And the dream becomes a reality...

Construction begins!

(Just a note... the images on this page are Clickable)

After Chad drew the concept sketches (Based on drawings by Jade Fox), and Herbie added his own touch to them, we were ready to start construction... but there was one problem. The fur that I had originally picked out for the tan markings was not available any more, so they had to find something else. Fortunately, the sales person at the fur company owns a Rottweiler, which has the same basic coloring as a Doberman, so she was able to find just the right replacement fur :)

Around May 6th, the fur arrived. It was amazing how soft it was. I literally sat and snuggled the roll of fur for about an hour.

About the same time, Chad started carving the head for my suit.


This is the way the foam came...

After chopping it up and glueing it together

And we start carving! Note the reference lines that have been drawn on the head.

Here Chad is, carving away at the head...

A Bit more progress. It's looking more three dimensional now.

Some of the fine trimming.

And the head-hole. I hope it's big enough.

Making the hole bigger, so that I actually fit in it.

What a MESS!

And I try it on for the first time!

Wheeeee! It Fits! (and it's looking good!
