Thanks, Humper. I figured it had to be something like that, but noone seemed to know. Hope he's feeling better.

I hope you're prepared to troop just about every event from this point forward because this costume will never get a break. Chris, this is outstanding!! I cannot wait to see it.

I tried as best I could to take a pic just holding the veil onto the back. I'm not glueing anything until I get my marching orders from duck!! :P

Sorry about the green foam. It goes inside the jaw (I'm pretty sure) but it fell out before the picture!!

Unfortunately, in his desire to get my mask shipped (and me off his back) my mask maker didn't finish the instruction/hair pattern manual that he is providing to all his clients. As soon as I get those, I'm off-but since I REALLY don't want to screw this part up, I'm waiting for those. :wink:

I worked for quite a while padding the inside of the mask to get it to fit - still having a tough time getting the mouth to open, but hopefully the hinge will loosen up and the punching of the hair will help loosen things up as well. Started gluing the hair onto the head - the goal is to have the head done tomorrow.
Here are a couple pics with the mask - needs trimming and grooming still, but at least you don't have to look at my ugly mug any more!! :lol:
