|Time Taken :||15 hours|
|This an outfit that I decided to do after my 'Chamber Of Secrets' one is getting to big. I had the shirt, trousers and shoes already so it made sense to go for it. |
So far the waistcoat has been made out of a gorgeous patterned suedette that proved tough to find.
This is being premiered at Magna Movie Day in Rotherham.

Nearly ready for LFCC (Posted 3rd August 2011)
Robe is nearly complete. Ended up with the fur being just a bit too wide so will be reducing that down.
I'll have to wait until after the event to complete the jacket and shirt as I had other commitments that I've had to do. Luckily I have a great jacket and shirt that will work until I get the correct ones sorted (which I'll do for a photo shoot after LFCC 2011).
New robes (Posted 3rd August 2011)
Finally getting around to making the correct robes for this costume. I've been using the 'Chamber of Secrets' robes when ever I have worn this up to now. I thought this would be a good chance to finally make them.
Started to cut out the pattern when I noticed that I didn't have quite enough of the really lush black velvet that I wanted to use so I'll have to switch to the less poncy cotton based fabrics. Lucius would disprove XD.
Magna Movie Day (Posted 3rd August 2011)
I was asked to be a costumed character for Magna Movie Day in Rotherham. I was originally meant to do Prince Nuada but failing health meant I needed an easier costume to get into. Remembering that I was working on this I decided that it was perfect as a replacement.
(pictured is when I wore it to Collectormaina)
I won't have time to complete the correct robes and jacket so I will be wearing the 'Chamber of Secrets' robe and jacket.
Waistcoat. (Posted 3rd August 2011)
For the waistcoat I did fully line it to make sure it would sit right and give it good weight to hang right. Its longer at the front than at the back to allow access to my trouser pockets.
Waistcoat and broach (Posted 3rd August 2011)
Have completed both waistcoat and broach. Both have turned out well. The broach I won't be able to photograph as my camera is a bit crap.
The waistcoat I love as I made it in a lovely jaquard fabric that has a subtle gothic design running through it. I couldn't match the snake print from the actually one without it looking too cheesy. So decided to go with the gothic route. I think it turned out will. Pics to come soon.
