-Commision for my little cousin-

My little cousin wanted a costume for World Book Day [Thursday 6th March] and well he left it REALLY late to tell me! He absolutely LOVES Naruto so he wanted an Akatsuki coat... so I said I'd make him one... He must be the luckiest boy in the world as I didn't have homework the day I was making it!

Technically it's not actually complete as I wanted to add another layer to the inside of the coat red... but erm... I was lazy myself by watching TV for a few hours eheh heh xD; So technically I made most of it within an hour haha! xD [T'was watching anime on Jetix ^_^;;]

I wish I had more time... then at least the coat could look better and more professionally made! Ah well... it's only my little cousin ahahah! XD

Coat was basically made from eye... No pattern or anything I just cut the fabric sew them together and voila xD. I remembered how I made my Bunny Sakura so yeah it was a pretty simple task... or I had to do as lengthen it xP. I used a raincoat of his as a reference though as I forgot to bring in my tapemeasure so measure him d'oh! >_<; So yeah HOPEFULLY it'll fit! I mean if it manages to fit me then I'm sure it'll fit him haha! [His coat fitted me fine so I just measured myself and took away a few cm around the bits that were tight around me xD]. Then the clouds were hand sewn on and lined with 3D fabric paint... because it feels nicer haha XD [Looks good too xP]. I was considering just gluing the clouds on due to laziness... but meh I decided it only takes 30mins so I just did it whilst watching Bobobo XDDD

The only bit that I DID double layer was the collar... I wanted to make it stiff xD... Well technically it's like triple layered as there's medium interfacing inside the black and red polycotton xP *sniffles* It would have looked so much more accurate and cooler with black and red too ;o; I blame TV >_>;;
