Everybody was Kung Fu Panda fighting, sewing fast as lightning.
In fact, it was a little bit frightening….especially seeing this in the kitchen
Jessica, who is behind Magical Quests themed parties and events, asked if I could make three costumes for the Kung Fu Panda event she was hosting and I was so grateful for the opportunity. I ended up making Master Shifu, he’s the red panda above on the right, Lord Shen the evil albino peacock and Snake, there’s Jessica below as Snake.
All in all, these costumes took 8 days, that covers conception, sourcing fabric and construction. In reality, three of those days were consumed by my day job, teaching English at a university, and it was the end of a course so when I say 8 days, I don’t really mean 8 days. This truly was a case of Get the Fuck On With It. I’ll detail them in later posts but for now enjoy these pics of the costumes, I really enjoyed making them.
Thanks to the investement from the Olympics, we live near a pagoda. Perfect for Kung Fu photo shoots.
