About this Costume
Construction Details:
Foam-based mascot costume worn around the body. All foam is covered by spandex to make it appear very smooth. The legs are made with yellow outdoor vinyl, sewn in sections with inner bias tape seams to accomodate wire loops for shape. It's all sectional, connecting via velcro and large hook clips at the head, arms, upper and lower torso, and legs. Vision is thru the net mouth and there's a built-in ventilation fan that exits at the back for air circulation. THAT wiring was done with much assistance from Rob Lantz and my father. I don't do wiring...
Personal Thoughts:
The costume was made for fun and then repaired/adjusted for size so a friend could wear it for our Katsucon 8 Go Nagai skit. It's been borrowed many times for fun, and worn in a few skits that year at various cons.
