I love Gurren Lagann *_* By the end of the first episode, I had decided that I wanted to cosplay as Simon... by the end of the series this hadn't changed one bit!

UPDATE 21/Mar/08
Listened to the first 11 episodes of Gurren Lagann while working on the jacket. When I was ripping the collar off of the jacket (the red lines hadn't matched up perfectly), I accidentally ripped the front panel of the jacket O_O Thank god I'm planning on lining the front of the jacket, because that meant I had an extra front panel kicking around.

UPDATE 22/Mar/08
Listened through episodes 12-23 today whilst working on the jacket.

UPDATE 23/Mar/08
Finished listening to the series while I finished the cuffs on my sleeves! Now all I have to do is the emblem on the back. Not sure if I'm going to draw it on myself, cut out material and make it a patch or use an iron-on transfer...
