This was one of those Project-Runway-One-Day Challenge! Haha! Rush but fun! I got a message from Maxene asking if I could make her brother Elmo Magalona's Finn the Human Bonnet Hat... Well, the challenge was not the design but since it's for Halloween, I was afraid fabric stores might already be closed... PLUS it's my birthday today (errr... yesterday... October 31) I wasn't sure I could pull it off! Haha!
But I love Adventure Time! I couldn't pass on the chance! I was greatly influenced by my son, Atreyu... Who made me watch it together with him... That I learned to like it too! Atreyu was so excited to find out that I might be making one for a client... So I might as well grant him his Adventure Time wish! Haha!
|My son, Atreyu as Finn the Human!|
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! Haha! So I went fabric hunting and found some options... I actually needed Atreyu's expertise choosing the right material for Finn the Human's Hat... I wanted to use like a towellete material but the shops didn't have it... I found some options but I had to consult my Adventure Time expert first for this expert opinion haha!
Finding the Right Fabrics...
|I saw this white fur material... but Atreyu's Expertise denied it! Haha!|
I asked Atreyu if this would do, but he said it's not the right material... because if Finn the Human wears something furry, he won't be "human-looking" anymore! Haha! That's so smart. Well, I'm relieved that I have an expert by my side while making this creation! Haha!
It was a relief to find Felt Fabric that's one of the most versatile fabrics I know... It can easily be shaped and tranformed into anything. Haha!
|Felt Fabric approved! Let's go FINN THE HUMAN!|
Even if it was a 1-Day Challenge... I still wanted to make an inspiration board for Elmo... Since Moodboard Making is my favorite part of designing! Haha!
Inspiration Board for Elmo...
If there was even longer time, I would have looked for a flannel fabric so it would be fluffier! Haha! I find the Jake Cap cute too! Who wants it? Haha!
|Hooray!! It's done!! I hope Atreyu and Elmo would be happy about it! Haha!|
Delivery Time! Haha! #ootd
|My Fairy-Kei Birthday and Delivery Ensemble! It's so fun dressing up! Haha!|
Of course I wouldn't miss out posting my #ootd! I delivered this on my birthday! Haha! So I looked extra-dressy! LOL!
