Conzilla Costume Progress

It's all behind the cut, so iamradar and other potential Worldcon judges can avoid it.

(The costume is being exhibited at Conzilla Saturday night but not entered in the Monday night masquerade, but *will* be part of an entry at WorldCon)

White painter's coveralls arrived before CC24. Extra pockets (breast pockets and rear patch pockets) have been removed, and it's been spangled to within an inch of its life with "golden platinum", "glittering nightstar", "glittering silver", and "iridescent golden blue" fabric paints.

In my first adventures with Wonderflex, I have fabricated the lower jaw and upper and lower teeth for the head.

The spines (crest, fins, whatever you want to call the things coming out of the back of the head) have been encased in black holographic snakeskin spandex.

I'm patterning the muslin for the batting and skin for the head now (or, rather, going back to it as soon as I post this)

Edit: Here are the photos!
