The Penguins costume / Pingvini, kostim za maškare


Moja tri pingvina!
Ovo su prve maškare
najmlađeg pingvina,
prije nekih 7 godina.
 These are my 3 penguins;
first costume party
for the youngest,
some 7 yrs ago.
 Ovako nekako sam to zamislila, poput ovih slikica pingvina.
A sama inspiracija mi je bio moj sin koji tada još nije najbolje hodao, nego se stvarno gegao poput pingvina.

This is how I imagined this costume, something like these penguins on the pictures. But, the real inpiration was my little son who couldn't walk proper then, his walk actually reminded me of a penguin walk.

I naravno, opet isprike za nedovoljni broj i (ne)kvalitetu slika. U moju obranu, reći ću da sam onda više snimala na kameru nego slikavala, što se pokazalo lošijim izborom. Ali, tko će ga znati?...

And, again, I am so sorry for the lack of photos, expecially for its (un)quality. In my defence, I'll say that I used video camera more then regular photo camera back then. Who would have known that I will be needing some penguin photos in a near future?




Ovo mi je bilo prvi put da radim sa spužvom. Kupila sam spužvu 1m x 2m, debljine 2 cm.
Iskrojila sam je, izrezala, obojala sa crnim pigmentom
za boju za zidove. Ali, pošto nisam dotad nikad bojala spužvu,
a čula sam kako se to radi, nisam dodala malo vode u pigment (da se dobije na količini), nego sam dodala Jupola (bijela boja za zid) - tako da mi pingvini nisu ispali crni, nego sivi. Što, opet, nije tako loše.
Tako obojanu spužvu sam zašila ručno.
A ovaj bijeli dio (trbuh i glava) mi je ispao dosta neoredno (kod farbanja), tako da sam odlučila uzeti jednu staru plahtu, iskrojiti oblik i to isto prišiti ručno.
Za ova 3 pingvina trebalo mi je 2 spužve, ovog najmanjeg sam napravila od više manjih komada koja su mi ostala kad sam napravila veće pingvine.
Izrezala sam i ruke,stopala, kljun i mašnu, sve od iste spužve i obojala sa žutim pigmentom. Mašna mi je narančasta jer sam imala par kapi crvenog, pa sam pomiješala sa žutim.
Na stopala sam sa donje strane našila lastik i tako im navukla na cipele. To je bilo super efektno, kao pravi pingvini.
Ispod ove spužve nisu bile potrebne nikakve jakete.


This was my very fist time working with the foam. I bought a piece of foam 1m x 2m (where I live, I buy it in a store that sells paints) 2 cm thick.
I cut the shapes, then colored with a black pigment (that's a small bottle of paint that you buy in a paint shop and normally use it when you want to add some color to the white foundation paint for the inside walls). I never used pigment before, so I didn't know that I am supposed to add some water with it (to get more color), so I added some white foundation paint, so my penguins turned out grey instead of black. But, I liked it even better that way anyway.
Then I handstitched all parts together.
This white head/belly part turned out pretty messy, because I messed it up painting, so I decided to cover that area. I made that shape out of old bed sheet, and hand stitched it also.
I used 2 pieces of foam to make 3 pengins like that; the smallest was made from several  pieces that were left out when I finished bigger penguins.
I cut also beak, bow, flippers and foot from the same foam. I colored it with yellow pigment, except for the bow - I had some red paint + yellow = orange bow.
From the bottom of the foot, I handstitched a elastic band to secure it on kids' foot / shoe. The effect was really good, they looked just like small pengins :)
Kids didn't need any jackets under this costume.

I tako su se pingvini sa Južnog pola dogegali  do nas na sjevernu polutku toga hladnog, kišnog dana....
And that's how the South Pole penguins came to visit us on the northern hemisphere on that cold, rainy day...




And here are other costumes that I have made :
