Gadget Hackwrench from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers
Event(s): Katsucon 2018 | Wizard World Cleveland 2018 | Awesome Con 2018 | MegaCon 2018
For the details on the construction of the jumpsuit, please see the construction notes for Winry! The jumpsuit is the same one! Multi-purpose!
Aside from the jumpsuit and the wrench, everything else on Gadget is relatively simple. The ears are two layers of fabric with interfacing and wire in between, sewn onto a thin wire headband and the tail is a long tube, stuffed with Polyfill with a wire hanger inside for flexibility. It attaches with two hand sewn clasps. The goggles are a pair of plastic steampunk goggles, which I purchased from Amazon, spray painted and distressed.
The wrench is probably my favorite part and was a super last minute addition to my plans for Katsucon 2018. It's made from four sheets of EVA floormat foam with details made from standard craft foam. I made a pattern out of news paper, cute out two layers of it, carefulyl glued them together and used a dremel to smooth and shape the edges. For the Rescue Rangers logo and the wrench logo, which is just Gadget's last name, I made patterns in Photoshop, printed them out, and then cut them out of foam. The center piece is a poster tube, cut to size, with more craft foam wrapped around it for detail. Everything was hot glued into place, coated in wood glue, and then painted.
