About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I bought a base helmet (which was originally white with pink flowers) and basically spray painted the entire thing after I made the 'cat ears' out of paperclay and cardboard. I then used blue and black acrylic paint for the rest of the markings on the helmet. The helmet visor wasn't tinted originally (it was completely clear when I first bought the helmet), so I ended up buying dark sheets of what is used to add tint to a car's windows and layered them inside of the helmet. They attach to the helmet visor through static cling, so I can always re-attach them (although it's harder now that the helmet is finished). There are some changes I've made to the helmet (maybe even minor changes), but other than that it's pretty much complete.
As for the suit, I made it completely out of a black spandex-blend since I wasn't able to purchase pleather or anything of the sort in due time. Not only that, but I (as of right now) do not have enough experience with such hard leather-like materials that I went with something that I felt would work and would be comfortable enough to wear.
The boots were bought, but were used since I didn't have another pair that was flat and not heeled. The only thing I don't like about the boots is that they have an odd look to it in pictures since they have a velvet-like top layer.
