OK,I want to make my ds a turtle costume, and I came up with the idea to make him a "shell" out of papier mache. I was thinking of using a large bowl as the mold to form the papier mache on, but I was wondering if there would be something better to use as a form for a shell? Also, any ideas on how he can wear it? I was thinking of making straps, and he can wear it like a backpack? With some felt or something for the front, over his tummy, so that in front he looks like the bottom of a turtle, make sense? I was going to just get some tights for him, and make little covers for his shoes out of felt to look like little turtle feet, with nails and everything.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to make it better? I kinda wanted the shell to have a "rim", kwim? My kitchen bowl that would use has no edges, so it would be an "edgeless" turtle shell. : What can I do to make the edge for the shell?
Creative mamas, help me out! :
