I'm so insanely proud of how he turned out.
I put a lot of thought into the details all over him. Photos with explanations because I know you guys will appreciate them.
I'm so proud of how his face turned out. His nose is knitted, his eyes and brows are printed out from a photo of Tim Curry, which I then colored over with Prismacolors and sealed. His lips are puffy paint. His eyelashes I'm particularly proud of. I tried so many different materials - ribbon, fabric, netting - before realizing that corduroy has those strings that fray out when you sew it. So I just removed about 10 of those strands and was left with only the threads going in the other direction, which I cut off and glued to his face. They turned out great!
His shoes are made Model Magic, which I wrapped around some coffee stirrers to get the heel and then molded to his foot. When they were dry I sprayed them with spray glue and covered them in black glitter.
The pins and patches are all the original ones from his jacket in the movie. Thanks to this awesome site (http://www.moviejackets.com/frank.php
) I was able print out the pins very very teeny on paper which I sealed with packing tape, and the patches are printed onto fabric.
His jacket has a working separate zipper and he has a sparkly corset underneath.
His tattoo has been embroidered on.
