Time is running oooooouuuuutttttttt (insert muse warble) (Posted 14th October 2009)

Right what with 2 days to go im not looking too bad atm. All that is left is to trim the bloody thing in gold, sew in the button holes, sew on the buttons and then trim the top and complete the helmet...Yeah i better crack on really!

Fuck there is a lot to do! (Posted 7th October 2009)

Ok so there are roughly oh... 9 days to do this in. Fuck im buggered. Well at least at this stage ive cut out everything and im ready to start sewing the darts and pleats... you know what everyone keeps telling me that a pattern is a stark contrast in ease then doing it from scratch without a pattern. yeah the moral of the story is 'ignorance is bliss' but then with the amount of work there is so much to be done in comparison to what i usually have to do and its nice to finally have something to come home to when i finish work.

The aim here is competition standard. I want this to be THAT good. Im in awe of everyone's cosplays and i would love to get to that stage with mine and i figure if i can just stick with it and keep at making things with a lot more care and time taken then i can just about get there! So far that's buggered given my time frame and lack there of in effort! I said i'd get this done by a certain couple's wedding and i damn well am! Watch this space!
