Journal

Expo (Posted 30th May 2010)

Finally finished more or less, had to pull an all nighter and finish wrist bands in the car on the way to expo to be ready on time. There's a few bits that need adding or changing, I'm really picky like that but will hopefully be finished for next event. Also used it for first expo masquerade in expert category. Mine and Zoro's props (Tanuki Otaku) stayed in place ALL day, and chose centre stage to fall off......typical.

The Waistcoat Finer Details (Part 2) (Posted 16th May 2010)

This weekend I spent many hours sticking on the gold design to the black straps,and then sewing the black straps to the corners on the waist coat. I also sewed poppers on to the ends so i could get in and out, fish hooks = disaster :) I also made my gold buttons by cutting in half polystyrene balls and carefully sticking gold lycra over them with copydex and then gluing them in place beside the straps. This took forever! Also, the gold chains have been partially sewn in place, and the gold collar has been cut, painted and pinned. I'm getting there slowly :) (Picture update this week sometime)

Waist Coat Finer Details - Part 1 (Posted 6th May 2010)

This weekend I managed to get alot of the waistcoat detail done. The sides, straps and gold corners and buttons are now pretty much made, just needs sewing/sticking on.

Trousers (Posted 24th April 2010)

Using blue jersey lycra and a pair of jeans, I got my measurements and cut out four different pieces of material, so I ended up with two front legs and two back legs. I sewed them together with an overlocker. I then handsewn white fur/fluff onto the bottoms which took hours, longer than anthing else because it was handsewn and I was being a perfectionist :) (Also Check out photos page as image didn't load again grr)

The hat (Posted 24th April 2010)

I bought a cheap straw hat from Primark, ripped off the black ribbon, coloured it all in with a yellow sharpie marker, and will be attaching a gold cord and red band.

Making the waistcoat (Part One) (Posted 24th April 2010)

I drew around a waistcoat to get a rough idea of shape and measurements and cut out a back and two front pieces out of red cotton, two black side pieces out of black cotton, and a collar, one side red, one side black. I have also cut out two red side piece, in which two black straps will be attached. Everything has been sewn together with either a sewing machine or an overlocker. Gold lycra was also sewn onto the edges. The Back has been cut shorter. There's still quite a bit left to do, but it's getting there :) (Umm Picture failed to load, see waistcoat part 1/2 in photos)
