Lucario by ScratchKitty Lucario by ScratchKitty
Finished (kinda) for Tekkoshocon! He actually still needs the fluff spikes around his neck, and he will get those in time for Otakon.

I didn't take this photo, it's one we bought from the photo booth at Tekko.

Costume made by me.

Great costume. What materials did you use for the head piece?

Thanks! The short version: Upholstery foam, faux fur, hotglue, sealed buckram (for the eyes) and lots of hand sewing.

interesting. I saw that it also has a moving jaw. Can i use plaster gauze to make it and what is the best material to articulate the jaw?

Plaster gauze will probably not work very well, just judging from my own experience from using it. This mask's lower jaw is actually just foam and uses elastic to hold it on and articulate with the costumers own jaw.

Doesn't that sound uncomfortable?

:iconscratchkitty:
ScratchKitty Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No? He says it's really comfortable, and it's the done the same on my Umbreon, which I think it very comfortable. I suppose it would be uncomfortable if the elastic was too tight, but that would be an err on the maker's part.

So it's like two pieces of the mask separated. Interesting

how long did it take you to make it? and how much did it cost for the materials?
Reply
:iconscratchkitty:
ScratchKitty Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
When all is said and done materials were probably between $400 and $500. It took about a month to complete.

For me it wasn't super difficult, but I have been sewing for years. For someone without that skillset, it could prove to be more difficult.

Good luck! Sewing fur can be both easier and more difficult than normal sewing. Easier because fur is pretty forgiving as far as lumpy or crooked seams go. (and the longer it is the more it will generally hide) But it's also harder because most fur does not have a whole lot of stretch to it, so an ill-fitting suit can be really uncomfortable!

My suggestion to try it out would be to start with paw gloves. They're pretty easy and can give you a better idea about how to handle the fur.

Well as much as I'd love to just give links, you really need to search around. Foam I bought locally. The fur I got from CR's Crafts ( [link] ). Other things I got here and there as I was able to find them.

i never thought of it that. thanks! so i should make a partial-suit first?

ScratchKitty Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I would say just start small. The head is the hardest part really moreso for carving and shaping. The fur isn't too difficult to pick up with a little practice, but shaping heads is something that takes a lot of trial and error, which means a LOT of practice. And don't be discouraged if your first doesn't come out spectacular. It's all part of the learning process :)

I've been to AnimeNEXT once, and I didn't really like how people conducted themselves there.. so we flipped and do Otakon now instead. Also Tekkoshocon, because it's practically in my backyard. haha.

Yeah Philly is too far for me to add to my list. I'm doing(well one is done) 4 cons this year. Two I am traveling for (Otakon and Dragon*Con), and two are here in Pittsburgh (Tekkoshocon and Anthrocon). Until I start making some money, traveling for two cons is pretty much my limit. haha :)

Though I do hope to go back to AnimeNEXT someday and hope for a better experience from it. lol

Quick question: what are the hand-spikes made of? :3
Reply
:iconscratchkitty:
ScratchKitty Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
They're actually carved foam covered with muslin, then coated with plasti dip.

:iconplaid-pichu:
Plaid-pichu Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010  Professional General Artist
Really? Interesting, I might try that! :D Thanks so much!
Also, after the spikes are coated in Muslin and plasti dip, does the foam become hard or does it retain a foamy structure?
Reply
:iconscratchkitty:
ScratchKitty Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a bit stiffer, but it can still squish a bit. the smoother you can get the muslin to lay, the less plastidip you need.. I layered it on till the lines from the muslin disappeared. Haha.

:iconplaid-pichu:
Plaid-pichu Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Professional General Artist
Really? I've never used either before, what do you mean by layering? so that it doesn't look like cloth anymore on the finished product? Or is Muslin not that clothy
Reply
:iconscratchkitty:
ScratchKitty Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Muslin is a thin cloth. The only reason it's in there is to keep the plasti dip from just soaking into the foam. The plasti dip will still soak into the muslin and foam a little, so you have to use a few layers to make it smooth. Plasti dip is a rubbery-plastic substance that is commonly used to coat the grip on tools. You can find it in both a dip and a spray. For Lucario here, I used a black dip (I couldn't find it in white locally, and didn't have time to order it) and then once it was smooth, I used white (plasti dip) spray to coat it.

Yep - I took it from the Lucario/Buizel fight. It actually glows blue (you can't see it here very well). Plus it looks great at raves! ^_^

I'm getting an illuminated juggling ball for an Aura Sphere pose. I'll have it in time for AC and Otakon. =3
