Woot woot, gonna be doing a Yoshi cosplay!



Will be made out of fleece for huggability ^^ but not fur cause...well....he's a dinosaur....

Have been having so much trouble getting hold of the right shade of green for the fleece....boooooo, I may have found somewhere online that does it, £4.50 a mtr, guess i'll have to take it Wink Just waiting for them to send me samples!
Gonna use stuffing for the head, thing on the back and tail, and probably gonna made the spikes 3d and stuff them with stuffing too. Decided on stuffing instead of foam because i think foam will be too angular for this as Yoshi is basically soft curves on the head and tail.

Here's a couple of well done Yoshi cosplays (the best two i could find online).
Have linked them cause the photo's are hugeee and I don't know how to resize ^^

The second one I love because it really get's the body of Yoshi(s) just right ^^ so I'm probably gonna have the shorter legs and low down 'crotch' they have on these.

Any idea's or tips or just comments are appriciated!

the thing on his back is a turtle shell, so might be good making that out of something more enduring than stuffed fabric. otherwise, can't wait to see it, and really hope you find the right shade of green this time

Little update:

Looks ok, better than i thought, but will probs redo the head at some point when i have more time to dedicate.
Will try and get some pictures!

Well, here's some pictures of how it's going, only little bits to do now really. I know most of you have seen these pics on facebook, but here they are again lol
Not too happy with the way the head sits buttttt considering this is the second costume I've made....ever, I'm pretty happy lol, can't turn the head but who needs peripheral anyway?. Looking back ofc I'd have done things differently, but overall, I'm happy it's just almost bloody done o_0.
Next cosplays will be low maintenance to wear -.-





ps. the tail wags ><

props ot Becks for taking the pics for me Razz
