PVC stays with the bondage fanatics (Posted 2nd March 2010)
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!
I HATE BODY SUITS! (Posted 21st February 2010)
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!
Ok so nearly there! (Posted 24th January 2010)
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
Fabric woes (Posted 15th January 2010)
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!
And so it begins (Posted 16th November 2009)
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!
