I started off my morning finishing up the Darth Maul outfit and realized I needed a Shredder helmet in two weeks. I already had the foam cut and shaped as I needed, but it was still in a rough state. So I sanded it smooth and got it primed with Plasti-dip.
This is the helmet that I learned how to do out of EVA foam at CosAwesome Studio’s foam building class. It will be a lot easier to wear than my first Shredder helmet was! (When I get done, I’ll have to do a side-by-side shot to show the difference and how far I’ve come in constructing things!) This one is turning out to be a lot lighter and smoother than before, and it’s looking great so far!
I also finished the Joker-o-lantern. It already has a few coats of clear coat on it, and it’s all set to go! I plan on filling it full of candy and handing it out of little and big kids alike at Kokomo Con, Saturday, October 24th.
