Description
BECAUSE HE'S TOO MUCH OF A FAG FOR ME NOT TO COSPLAY HIM. <3

...Or that's the reasoning I gave my epic PH group a while ago >;D
Third PH cosplay, but he's likely to get done first to be worn at a con later this year. I already get the feeling this is a cosplay I'll love wearing over and over, so I'll also probably end up making several artwork versions of him, and possibly his Pandora uniform -- because it is TEH SEX.

As I said before, this is to go with my amazing PH group of win and...one of our PH phases, IDK <.< Shall have a FANTASTIC Liam to harass, a Vincent to rage at, and a Rufus to thwack for sure. Can't wait!

Edit September 2010: Was worn to Alcon 2010, and shall be worn again to October Expo 2010. And probably many more.

I am officially placing this cosplay as 'Complete', because other than modifying the boots a little and touching up the base of the shirt, everything is finished. And I am SO happy with it. More so than I think I have been with any other cosplay.

It was such a rush to finish everything before Alcon (I was still chopping up boots and begging clay and paint to dry on the night before/first morning of the con) but I managed. And the whole thing essentially survived the con, cane and all.

There will be photos up as soon as I get them from our awesome Vincent/Oz/photographer Getti. I absolutely /love/ being Break, and just want to thank my entire little group for helping so much to make that the case, and for supporting me through the making of this - every little fall and triumph. So to Getti, Metty-Panda, Emo-Tastic-Toaster and last but most definiteny not least x-Blade-x, thank you all SO much. <3

And to x-Blade-x - you deserve an extra special thank you for being my Mister Liam. For making me feel so /right/ in this cosplay, and for always giving me someone to flail at when needed. <3 And as I said, FOR BEING MY LIAM. *A*

I feel so honoured to cosplay this alongside you all, my group. Here's to wearing PH until our cosplays literally fall apart! ;D

I know this is gonna be SO epic whether you decide to make it all yourself or get it commissioned >8D SO EITHER IS GOOD!! <3 *spazzes over your awesome* though if you decide to make it, you could flail to the NORTH for cheap fabric? ;D (during DRRR faggotry if it occurs, perhaps? >8D)

Also, I feel you must know... that its guarenteed that every time you wear Break... LIAM WILL HAVE TO JOIN YOU! <333 (...just to keep you in check, of course >//> *cough*)
It should be noted that he doesnt appreciate the Emily-related comment above though T___T

...This news has made me (and Break) INCREDIBLY happy. <333 You do know you're not allowed to wear Liam anywhere without me, right? >PD *harasses...and sits on* xD BUT SHE LOVES YOU, MISTER LIAM. *flings Emily at and flees* xD <33333

Glad that you've worked through the problems on the coat too hun! (Urgh. Sewing pleather T__T) Ribbon colour... I dunno xD I think lilac might look nice... but I fail, so... *shrug* :'D lol

OMG MOAR BREAK!

It looks so amazing! I can't even guess where you started with that coat. It's all going to come together so wonderfully from the looks of it!

Facegrope = no. ¬¬ Creepy Hatter.

EEE! I also like the sound of lilac ;D Good luck with the pleather, (I fully intend to avoid sewing this for the entirety of my life) I'm sure you'll do it fantasticly even if it is FFFF to sew. Can't waaait to see it all!

Wooooow, the coat is looking AMAZING so far, dear faggle~!! <33
I have no idea what it's like to sew pleather, and judging by yours, Getti's and Blade's words, I may just avoid it.
But I can't wait to see it in it's entirety! It looks like it'll be so fragile, I'll be scared to glomp-squish you in it! ... though, when you do Break, I'll most likely do Rufus, so you're alright there. *glare from behind his fan*

Lilac sounds good to me, hun! GO FOR EET. BECAUSE YOU WILL LOOK EPIC IN IT. <333

Metty: I'M SO GLAD YOU APPROOOOOOVE~!! 8DD <33 Do if you can my faggle, it be a BIATCH that should be salted and burned!! But rofl! It shouldn't be THAT fragile (I mean it had better not be, since I'll be flinging myself at Liam all day >PD <3 lol~) SO DO SQUISH ME. ...Regardless of how UTTERLY cracky that will look <.< *readies cane* xD LILAC FTW THEN.

Thank you, so much, for letting me cosplay with you, alongside such an amazing cosplay - you'll punt me, but I really dont feel like I deserve it - I mean, look at you.

Journal

Final Bits and Pieces! (Sort Of.) (Posted 17th August 2010)

The coat is done. Completely, at last! 8'D (It could probably do with lining, but all of the hems are neat and I really don't have time, so it can wait until after Alcon at least). The harness was so very awkward to sort, but it's done at last. Just have to hope it's strong enough to hold everything together! *nervous-twitch*

The sleeves are also finished, and I have finally started work on the cane today! <3 Unfortunately, this version won't be openable - but once again, time restirctions apply - and at least I'll have /a/ cane at Alcon ='D (still planning on making a fully functioning one at some point!). So that will get worked on, along with the boots (once I order them <.<) and then it really is just the finishing touches on the shirt and the cravat. ^w^

I am /so/ excited for wearing him. *A* Just... It's extreme. <3
(Pictures will come soon...ish x'D)

The Countdown Begins! (Posted 10th August 2010)

So...one month until Alcon, and it's been...three months since I updated x'D. (Ignore the picture. Just wanted one there really.)

