My New Project --------Warning "PIC HEAVY"

Post by Tubby Tusken » Sat Jun 30, 2012 11:47 pm

Well It's been over 2 Years now as a Tusken and I've been wanting do make another costume but I didn't know what to make. It's hard to find a costume that is suitable for a fat guy :lol: not many out there. I thought of Porkins LOL but I like the dark side to much :wink: . I've keep it a secret until now. Some members have known for a while, but Flash wants me to bring it to Maker Fair and work on it there so I better let the cat out of the bag. I have been working off and on for about a month but pretty heavy for the last week. I hope you all like it. ..........................................So Here we go Drum Roll Please :crazy:

Between this pic and the next the foam head collapsed :whatthe: so I had to remount the head on a stronger base and go on and fix the mess ups. I'm missing a few pics in between my phone crashed and I lost about 20 pics :mad: Oh well just got to move on.

These will serve you well with getting the costume proportions close to the real suits:

I remember quite a few years ago at MCCC when we saw someone as a gamor. My buddy told the guy that he looked just like my buddy's prom date. :rotflmao:

Hey, check this out! I just found the dimensions of the screen-used Gamorrean masks they made. :D

21.5" high, 14.5" wide and 19" deep.

(the height was to the top of the horn tips)
