I'm in over my head

Why did I ever tell my kid I could do this. Maybe because she said "Mom, you can do this!!" and to not let her down I said, "sure babe, I can do it!"

So since Oct 1st I have embarked on this quest to make her Eziocostume.

I'm not a sculptor. I can create a lot of things but sculpting isn't one of my strong suits. Especially with a bum hand. I've made this out of cold porcelain and waiting on it to dry so it can be sanded and painted. I hope like hell it doesn't fall to pieces. I'm aware it looks like poo.

looks pretty good to me... don't be so hard on yourself.

-she's going to wear it probably once.

-you've put more effort in already than 99% of parents would ever do.

She wears her costumes all the time. You haven't seen anything until you have walked outside and seen a ninja hunting easter eggs or a vampire picking strawberries. I should have pics of this.

Looked at the Ezio pic again.. is that thing silver? Can you wrap it in aluminum foil or maybe heat shrink foil to it somehow? Would that help its integrity any?

Looks amazing so far, and will rock the high Heavens once you add paint and detailing. You make me feel bad for shoving my kids into Halloween hand me downs.

That's incredible. I'm not familiar with the character but just looked it up and that looks identical down to every detail to me. Mom of the month award if you ask me.

Thanks, I kinda do have a tendency to be too critical of myself.

I need your help!

I'm having a problem trying to figure out what to mount this thing to. Since it's going to be a belt buckle essentially, I need to mount it to something that will keep it from breaking in half. It needs to be something that's rounded since it will be going around her waist. Something that I can cut with a jigsaw, scissors or heat gun things but sturdy enough so that it doesn't flex too much. I also need to attach 4 buckles to it. It will need to look like this sortof...

Yeah, I have to sand it and paint it.

I have some silver leaf spray paint i'm going to spray it with and do the detailing with black mixed into the silver.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
