You Are Here Dennis' Lair -> Costumes I've Made -> Tiger, Third Version

Details

Tiger costume fashioned in the style of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats - modifications. Update from this costume
Completed: September 2011
Debuted: September 2011
Composition: Nylon spandex unitard, with acrylic paint airbrushed on it; yarn braid tail (not used this time), face paint (Ben Nye powder cake), half wig reused from the previous version; contacts not used
Airbrush Work: The Scent Of Art, Tacoma, WA

It had come time to basically have the previous version of this costume remade - so back to the best airbrush shop in the Seattle area I went. In this case, it was Alicia's first time actually painting the unitard while it was on the person, and from there, her work has just taken off for such projects.

To note, she did not paint the entire thing while I wore it. One trip involved dropping off the unitard and getting the initial markup done, and the second was to get touch-up work done and to pay and take it home.

This wound up being a significant improvement. The only problem I had was that I had forgotten the tail, contacts, and some details on the face paint. That's going to have to be debuggged next year I think.






Progression of work in front

The first shot is actually the back of the unitard, but for this case, it's mostly to show the base of what she did in order to properly center everything; this way, we could get something of a color pattern properly over the contours of my body and not have it look funny.
