|Found the perfect wig, and though kind of expensive, I went for it because I'm only going to one, maybe two expos/conventions this year :) He's also, believe it or not, one of my dream cosplays so I may as well do it properly with no regrets, right?|
I will do *proper* Arthur one day too, homemade chainmail/armour and all :)
EDIT : I've switched from Duke Devlin to Arthur for October Expo :D I'm not sure how well done he'll be, but hey-ho X'D
EDIT (29/9/10) : boots have been bought (hope they come in time D:) and his claw/tooth necklace has been started. It needs a bit of sanding, gloss and paint (not to mention a string!), but it's gonna get there X'D
All I really need now is the materials for the coat and top! And his Pendragon ring~!
EDIT (3/10/10) : claw necklace is finished, all material has been ordered and my Merlin has sorted out the patterns for everything for me - MUCH LOVE, COLIN MORGAN AND CUMBERBATCH TO HER <3
EDIT (1/11/10) : so, completed it thanks to Jenni and Katie on the friday of expo. Thought I looked good in it until i just saw expo photos. Holycrap. I'm not putting any up, that's for sure 8'D

So I'm feeling a bit down about this cosplay right now. (Posted 21st October 2010)
Just spent the day dying my material, only to have the pieces come out different shades of brown each time. One's the shade i want - BROWN, one has a pink tinge and one has a yellow/green tinge. I bought another dye which is on the way, but if that doesn't work then I'm actually going to cry, I've spent so much on this coat trying to get it right and nothing has gone right yet :( if the fabric shop sent me the right shade of material in the first place, this wouldn't be happening :(
Am hoping I'll have more luck with my shirt tomorrow, but at the rate I'm going, I'll screw that up too.
Not only that, but my boots are a bit too small so they ruin my feet everytime I wear them.
Fml. This cosplay is going to be shit.
Little diddy update :3 (Posted 9th October 2010)
Dye has been bought for mah coat, so that will (hopefully) be sorted pretty quickly. My breeches have also arrived! They're pretty massive on me, but they'll hopefully look better when they're tucked into boots!
Just waiting on the boots to arrive now, and then buy a brown belt. And possibly blue contacts <3
DISASTEEEER ;A; (Posted 8th October 2010)
The material for Arthur came today, which is all well and good except -
I'm sure I'll work it out but for now, I continue to spack XD
Finally gotten started properly! (Posted 3rd October 2010)
Have had a lot of generous help from my Merlin this weekend, she measured me up and whipped up some patterns for the tunic and the coat which I am forever grateful for <3 I send her much Colin Morgan and CUUUUMBERBAAATCH for her troubles and for painting me a chibi Arthur ring & a Pendragon ring ;w;
Whilst she was doing that, I finished off the claw necklace which I'm pretty pleased with. Apart from the fact that I modelled it without looking at references, so the shape is wrong X'D if I have time, I might redo it since I still have a lot of brown thonging left ^^
Have now also ordered the material, so all that's left to buy is a belt and maybe some blue contacts :D srsly can't wait to get him doooooone <33333
