad some parts looked pretty yellowish. oh well.
swirly thing was done with 2 strips stuffed with cotton and twisted together, then glued on.
normal gloves template, just draw the lines around my hand, cut and sew. routine. (but it still looks sucky)
cape is done with 2 colors and in 2 layers cos my white cloth was too little, so i had to cheat... which part did i cheat on, you ask? WELLL... guess!
then added in the ribbon lining. i like this ribbon!
bought pink pants but couldn't bear to paint over it so i bought stockings and drew over it instead. too lazy to draw the whole part so here's what i have only that's enough (since he has shorts and boots to cover the rest anyway)
made the cane using some curtain hanger that is extendable and painted it gold. suppose to build the tip and the ice cream part with clay but the 2 packs of clay i bought was all solidified! there goes my $4 in the bin. ended up using the epoxy i had. well it was much stronger anyway...
and the base of the ice cream is some stuffed cloth. HAHA
that needed LOTS of painting and repainting
to eventually look like this. the green's still a bit dirty though
next is the bat-umbrella. not sure how to convert from bat to umbrella and vice versa, so i just settled for only bat. made the sweets pattern out of felt.
then bought pink cloth to make the bat base. wings had metal wirings to support.
then i stuffed the bat through the rod
wings will be added on separately for easier traveling purposes. so it kinda look like this when i set it up
cute eh? it's lying on top of my CD rack in the living room now. i had to make it face inwards so it wouldn't scare anyone passing by.
also worked a bit on the hp accessory but too lazy to continue for now...
this is the fire ball and the earth ball
he hangs so many weird balls... jeez. this is colorful ball.
