I assisted in helping design a new character for the commissioner. We worked for a few hours to develop this very fun pink tiger.
The costume's main feature are his LED lights, embedded in his eyes and cheek which can be turned on/off. We worked together on several parts of sewing and the feet. The claws (not made by me) light up as well. The mask is a foam mask built on a plastic mesh. The eyes have a "follow me" effect to where it always appears he is looking at the viewer. All of the fur on the mask was hand sewn. This is one of my favorite costumes thus far!
