So I decided earlier this year to build an automaton for a convention coming up. I probably won't have the body done but my plan is to have the head, an arm, and weapon done by then. The plan is one made to appear as a female.

I started by making a foil and duct tape pattern around a foam skull I have. I took the duct tape pattern and transferred it to tag stock

using the pattern I made this rough first attempt. I plan to remake it and glue the seems together better.

THe plan to make the face is to use a good quality mask to give the features.  Eyes will actually be bubblewands sunk into the foam.  Using two blue bubblewands sunk into the prototype head I get this look.

This is what I have so far. The neck is going to be one of the wide pool noodles with foam about it.  Pool noodles will be used for arms also. A PVC frame will be used to hold it all together in the end.  I am thinking I want the eyes to be green on the final product. I'll probably buy a red costume wig to be the Automaton's hair.

The weapon I plan to make is going to be a thin bladed sword with a rose motif on it.  The blade will be a yard stick.  I'll post more as I work on it.
