2nd March 2010: PVC stays with the bondage fanatics Well after having a BUTT-LOAD of fun trying to make a body suit (which is still NOT done yet) i have made progress with the puffer jacket. It isn't strictly colour correct since i used PVC which to my mind was the right thing to do. It gives the costume the right feel and generally works better when you do something along these lines.
That said i fucking hate using PVC. I abhor using the stuff since every experience i have with it has left me feeling dissatisified with the thing i've made. Although this may be the one costume i actually have love of PVC for. Progress pics will be up soon but i have to lament a bit on how good it is actually looking and kinda inflate my ego a bit at how much better my cosplays are getting. Practice does make bloody perfect!
All things aside i should be on course for having all 4 cosplays done for kita and this will be done buy friday at the latest since the Puffer jacket thing is nearly done i can quickly knock up a body suit and then the arse pockets! I WILL have this done by friday. This is then my last journal entry before completion! I promise you that!
NB if it isn't stfu i got sidetracked by shiny things! XD
21st February 2010: I HATE BODY SUITS! Ok i officially hate body suits and this frigging costume! Not only have i GOT to redo the body suit for a 4th time! (GAH!) I've got to unpick the collar on the puffer gillet since the bias binding i was gunna use looks gash when its on. So in-effect i'm set back a good week or so on a costume that was supposed to take 2 weeks-not impressed!
I gave up dying shit since it NEVER WORKS! I am never doing it again because i go blue, the kitchen floor goes blue but the frigging ballsy shite fabric does not. So i went out and bought some darkish blue fabric when i had cash (what i should have done in january *raaaaaage*) and am about to attempt it one last time.
I made a red one recently as a test and it seems to fit well-the crotch is actually set right and the collar is good. So the only thing i really need to do now is actually cut shit out and go from there. I'm not gunna bias bind the edges on this simply because i haven't the time or energy. I'll hem it and be done. The onto the other costumes i need to make before kita!
24th January 2010: Ok so nearly there! Wow so the dying went...ok i had blue hands for a few days since i neglected to buy any gloves. That was fun to explain after i got back to work! I have the last remnants of the costume to sew together and then it's gunna look the dogs-well this is the hope XD
15th January 2010: Fabric woes Ok so i was meant to wear this for a brisol clubnight then re-use at kitacon but due to unforeseen circumstances and one superfluous organ removal later i'm starting it.
Initially i bout the wrong colour fabric for this and have had numerous attempts at dying it each failing but making it slightly darker. So today i've cut out what i've needed instead of trying to dye all 5 metres of fabric at once and am gunna give it a go again! Wish me luck!
16th November 2009: And so it begins Ok so i felt a bit put out when i realised the other cosplay i'd planned to use for new years probably won't look as good or have the right impact i want for when i was going to do it, so it is still in the process of being done i'm just shunting leeron to the front burner so i can finally dye my hair and get that outta the way!

I'm impressed by your puffer jacket, they are not easy to sew neatly.
