    A bit of an update on the wig. I managed to sort of fake having the hair wrap around my head and be clipped up front by using some of the wig that was next to where I cut some bangs. There’s still some work to do with straightening it but I doubt I’ll be able to get it perfect. I still have to make the final version of her clips with modeling clay but these construction paper ones should do for now. imgur.com/a/olIKGCn

    I haven't been able to really kig outdoors yet because of the cold weather (I don't have anything to wear that would keep me warm for long except for an eskimo costume) but I have found that it provides better lighting than artificial light. I still have the fogging issue though because I wear glasses under my mask.

    Sorry about the recent lack of updates. Events in my life are preventing me from continuing as quickly as I'd like to but I'm still working on it. Having a bit of trouble with styling the wig. The hairstyle is proving harder than I thought. I'm also trying to restore another wig that I'm going to use for a Serena kig since she has the same facial structure as Dawn so I could use the same mask.

    I’m honestly not really sure what it’s for. I could say it’s for our town’s small businesses but then it’s not at the same time. I might be fine since we sometimes have mascots and fursuiters come but it’s not really consistent.

    Every year my town holds a street festival and I was going to kig there as my first time however I’m a bit worried about how it will go concidering that it’s a small town and word spreads fast. If I’m seen unmasked the word may spread and as far as I’m aware I’m the only kig in a few miles (at least according to the map of kigs.) Am I being rational about this or am I blowing things out of proportion and getting worked up over nothing?

    I’ve been refining my hip pad’s shape and size so they don’t stick out so much and make me look like an Ultra Recon Squad member. The one on the left was been refined. imgur.com/a/LGWBjPn

    I don’t have anything to really show for the pokétech yet. I’m still trying to figure out what I have to do inside because I need to convert the signals. Not to mention writing the code for it to run the apps. (May be a bit of a challenge since I’m a mechanical engineer and not a software engineer. I’m glad the apps are simple.)

    I think I know the one that you’re talking about. Someone did a cosplay version of it over on DA. deviantart.com/creamypumpkin/a…i-hairstyle-cos-498233259 Something that I realized was that I’m going to need to make a bigger hat. The one that I have doesn’t fit over my mask. The pokétech has run into a small problem with the screen having too many pins than the Arduino. I may have to make some kind of breadboard to get the signal to split into the right values for each pin.

    A bit of an update on the wig. After the hair has completely covered my mask I figured that I would just cut it into bangs and I’m pretty pleased with the result. I used a picture of Dawn without her hat and her hair down as a reference and I think I got pretty close. imgur.com/a/ZubcCmx

    imgur.com/a/LhinI1W Here are some pictures of the hip pads in use. Slightly NSFW because my kig is in her underwear but I don’t have any form fitting clothes for it. Sorry for the messy wig.

    Greetings fellow kigurumi. Welcome to the forum.

    The top layer is only shifted over so I could try to separate it with a heated spatula and fuse it in place but I’m not sure if that’s the best course of action. Anyway I’m almost done with my hips but they need to be shaped a little more since they’re a little large right now. I might try to make an “M pad” using the scraps that I have from making my breast forms but I have no idea where to start with that.

    Yea. The printer glitched in the final hours. It took 27 hours for it to print only for that to happen. I might fill it in with some modeling clay or make another mask and repurpose this one for Halloween and be a broken doll. The pokétech is actually a part of a series I’m doing on deviantart that I’m calling Project Replon. Fully functional replicas for cosplay and everyday life is what I’m striving to create with what little engineering knowledge I have.

    @Takami Oh. I didn't realize you were doing a Dawn kig. How far did you get? It's actually done for the most part but the wig and hips are the last things that I need to do. I've actually been trying to upload pictures but for some reason they're too large to upload and I don't want to post low res pictures from my 3DS camera. I'm also working on a poketech by using an ardruno an a touchscreen from an old DS sta.sh/01hqhagw7pul Me in the whole suit so far aminoapps.com/c/cosplay/page/b…ukorKqnL2…

    I’ve taken the advice that you guys gave me and attached a strip of Velcro to the top of my mask. Now I just have to figure out how to attach the other piece to the wig. Might try sowing it in through the mesh. Having issues with submitting pictures now. Going to have to figure out how to make the file size smaller.

    I've been tryng to get used to my kig by wearing it around the house and sometimes play some Wii in it but is there a better way to do this?

  • User Avatar

    I'm not quite done yet with this project. The wig s giving me a few issues wit styling it into Dawn's hairstyle. managed to make the hair clips with a few hair clips, construction paper, and super glue but I may remake them with modeling clay.

    I've moved back in with my family after a semester away and they don't know I'm a kigurumi performer. I want to tell them but I'm not sure how to approach it and I'm frankly worried that they may associate it with he furry community which they don't like very much.(No offence to anyone that may be reading this. Love you work.) The sooner I tell them the better so I can avoid an awkward situation where they see me suit up or find me wearing it around the house.

    How to wash your RTPS hadatai

    Is there a difference in the materials used between zetaitime and RTPS? I have to hand wash mine in cold water. I've also heard that a salt bath helps with something but I'm not sure what due to the tutorial being in Japanese...

    I was washing my hada and noticed that there were black marks on the bottom of my feet and on my fingertips as well as a bit of fraying on the fingers. Is there an easy way to get rid of the spots and repair the fingers?
