I am thinking of working on creating a life-size or close to life-size Gobi that would sit on your shoulder, much in the style of Woodbabies:
If you’ve been to a ren fair you have seen these puppets. Also, I have seen full latex non-puppets like this:
I would love to be able to create the Gobi for latex since it’d be a little more economical but I have never worked with the stuff…so if there is another artist out there familiar with making hollow latex props, perhaps we can combo our skills. I’m totally open to TRS getting involved too. I think this would be an awesome, fun idea that could bring in some cash to TRS since we will be seeing some cosplayers out there! With latex it would be easily reproducible.
If not latex, I may try to do one out of clays and fabrics and see how it goes…but of course it would be a one-of creation.
What I would like to have though and photos of Gobi, specifically the top of his head and back. If you can grab shots in-game I’d be much obliged.
