Costume Information

Description
...Because he's absolutely adorable and tragic and SEXY.

To go with my wonderful Pandora Hearts group <3.

I was actually really torn between Break and Gil, but am going to start with Gil thanks to some awesome subtext courtesy of my Oz ;D. Probably won't get this sorted until next year, but I really can't wait since I'm IN LOVE with the manga!

Several other PH cosplays planned too, but GILLY COMES FIRST. <3

Edit 07/09/10: Officially Ready for Alcon.

Will update this when I'm less flopped, but everything I was hoping to have ready is now done. He's not 'complete' yet, and there are a few things missing - but overall I'm actually really happy with what I've got done, and cannot wait to wear Gilly with my epic group! 8'D

Running Out of Time!! *flustered-panic* (Posted 4th September 2010)

Okay, so... Alcon is... Very damn close anyway. I really /really/ was panicking with the thought that I wouldn't be able to get this done (and that panic is still there somewhat.. ='D *hides from the flying boots that will come from my group*). But after a great few days of sewing with my dear Elliot (who was SO helpful - so don't you dare say you weren't, or Gil will cry. On you. HAH.) and a full day of sewing today, things are actually starting to get somewhere at last. 8'D

The main body of the coat, plus crazy-cuffs, is essentially done. That also includes lapels and the collar - both of which I LOVE (and again, many thanks to Elly!x-Blade-x for helping with the lapels <3). The thing just needs lining now, and then I can sort out the belts and do what I can about his shirt... Might just have to edit a normal one for now, but we'll see.

It's unlikely that all of the tiny details will be ready in time, but at least I should be able to /wear/ some semblance of Gilly to Alcon now, together with my brilliant little group. <3 Pics may come before Alcon... Maybe. >.>

Getting Started (Posted 14th July 2010)

As I said in the Info, I've officially started work on his coat ='D. The material I bought is just /perfect/ (if pricey *pokes weeping wallet*) and I've essentialy sorted out the main 'body' of the coat already. It's a bit rough in places, and shaping it was a bit of a pain - since the shape of this thing, and all PH outfits for that matter &lt;.&lt;, defy the laws of physics ¬_¬. But I've got something sorted, and just need to sew in the interfacing on the 'skirt' part of the coat before I move on. 8'D

Should start work later today on the sleeves too, and then should be able to take some progress shots. ^w^ I really do think it's going to be the details that get me on this - the more I look at references the more I think this is going to be a royal pain soon x'D.

Really hoping to get this finished for Alcon, but we'll see how things go. SOME version of Gil will be making an appearance - just depends which one. ;D

(Might try doing another wig/makeup test soon too, now I've reworked the wig a little ='D)
