Costume Update 2016 - mostly Rita Repulsa
I got the black fabric attached to the foam head piece and added the wrap around.
I then glued on the red gems and used gold fabric paint to add the accents along the band.
I then added the hanging straps and sewed them in. I added some hook and eyes and wrapped some spare fabric from the dress around the hair. My next big hurtle is the collar and chest piece. The collar changed over the years so I have to pick a style and figure out how to accomplish it.
Zedd's helmet is painted and other than some experiments we're conducting with plastidip, it's finished
Rita's staff has a base coat and needs some accents. The plan is to experiment with gold washi tape and a paint pen.
The experiments we've been attempting with Zedd's exoskeleton have been less than successful. We were working with what we had and using techniques we've never tried before so it was probably not the best plan to wait so long to start in earnest.
My basement is a wreck of thread, fabric and foam right now but this happens every year. All in all, Rita's in pretty good shape. Zedd really just needs figuring out what will work and then it should proceed quickly.
