Ok, so being the obsessed How to Train Your Dragon fan that I am, I have decided to make a deadly Nadder costume.
Here is the dragon in question, in case for some reason you haven't seen the film.
I have the majority of the costume figured out, just one thing has me stumped.
To create a realistic leg I am working foam around a pair of old comfy trainers. The problem is that the foam around the bottom of the trainer could get wrecked if it rains the weekend of the event that this costume is for. I was going to get an outside rubber 'welcome' mat, cut it the shape of the bottom of the feet and glue it using e-6000, but I don't know what would be able to cut through it - or if thick faux leather would suffice instead.
Here is the kind of mat I was thinking of using http://www.wilkinsonplus.com/Floor-Mats/Wilko-Mat-Coir-40cmx60cm/invt/0267049?htxt=136oBCvHNH7SX8O%2BwHFbz9FgoqzFN%2F8FCFNRGTUGAbU3pQeJr8%2BHpE%2FAuabpZiMSmtYOZS6CsAB8%0AkI2PHkwfVA%3D%3D
Any help you guys could give would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance x
