I had some extra time tonight, so I made my Halloween costume (I'm going to be the Bad Robot mascot). Observe:
So, seriously, step 1 is cut a hole in the box:
Iz just mai size!
Modifying the form: the bad robot has a little wedge nose, and as hard as I looked, I couldn't find anything this shape. I cut and bent cardboard into a wedge and duct taped it in place, then paper mached over it to make a solid shape.
Paper mache!! Strips of newspaper dipped into the mush (2 parts Elmer's glue, 1 part hot water) and laid to dry on the form.
Other details: cutting ping pong balls in half for the eyes and duct taping magnetic 'bolts' to my shirt.
Finally, assembly! Super glue for the magnet 'bolts', duct tape for the pipe cleaner spring.
And a little sharpie for edge effects.
Eh? Ehh? I have silver pipecleaner in bands around my neck as well, and then a solid skirt and heels. Use your imagination, and...
BAD WOBOT! 8D
