Close up of my Big Daddy doll!
Made it to go with my Eleanor cosplay. Made out of the same kinds of found objects as what was used in the design from the game. Much Thanks to Kyle/Ex-Shadow/hubby for helping me with the parts that involved sawing/drilling with power tools and the weathering. We made this in literally a day.
Here's a reference from the art book: i407.photobucket.com/albums/pp...
Baseball and paper clips came from Target. My hubby took the liberty of gouging out the face and tearing it up, and I painted it with a watered down leather paint to get a nice off-white color. Got screws from home depot for his "lights" and "camera"
The watch face was from Salvation Army. We had a hard time finding an oval shaped watch for cheap, and while the one we found wasn't completely accurate, it was good enough for something made on such short notice. XD The wires over the face were bent paper clips.
Couldn't get an old film canister anywhere, so I we wrapped some black vinyl around an empty spool, and we used an EVA foam piece on top for the lid. The thicker wires running through it and into the head was made out of a really thick wire we had around the apartment. The Bottle cap was from a coca cola bottle we got while at Home Depot, and I just painted the rabbit on it and then gold around the side. The nail running through it was also from Home Depot.
The rope arms are made out of leftover rope from Kyle's Big Daddy costume. The body and hands are made out of various fabric scraps and stuffed with polyfil. The stripes on the legs and the pink-ish body were painted with fabric paints since I didn't have those particular fabrics on-hand. Paint was used to weather areas and make them look dirty. The body is just hot-glued to the head because it's not very heavy.
His drill is an old thimble we had lying around with a spring made from wrapping a thinner wire around a small rod.
I used blue embroardery thread for the string. It's just tied behind the doll in the artwork, but I actually had to take a leather needle and sew it into the head so it'd come out at the top (otherwise, the weight of the doll's head would just have him fall forward. I don't know if the artist realized this when he designed the doll, though I could have just done something wrong lol).
