Ambush Bug Mask - Costuming & Sewing
Ambush Bug Mask Sketch - Oh lord, I forgot about the antenna!
My friend Stuart is teaching me Japanese, and as payment, Will and I feed him dinner when we do lessons, and I agreed to make him (attempt to make) an Ambush Bug mask for DragonCon.
So far, we've picked up materials (green spandex, yellow trim). I'm a little scared to get started because there's the always present "What if you screw this up?" voice in my head.
Fortunately, I've been emailing back and forth about sewing spandex with the illustrious and dynamic Jared Axelrod and he's given me several good tips. And I've found an online pattern for making a mask/hood in spandex.
Between these two things, I may be able to make it! Stay tuned!
