in a viewable size. I *did* mention I'm mother to three girls aged (now) 11, 10 and 8 years?
And besides having a full bed to my own I like doing digital doodles. Cheesy

Whow, so "few" parts and nevertheless so much variety! My favorite is Kaa, the way (s)he looks, great!
I think this rocks!

I don't have advice on printing for you, but I want to tell you how great you did his face. I KNOW it has always the same expression for it is painted, but I could swear his looks changes in every picture! Great!

Hey, great to meet a fellow airbrusher!
I doubt you could use even createx on dark colors like red without a base of white. For texture... I've never tried it on shoes, so I take your word.
What does it mean, when you're "on location"? Obviously not at home, sure, so you paint on a mobile booth or something? (Curious? MEEE??? Aw, nooooo...)
Did you too notice that even without heat setting the textile medium in createx colors gave them a much longer life?

GREAT! I love it!
And besides, I learned a little about toy cars - I NEVER gave a thought about how to get the likeness of the drivers into them. Cheesy

They are great, wonderful colors, lovely motives.

I guess your paints don't crack BECAUSE you use the cheap kind. Few pigments, a lot of "glue" to hold them together and on the fabric, but they don't cover up very well.
Back in my times, I used a special brand of airbrush colors (Createx, I'd say; can't remember the name right now... will have a look later). They've got a textile medium to mix into, got fixed with heat (ironing or, in some cases, I've put it into the oven). The textile medium prevented cracking or washing out. The colors themselves had a lot of pigment in them (remember, airbrush, they were meant to be watered down to fit through the nozzle) so they covered really well. So if you can't get this brand, it may be worth a look in the airbrush compartment.

Thank you.
My two other daughters wanted to participate too, this year. So it seem this year I have to create FOUR costumes out of the blue. Wink

My daughter went to a pokemon tour day last year and happened to tell me two weeks in advance she still needed a costume.
Should I be flattered or bursting in anger? TWO WEEKS! No pattern, no fabric and naturally not the slightest idea who this Raichu may be. Well, the last was fixed by my daughter, telling me over and over it's the last evolved stage of Pikachu.
She went together with a friend of hers being Pikachu - and hey, they won fourth place having about 60 competitors! Seems I did *something* right. Smiley
I'll stop talking now and give you the pics:

Front. She's looking through the mouth - I sewed black tulle in two layers into it. She had quite a good view and could breathe easily this way. Me personally, I hate it when you start breathing your own warm, wet exhalations. Yuck.

Back - I fixed the tail with nylon cord and a safety pin so it could swing but not be stepped upon.


Everybody absolutely LOVED her! Wherever she went, people cuddled her and wanted to take pics.

Absolutely able to compete, isn't it? She could have been a little more stuffed up, but I remember the faces of the actors wearing the original costumes - they were all puffy and sweaty, even on this not-so-warm-day. My daughters belly just holds it form due to wires and reeds - no extra stuffing (and she's a thin little fishy).
Oh, and I made the hands with a slit to get your own fingers out to handle something. For further convenience (especially bathrooms) I made the costume being three parts: trousers, body with crotch closure, head. Everything is stiffened up with wires and/or reeds (like the ones you use for baskets), the legs are stuffed with styrofoam(?) like you find in cheap pillows.

Hope you enjoy,
