Help me! Please???
Oy, why can't he choose stuff that a) resembles *something* in rtw b) anybody else will recognize and c) won't take me 8 weeks to make?
This is for an 11 year old, who went as Link from Zelda last year and was puzzled about how the only people who recognized him were 20 year old guys...
I will say, though, that my 50 year old neighbor (lady) down the street recognized him too--she has increased in coolness in his eyes...
So the cape I can manage, we're going to use batting for muscles, and I know I can find chain-mail like fabric and liquid lame, but I haven't seen a forward view of this (and contrary to his suggestion, I am not about to play the video game for 5 hours to find it...)
Ideas? I have many patterns for costumes for kids I can plunder for basic structure
