This is the front now that I’ve re-latexed the head and hands. They are still kind of strange-looking but the deadline approaches, so I’m just going to go with it.
I’m really happy with this fabric I found at Lincoln Fabrics. It’s exactly what I had in mind when sketching her out. As a side note, I also realized they sell foam pieces there which might save me some trips to Foam Mart in the coming months.
Here is the back side showing the foam section bottom half. I just used hot glue and sticky wax to arrange the dress around the form.
And here are the mouth shapes I baked using sculpy. I love that bright red color! I already did the sound-reading for the voice track – it’s Sally Fields oscar acceptance speech, “You like me!”. But this character is a combo actress/ beauty queen and definitely not Sally Fields.
And finally, the golden, curly locks. Thanks to Ralph’s at the Marina for donating their twisty-ties to my project! I painted them white and then yellow with acrylic paint.
Oh yeah, the oscar itself! It’s just sculpy and I burnt it (oops) but hopefully it will be okay with paint.
I can’t wait for it to all come together!
