    Please don't melt them out. It will cause you so much trouble. Get an inexpensive rotary grinder or borrow one from somebody. Here is a tweet showing how~ twitter.com/cicikigi/status/933077956708114432 I'm really rooting for you to get this project complete @Buff55

    Quote from Miss Kiki: “Cici: Can any of our Japanese guests provide us with more historical background from Japan? Kiki” I have an answer! "Well, Amateur Animegao Kigurumi started back in 1995 (1994), Kigurumi itself started all the way back in 18th Century. it was called nuigurumi' The form of Animegao Kigurumi was turned out to become known around 1998. Sailormoon show was probably one of the influencing content to develop Animegao Kig culture." Professor Kazunori Uhyo Sugiura Associate Profes…

    So glad you received your hadatai. For eyes rear mounting is the most adaptable. Make the eyes slightly oversized cutting them from the photopaper. Remember to cut your port prior to installing the eyes with small strips of tape. I use Gorilla Tape on all my builds. For mesh to obscure the holes created by the ports get some sheer black fabric at a fabric store, They will sell you small amounts for little cost. Tape the material onto the back of the eyes before mounting them. And yes, this is co…

    Reducing the shell width to 7 inches let you just squeak by. kigurumionline.org/index.php/A…1392b9c0480ec3fa9cb7d44d7 Wall thickness of the shell will have an impact on the interior dimensions. You're doing great!!!

    Great to hear you can resume on your project. I took liberties to scale your design at 8 1/4" in width. I'm concerned with the port layout being too far outside of the useable viewing area. The small rectangle is set at 2 1/4 inches in width. The middle rectangle is set at 2 3/4 inches in width The third rectangle is at 3 1/4 inches in width The two small dark rectangles are the sweet spot for viewing straight on The larger boundary of the larger rectangle is right at the outside of usable viewi…

    Quote from Glamshine: “Hello everyone. I’m looking to 3D print a few masks for a film and was seeing if someone with experience could could help me answer some questions. 1. Is there a 3D printer that is capable of printing a mask that needs very little to no post cleanup such as sanding etc? ” Yes there are. Newer models can do that however the cost of the larger format printers that can are over 8K usd. Quote: “ 2. Is it possible to find a filament color that is the same flesh tone color for t…

    Quote from Buff55: “I was planning on imposing my body over a picture of my character to calculate the padding. Is this effective?” Proportions is very important noting that we're attempting to mimic a certain character build while working with what we have as our own body type. What you're thinking of doing to mimic is a good direction.

    Suggestion from a maker's stand point. Punch out the eye sockets to facilitate rear mounting the eyes. You'll have more options for viewports as well as graphic design of the eyes themselves.

    Alternatives to corset?

    Corsets work because of their supporting "bones" to give a consistent curve @Buff55 I'm sure a wrap will smooth out some areas but without a supporting element I hesitate to say the resulting effect to be dubious. Ne reason why you shouldn't give it a try though!! Ask questions, this site is for questions.

    What did you make it out of (the mask) ?

    Quote from DreamRemena: “ There's also sun-bleaching where you leave your fabrics out in bright sun. I've heard this can turn bright colors more muted and pastel but I've never tried this method myself (also kind of pointless if the weather is cloudy-) ” This suggestion scares me @DreamRemena I would fear the UV rays would start to breakdown the lycra's elasticity.

  • User Avatar

    I do feel your pain on this one. As you already have mentioned, chemicals and lycra don't mix, so lightening through a chemical process will more than likely destroy the elasticity of the material. I do know that with age of any material it will naturally lighten with washing cycles. I've held your mask this past May noting the flesh tone is a shade or two off what MWF sells. You might try going to other way by purchasing a white hadatai a dying it. Of course there may be others here in the foru…

    Hey congratulations! The hard parts done, now the fun starts.

  • User Avatar

    Keep going, looking great! Bumm pads can always be separate. I use different shapes and sizes depending on the character and waht she's wearing at the time.

  • User Avatar

    Hey Great questions, I have a few answers Padding for the most part is created by the "user" due to for one thing cost. I know their there are a few sites out there that sell various types of pads made from an array of different materials but, you're going to pay to play. My studio did at one time make custom pads but found that the cost of materials vs labor costs were substantially higher than the market could bare so we seissed production. However we did create a DIY here ---> The Ultimate Gu…

    Hey! Great first run. It took my a few runs to tweak mine to what they are now but you've got a real head start. Take a look at the ride image. I extended the pad a tiny bit down towards the knee to break the severe curve/transition between the thigh and knee. kigurumionline.org/index.php/A…1392b9c0480ec3fa9cb7d44d7 Something to think about for your next run through. The thought of making new right now would be overwhelming (well at least for me). Keep up the good work and never lose the magic!
