Then I guess I will create one of those accounts. It really doesn't make sense as it is supposed to just be an img tag that loads from a url. The urls I posted are publicly available. Smile

It could be the length of the url itself. This board (phpbb2) does sometimes have issues parsing longer URL's.

So are you saying that imgur is the only supported platform? That doesn’t seem right.


No. I was just suggesting you create an account for whichever site supports photo storage and sharing. ( I use imgur now because photobucket now charges for photosharing). But it's your call if you prefer to use your fb links. 😉 sometimes those links have problems when shared on forums

So I am still making progress on this build. My family has completed not helped latch hooking, but dang it I am going to finish him!! Wink

I did do my first pour of foam for my feet. I decided that I am going to build every piece that I can. (My mask was Evil Chimp) so I sculpted toes, cast them in silicon (with a plastic shell) and put foam in the mold tonight. When I get back to the office tomorrow we will see how it came out.

Very excited. My toes came out. I used Smoothon Foam X. I put the first coat of paint on them Friday before leaving for CollectiveCon (I trooped my sandtrooper.) When I get back from DC on Saturday I will finish the paint and attach them to the stilts.


BTW if anyone needs toes, let me know. Smile

So my stilts are built and latched. I am attaching the toes next week. I also had a friend help and build the bandolier and bag. I am making good progress on latching, but worried about the transition on the arms.

So progress. The body is "done".



The shirt is too long, so when I finish the pants I am going to cut about 2 inches off the shirt bottom so the pants pattern will show.

The bandolier in this shot did not have the boxes tightened.



Any feedback?

Thanks
Kevin

Finished the front and side of one leg. The silver/grey is mostly on the side, contrary to how it hangs on this pipe set up. <grin>