Progress is finally being made again, and I've booted myself to start sorting out all the fiddly bits and pieces that I have left to do. The main body of the white coat really just needs lining now, and I need to attach the harness (in a way that allows me to actually take the coat /off/ ='D). The sleeves are all but done too - just need some more white material to double the 'cuffs' (because I'm obsessed with accuracy x'D). Then there are a few other odds and ends, which shouldn't take too long. Doubt I'll make the bag for Alcon now, since in later chapters of the manga it's disappeared anyway. One less thing to do.

I'm still on the hunt for boots to modify, but work on the cane should be started later this week! 8'D I really cannot wait to get that done! Or the rest of him for that matter. Just really hoping it's all ready for Alcon... Since technically I need to finish another cosplay for then too <.< *screwed*.

Oh, and my wig needs a re-style. Which is utterly Liam's fault. That is all. ;D <3

Getting There! (Posted 11th May 2010)

As you can see from the picture, things have moved on a lot since last week 8D The shirt is all but finished (I just need to add a little more white on the front and another fastener at the top), and the coat is coming along nicely. I had some trouble with it to start with, as the shape of it defies all logic - but I've darted it at several points along the back, so though it isn't completely accurate it does flow more like it does in the manga. ^w^

Progress on the crazy-sleeves-of-doom is also going well *pokes picture* (that's the folded coat undernearh them btw x'D). I've just started on the pleather straps around them (sewing pleather = OTL) and should be able to get some ribbon for the edges of the sleeves and the coat some time this week (though I'm stuck on whether to use silver or light purple/lilac O.o Damn inconsistent references! Opinions anyone?)

On a random side-note, I'm SO glad I decided to make this myself. I'm already feeling so proud of this, even though none of it feels right yet without the wig ='D ...and despite the fact I'm very poor now x'D <3

Pinning Oneself in the Neck. [AKA Shirt Progress] (Posted 5th May 2010)

So...yeah. Definitely making all of this one myself now x'D

His undershirt is nearing completion! I found the PERFECT purple fabric, and have been working on it over the last...week? Less than that? I don't know, ask Liam. I'm no good with schedules ;D. I really do love it so far! Just got to fasten the front and then add the strips of white ^w^. Should be able to get some ribbon and cravat material this week, and see how my wallet's doing after that x'D *is poor now, after buying the wig - AT LAST*.

The collar was a complete pain to do. It's not quite as ruffled as I'd like (not that you can tell from the grainy ninja photo ;D) but I can at least breathe in it now. ='D I'm utterly IN LOVE with the sleeves though. I feel so perfectly evil in them - so considering the real thing will have the huge white ones over them too, I can't wait x'D.

Pictures are mainly just to show Liam that I /am/ working, see~? <3 ('Scuse the jeans, it's too cold for Break's pants x'D)

Ahlala~! Progress?! (Posted 28th April 2010)

So, I guess this means I HAVE decided to make this all myself x'D *face-palm-of-oh-boy-I'm-screwed-ness*

This afternoon I fished out an old pair of school trousers (lol) and modified them, and thus Break's pants are complete. They're actually really comfy to wear, and I feel like such a clown in them! Thus fitting, I suppose~ ;D

I've also begun material hunting - online at least - and intend to harass some fabric shops over the weekend to see what I can find in terms of Break. With any luck I'll be able to get started on his shirt within the next few weeks! I've also found some plain white boots that I'm going to order and modify completely (cutting up faux-leather. Oh the joys x'D) and an accurate method to affix the coat. Seriously, that thing is going to be SUCH a pain, I can tell ='D it DEFIES ALL LOGIC. *collapses*

My focus before May needs to stay mainly with Glen (though I don't have much left to do really for this stage of him) but Break shall be worked on every so often so that he can be all completed over Summer, along with the huge list of other cosplays that need doing x'D. *waves cheerily goodbye to my purse with Emily* <3

Emily Finished! 8D (Posted 19th April 2010)

She now has both bows and is all ready to go! She actually will stay on my shoulder even when I walk around, so attaching her isn't too much of a priority anymore ^w^. Damn I love her, the creepy adorable little thing! <3

As for the rest of Break, am in the process of finding him some boots I can modify -- and am in conversations with my Dad about his cane. Really can't wait to get started, but for now my focus has to go back to Glen (not that I really mind that ;D).

Emily Progress (Posted 18th April 2010)

So, one mad dash around the fabric shop (they didn't have what I was actually looking for x'D) and I get myself everything I need for Emily! She's the result of an afternoon and evening's work (so all in all about... five hours of today? *_*)

She still needs both of her bows - the pink one and the red ribbon to hold her hair back - but she sits nice and comfortably on my shoulder ^w^. Am going to find a way to attach her properly so I can walk around like that, but that can wait. I know her hair isn't completely accurate, but the wool was all I could find, and I think it adds to the creepy-ness of her ;D.

Probably won't be any more progress until summer!
