ok please note i had no idea what i was doing for any of this and theres probably a much better way to construct a base BUT this is what…. ended up happening
the vague shape of it is getting there … . .
needs more bands
becoming a flat onion
the top is removed so i can get inside of it
… and then a band of cardboard is placed on the inside to support it ( its standing !! )
the bands are cut on the places where they jut out and then overlapped and taped, so the shape is smoother but its STILL an onion
so i cut the whole damn thing in half and added a big band of cardboard in the middle to lengthen it out. the Orb is being born
its rounded out a little bit more on the sides and then the mouth is cut out
F A B R I C ( this is the point in the game where my gluegun stopped working, and so everything from this point on is glued by me heating the sticks over a candle flame. nice
the seams on the fabric are cut and glued into place ( and hand stitched in a lotta places and a lot of em look, Really bad in the back h hah HA ) and the teeth ( fleece, cardboard to keep em flat, and a little bit of stuffing ) are thrown in the mouth
handstitched the seams on the tongue, got the base for it ready and the eyes cut out
the EYES ( cardboard with white on one side, black on the other, and a little thin strip of black going along the edge ) ( also the pupils arent glued down yet hey )
THERE THEY ARE
tulle time, so much goddamn tulle
SO much of it just everywhere on the back its a mess, the back looks like an awful grape but it doesnt matter its the BACK
heres the Looking Hole ( theres black mesh netting over the top ) – the little pink eye details are also in
and then here it is, this Mess ( tights and boots both are probably gonna change but Oh Well ) i dont know what the tongue was doing so crooked in these shots but its TOO LATE

@shigacajun and I got matching Duetto dresses from Bunni Designs and mine arrived today!! Super lovely quality and a bargain price, I highly recommend them! A warning that the sizes run SLIGHTLY small: I wear a Large T-shirt size but was advised to get an XL dress size for that reason, and it’s a comfortable fit without being overly baggy.
The dress comes in Yuuri’s blue as well as Victor’s original maroon and Duetto purple. There are other lovely YOI goodies too so check them out!
If this shits cheap I’m buying 20 pounds of it and making
Pics of some finished shit?
I remember this stuff in product design class. Best shit ever.
little-dragneel WE NEED THIS!!
COULD YOU IMAGINE THE COSPLAY SHIT ONE COULD DO WITH THIS????
Hey guys, just wanted to butt in here.
This is exactly the same stuff as Instamorph. And guess what? Instamorph is actually cheaper. A 400g (gram) bag of Plastimake is $30 (Can you say ouch?) Where as a 12 ounce jar of Instamorph is only $17. Why is this important? 12 ounces = roughly 340 grams. That’s almost that same amount, but wayyyy cheaper. Not only that, but it seems Plastimake is currently out of stock? Further, Instamorph also has colour packets for $12, and Plastimake’s are $15.
I’m not saying Plastimake is bad, i’m just saying if you aren’t exactly rich, it’s good to have a cheaper alternative that’s just as good.
There’s your daily dose of marketing info for the day, happy crafting! 😀
I wanted to add that not only can you use this stuff straight up (and there are quite a few companies out there making it now at different price points), you can ALSO use it to make homemade Worbla, which is way cheaper than the stuff you can buy online for armor and other crafting (all you really need is some flour, the moldable pellets, and heat to make it)
@ace-of-the-woods is this relevant to your interests?
In the 80′s when I was a kid this material caught on for a while under the name “fantastic plastic” and came in rectangular sheets of various colors and even patterns and I wondered what the heck ever happened to it
I DIDNT KNOW THIS EXISTED! My broke ass be crying about worbla WHEN WE HAVE THIS?
me realizing my experiences with sewing have been a lie this whole goddamn time:
My granny taught me these. We called them.blind stitches.
Wow I didn’t kno
I have to try these
I remember learning these in middle school.
I HAVE BEEN DOING IT WRONG FOR THE PAST TEN THOusAND YeARS
