Crap! I sewed on all 298 ping pong balls but I still need more. Damn.
My sister is now running around town buying up ping pong balls. I need to get more spray paint. How could my math be so wrong? The body ended up being deeper than I intended once the pieces were sewn together. I sewed the balls on a little closer together than I calculated on, they just looked so cool like that. They've started calling it the $500 dollar costume. They're joking. But it will definitely hit the $200 dollar mark once we get enough balls.
Tonight I will attempt to cut and paint the center ingredients for the California roll. Keep your fingers crossed that nothing too difficult crops up during that phase.
