B is for… Bigfoot

Or in this case Smallfoot!

Due for release onto the big screen in the coming week is Smallfoot, where a Yeti named Migo, voiced by Channing Tatum, rattles his community when he discovers something that he didn’t know existed – a human! This is a new animation from the Warner Animation Group and also features the voices of the magnificent Danny Devito and the joyful James Corden.

Is there a Bombshell Bigfoot?

There is no doubt that I am watching this movie, but it did raise the question on if there is a Bombshell Bigfoot out there. So off I went, again, to trusty ol google and started my hunt for the booby Bigfoot. I was not let down, there are some good choices out there for a saucy Sasquatch, and the best results came from searching Yeti Girl and the features from Monster Girl Encyclopedia.

But my heart was taken when I saw a piece by Chad Rocco, with her cheeky tongue out and the genius pumpkin snowballs, which are now known to me as snowkins, and I knew she was the one!

Say Hello to Betty the Yeti!

I started off by making the snowkins, I did this by building up white fondant around a polystyrene ball on both of the larger balls. For the final snowkin on top I just used a small round of fondant. pumpkin snowballs finishedI placed a 16 gauge wire through all three, and then marked out the facial features using a ball tool ,and the end of my cerart smoother.

I finished off the snowkins by dry dusting them with a variety of silvers and blues until I built up the colors I wanted.

As a final touch I used two chocolate, blue balls that I received in one of my cake bags, and placed them in the largest snowkins eyes.

I was really happy with how they came out.

 

I then moved onto my version of Betty herself, as you can see in the above picture, I used a 16 gauge wire and shaped it to fit across her hips and down both legs. I also added a single 16 gauge wire through her torso, and into her head, and separate pieces for her arms and hands. chest is on

I used Sugar Clay by Sugar Street Studios, for the whole of the white sections of Betty, and weighed out each section to ensure consistency, as follows:

  • Lower Legs – 18 grams each
  • Upper Legs – 18 grams each
  • Hips & Butt – 50 grams
  • Chest – 30 grams
  • Bust – 10 grams each
  • Arms – 16 grams each – top & lower
  • Head – 25 grams total – wrapped around a small polystyrene egg.

For the hands and feet I used Massa Ticino in pitch black ,and painted a little lilac shimmer on her nails.

  • Hands – 16 grams each
  • Feet – 20 grams each

I finished by placing the snowkins and Betty the Yeti, onto a cylinder of polystyrene, cut in half lengthwise, which was covered in Beau white modelling chocolate and some sugar balls.

Overall I am happy with what i have achieved today, unfortunately her little poking out tongue is not so obvious in the pics, but it was a great piece to practice on, so a thumbs up overall 🙂

As always, lets round this off with a couple of questions!

  1. Does the Bigfoot / Sasquatch / Yeti exist?
  2. What is your favourite Danny Devito character to date?
