Hey guys, long time no see!
Well with my ROTJ build coming to an end, I've started working on a few other costumes.
One that I've been wanting to build for a while is of Kankuro from Naruto (I am a multi-facited nerd).
The unique thing about this costume is that the costume itself, is not the most Difficult thing about this build. The hardest thing to build will be the human-sized "puppet" this character uses as a weapon.
Named "Karasu" (Crow in Japanese), this puppet is roughly 4 feet tall and sports 4 arms multi-jointed.
here's a pic.
Now, in the anime, this puppet is presumably made of wood, but since I lack the skill ang patience necessary for carving, I'll be using fiberglass.
The most difficult part of the puppet build will be the head. here's a pic of one that was made by someone else (not me) out of wood. any advise would help.
