I'll uh... give it a proper name sometime.
I don't know what gender it is. Oh well.
IT'S DONE except for a few tweaks. For instance, my skin shows at the wrists and neck, so I'm gluing flaps to cover it up right now.
Mask. I used wire mesh to make a mask fitted to my face, then built it up with foam. The silver you see what damn fucking useful; it's an Axius-brand silver sunlight-reflecting tarp. The black is pleather. The teeth are a jawset from Van Dyke's Taxidermy spraypainted silver and then the gums were painted with acrylics. The 'mane/hair' is a combination of pleather, the tarp, and electrical cords (two plugs hang down on either side of my face). The whiskers and insides of the ears are needles. The eyes are sunglasses lenses.
Gloves. These were simply built on a pair of gloves bought at a thrift store. The claws are a plastic sherbert container I sanded down and spraypainted silver. Tarp and pleather were used again; the armored bits are tarp/pleather over aluminum soda cans.
Tail. Made of the same stuff as the hair/mane and attached to a belt.
Body padding. A muscle shirt I made by hot gluing foam and then using duct tape to round out the shapes and add reinforcement. Tarp was added near the neck to simulate the entire chest being that same silver.
