    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.

    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…

    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.

    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…5d97d214f8d8d503e77e30ade 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!

    Great! Keep up your momentum and don't slow down. 99% of those who start making a mask never finish. Be the 1%!!

    Quote from Miss Kiki: “Cici: Can any of our Japanese guests provide us with more historical background from Japan? Kiki” That'll take some time and a few face to face meetings with them. I'll see what I can do by the end of the year.

My entire life force is devoted it seems to Animegao Kigurumi, so in that sense I have no free time. So...... Ummmm.... That's a great question @Diskid I have no answer for you....

    The best way to make eyes for a mask?

    cici - - Tutorials

    Post

    That's a great question Buff. Simple eyes can be hand drawn, scanned at printed on vinyl or photo paper. Mesh is simple, go to a fabric store and find some transparent black material. Makers always use simple materials for eyes ( flat eyes , there are no exotic magical material. Try a transparent clear laminate over the photo paper to protect them. It is up to the individual not to overthink the process.

    Well here's the thing.... Me for example, My hips are a natural 33" Padded 53" Waist natural 34" In kig 30" Chest natural 36" Boobed 46" So there is a difference slightly? Plus for a cleavage suit you do need to give you natural chest sizing (for the inner vest) If you can wait until you can pad to measure I think you'll be much happier with the fit of the suit~ They aren't cheap by any means! If you can't wait then by all means measure and order ( I'd get and inexpensive suit for starts )
