Description
Well this is my first attempt at a Cosplay, so I learned to sew and dye clothes. I started making it a while back, and I gained some weight since then, so it the poppers where prone to coming undone if I ate a big enough lunch =D

I'm going to 'upgrade' it as such - add another popper for the jacket, move the 'clasps' to a more 'correct' position, and have them attach via a popper as well rather then using dodgy safety pins. Also, the folded over collar I need to attach a bit better. Not 100% sure how I will do that. May also get a trenchcoat for the complete 'I'm in your base, killing your doods' experience.

Overall it was a good experiment I think, people recognised me so I was happy =D

UPDATE: Five years later. Who says killing your doods anymore? Will attempt to fix problems I laid out all that time ago. No promises though, this is a rush job
