Amy is working on a photography project for DragonCon 2004. I don’t want to give anything away before the gallery is opened, but I’ve provided some pictures of our costuming efforts on me. I tend to get dressed as a satyr with some frequency, so I’m getting used to it.
I’ve provided some better details of the ear I was working on with modeling putty (wax). It’s rather difficult to get it looking nice. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I did read that I should use “lubricating jelly.” I’m not exactly sure what that is, but Amy says it’s Vaseline. I also used spirit gum to help stick the wax to me (it stuck to my fingers better than my ear). I’m also interested in smoothing out the the line between the wax and my ear. Maybe that’s just more smoothing, but it’s difficult to keep the wax stuck while smoothing it.
