Hey guys! You never know what will happen when you post something on crafster. A few months ago I posted a picture of the sock monkey Steve (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=105491.0
) that I created for the sock monkey challenge. Someone saw it online here, and contacted me to make costumes for his music video which was called "Tigers" for a band called "Division Day" and was to star tiger zombies!! I didn't have much time, so I enlisted the help of my friend tesstessi, and we started working! I took care of heads, which was quite an undertaking. It's a little bit complicated, lets just say the head involves punch bowls, spray foam, and lots and lots of tape, hot glue and stuffing. I free handed the heads, draping and sewing as I went along.
After the main part of the head and the framework was constructed, I put on the details. Black burlap patches to make the stripes, red fabric for the gashes, black yarn for the stitching, broom bristles for the whiskers, black vinyl for the nose, white for the teeth, and buttons and yarn to make the disembodied eyes.
All in all, it took about 1 week of solid work and a few all nighters (and one day spent at comic con) to get these 4 suckers done. We went up for the shoot so we could trouble shoot the costumes and be there in case of disaster. Despite being heavy and a bit unweildy, the heads didn't need to be edited other than a nip and a tuck here and there to make sure people necks weren't exposed. I don't envy the person inside the costume, the burlap is scratchy, and it's hard to see/breathe inside those heads!
And now the the pictures:
