    Just a small update here. I've switched to duct tape and the eyes seem to be a lot better now. Now if only my wigs wouldn't frizz up in this heat and humidity... Picked up the fabrics for the new hat that will hopefully fit on my kig head (As well as some for a secret project). The poketch is progressing nicely. I just need to figure out the pinout of my touchscreen before I can attach it to my Arduno and test the program. Not too confident because my programming skills are a little shoddy at th…

    I've started work on the Poketch that Dawn wears. I'm starting to learn JavaScript bit by bit so I can program the apps properly but it's not going to be finished for a while. I've also switched from Blender to Fusion 360 so it will hopefully be easier to create things without the weird errors. On a slightly unfortunate note the heat and humidity these past few weeks have revealed a slight flaw in my mask. Turns out the eyes have a tendency to fall out because the tape I'm using to hold them in …

    @Rui Illuriel Well what they do in Japan is that they have an audio track playing with the voices, music, and sound effects playing as the show goes on leaving the kigs to synchronize their movements to it. Theme parks here do the same thing for their mascots.

    From what I’ve seen the voices are on a prerecorded track with the sound effects and music. Of course live voice acting could be done as well though actors backstage. Some shows do have a narrator that’s not in kig as well.

    I know that kigurumi isn’t very popular in the US but what if there were some original stage shows to help boost their popularity? As a theater minor how feasible would it be to do one for a local play house using original characters and stories? I’m aware of how much it would cost to make multiple suits as well as coriographing everything. Not to mention getting the performers used to the suits might be an issue as well.

    I may be a little late but to answer your questions: 1. Yes a half shell is a good option. I'm using one for my Dawn/Serena kig. Something you might want to try though is making the sides go a little farther back and add snaps to the wig to secure the bottom to the mask's bottom edge. This will prevent people from seeing inside the mask from behind since Aiwarn doesn't seem to have a hairstyle that would easily cover the whole back of the head. 2. You actually have some decent potential for seei…

    I'm not sure if it helps but when I painted mine I went to a Lowes got a few swatches and matched the color of my hadatai. The smallest size that they sold me could paint ten masks and it wasn't too expensive ether. I'm not really sure how well a silicone based interior paint will hold in the long run but the results are great.

    Quote from cici: “You need to sweat more! ” So sweat is what caused this unusual change? For a second I was going to blame black hand since it comes from metallic objects.

    I’m not really sure what happened but when I first got my bodysuit I couldn’t use my phone and eventually over time I was was able to use it without a problem. What could have possibly happened and has this happened to anyone else?

    Those are the ones that I’ve been using to style the wig. I think the main problem that I’m having is with my wig stand being smaller than my actual head so the clips end up sitting higher than they should be. I actually reworked my kigs eyes a bit by removing some of the internal structure of my mask to make a flatter space to mount them. What I removed was only some of the support structure that the printer used for itself so no harm was really done to it. I may actually repaint the face and s…

    Well it looks simple at first but when it actually comes to doing it I can never get it to look right. It doesn’t help that I tried to strengthen a curly wig and didn’t get it perfectly straight. As far as the hat goes I’m going to make it out of fleece. I might even make a second set of clips for her winter outfit (when I start making it but I have a Ranamon kig to work on for practice)

    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
