Absolem face

Based on a footie sleeper but substantially modified. The challenge was to make it look like a caterpillar and have him still able to walk. The bands on the back were done with zigzag cut fleece strips on the outside and stretched elastic on the inside to make the pucker. The face is a clear plastic mask over blue face paint. The extra hands are stuffed gloves with short arms. The antenna are wire wrapped to give them a little shape. The hookah is a wooden candlestick painted gold andfish tank tube with gold paint blown inside.
