Subject: [F-Costume] Fake leather out of felt?
As if I didn't have enough projects going on ... I signed up to make a costume
for Timmy, ThinkGeek's monkey mascot. I'm doing a superhero costume, as part of
it I will need to make stuffed-monkey sized boots and gauntlets.
There may be a vinyl thin enough (and available in red) to make tiny boots and
gloves without looking ridiculous, but I haven't found it. The same problem
holds for using real leather. I remember seeing a discussion of a way to treat
felt with glue to make something that would look enough like leather for stage
purposes, and that should be good for this. Trouble is, I can't find that
Has anyone tried something like this? I have some test pieces drying on the
porch, but no point in completely re-inventing the wheel. Especially since this
needs to be at ThinkGeek HQ by mid-July at the latest.
