Yeah, everything's pretty much melted even up here.

...I hope.

Remember how I was going to the super duper craft store last week? Well, I'm finally getting around to it today, anything I should be looking for ?

Ooh! Peachy-colored fuzzy velveteen? Little Puffalump collar flowers? Purple drank for the judges?

I dropped in today to see about the "make your car a bunny" kit nose. It fits! I think it'd look fine in pink, but peach would be better. Unfortunately, I lack sewing skills, so it might just have to stay pink or get a peach spray paint job. It even has little whiskers coming out of the nose! (While cute, whiskers are not found on Puffalumps. Oh well.)

Also, the seatbelts now fit little coco-sized people!

Also, also: I have come to the conclusion that Puffalumps are disarmingly cute little creatures whose sole purpose in life is to be evil and make you oversleep. (My "short nap on this couch" is now "aw, dang it, I hope Freebirds is still open, man. I ain't goin' home in the pitch black again, either.")

Oops, got this message too late to make it to the store, but a couple questions- Is it flowers or lace (it looks like lace in the pictures, that would be easy), and what is purple drank? I'm not sure that comes from the craft store...maybe the liquor store?

Purple Drank.




Purple drank is a slang term for a recreational drug popular in the hip hop community in the southern United States, originating in Houston, Texas. Its main ingredient is prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine.[1] Cough syrup is typically mixed with ingredients such as Sprite soft drink or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy. The purplish hue of purple drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup.

Heh, I was kidding about the purple drank, and now that the nose is mounted and looks good 'nuff, I might not need peachy velveteen.

Puffalumps like Fluffy Bunny, Eater of Souls, have flowers and lace on the collar. :)

Flower:


Lace (see collar):


(Bed now. Bunny update later. All we really need now is a tail...and whatever else Bo's going to do to it.)

I think I'm going to need to figure out some way to determine the scale of the flower and lace so it's the right size in relationship to the car, where is the lace collar going to go anyway?
Also, are we doing any costuming of the pit crew or ourselves besides t-shirts?

Heh, I don't think the lace collar is going on the car anywhere. It'd look too clunky and awkward, IMHO. Lace around the license plate would be cool, though.

Oh! Speaking of the license plate--I have updated pictures! :)





All that's really missing is a tail and the vinyls now. :)

As far as costumes goes, I have a few sets of bunny ears (some of which came with tails!) to wear around the pits. I keep trying to talk the crew guy into going full-Playboy Bunny on us, but sadly, I've had no luck.

About shirts, though...Blayde FTW. My original idea was to keep things simple with a design that had the front and back of Fluffy Bunny (the Puffalump) with some text about the team. Sooooo...this, on a purple background at about boob level:

Front:


Back:


...then equi pointed out that it's a wide design (these were my boobs I had in mind after all when thinking of shirt desgins) and I thought "well, nuts, that's usually the spot on my back that's covered with hair anyway." So, maybe an update to match of Blayde's earlier design idea would work better on the back:


I really love the 'lump-and-crossbo--, er, um, crosscarrots feel of that one.

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

I agree wholeheartedly. I wish I lived closer so I could give some real help. I would love to be a part of it. :nod:

I Absolutely LOVE the crossed carrots, it's brilliant! Maybe a little more detail on the "lump" so it is easy to recognize that it's the back of the puffalump.

Consider the license plate(s) laced. You're right it would be pretty hard to do a"car sized" lace collar and certainly would affect aerodynamic performance, like we'll be going fast enough to worry about that :rolleyes: I'll scope out tail materials, maybe a tail on fire will help keep the car from being rear ended :lol:

What do you think it might take for the crew guy to go full Playboy Bunny?:wicked: I think it would be worth major style points Failing that, ears and tail would help.
