After five weeks of creating and sewing for the “Chicago Boys” I found myself feeling quite proud. You just never know…sometimes what’s in your head doesn’t translate well into reality.
We started with Daffy. My mock run left his beak rather “square”….
Back to the sewing table to “reconstruct”…
The final result was…
Forgive me for tooting my own horn, but I think it turned out amazing!
From there we moved on to Tweety Bird…it took me about two days to figure out the beak, but once I did, Tweety became a “show stopper”…
I know! I can hear your “awe”!
Marvin the Martian took far more time than I imagined. While he wasn’t anything I wrote home about, I think he was still rather “out of this world”!
By this time, my eyes were burning from lack of sleep, carpel tunnel began to kick in and I was really trying to stay focused…
Next on the list was Taz….
It’s just the “head”, but pretty spiffy–even if I do say so myself!
Finally, the last minute costume…YoSamite Sam…the one I dreaded, yet the one that I absolutely loved. Please note that because this was a last minute order, and I was still trying to finish the above costumes, the “Chicago Boys” were responsible for their own 50 gallon hat!
Don’t you just LOVE, love, LOVE that mustache! Over 2100 yards of RED Yarn!!!
So you’ve met the characters one on one…would you like to see them as a collective group?
Without further hesitation, I present to you the 2009 Looney Tunes Costumes Collectively!
