This whole thing started out as a joke in shoutbox. But after some discussion, Neil (zimbobbio) and I actually committed to this project almost 2 months before AM2 made the SCANDAL announcement official. This is a brief photo log of how we did it.
We used these tutorials to help get us started, but after a certain point it was mostly improvisation:
Doing this with just a knife is really hard.
Gluing the pieces together.
Tucked the edges of the black fabric into the grooves to give the illusion that the face is popping out of the skull.
Foam started to turn yellow from leaving it out in the sun, so I glued some white polyester on before gluing the plush fabric on. It was also an attempt to hide the imperfections from my knife work.
Plush applied to top half only.
Not many pictures here, because we did a lot of the work literally less than 24 hours before Day 0.
Neil used sandpaper and got a much smoother shape.
Sewing the seams together.
Everything but whiskers.
Customized autograph! And the girls patted my head as I went down the line lol.
disasterroom immediately before, during, and after AM2.
My room a few days after AM2 (finally).
