Jasper 'needed' three alien heads for a drama presentation this week.
Here is the inspiration image he and his friends had Googled up:
I did suggest large balloons and papier mache might be the go for good alien head shapes, but he insisted on fabric. And what else is one to do on a day at home with a mildly ill four-year-old, than sew alien heads?
|I like the spookiness of the (unintentional) blur here|
Extremely technical details: I just made a basic hood shape and filled in the front with a flat piece, then zigzagged on elastic around the bottom at the back to pull it in, and added darts at the front to help it sit better. I think they add a certain skull-like menace, too. Nostrils done in fabric marker. Voila, three alien heads.
