|Time Taken :||4 hours|
|I found the video for this way back at the start of the year and became a bit obssed and made plans with Juliette to one day do Rin and Len, even though i wanted to do meiko also but i don't think i'm ready to make armour yet ^^' and i love Lens coat so he was my second choice, she then planned to do Rin in the summer but i wasn't sure i'd have time to make it due to prior arrangements. However i recently reshuffled plans for the summer and october and then Fiona made a DA journal asking is anyone wanted to do a synchronicity group in october/kitacon and i just couldn't help myself and jumped on board XD|
I've been staring at the designs for a good while now and i've worked out i don't actually have a stupid amount to do XD;; I've got white trousers (though if we're going in the masqurade i'll make a pair), i've got the sleeveless white turtle neck from mitsuki which i can attach the black onto, i've got an old pair of boots i can use and i've got the pattern i used for takanari i can use for the coat which means all i've really gotta do is make the coat, gloves, belts, necklace and wig...ok thats still a bit to do but much less than i thought XD;;;
EDIT: Ok things changed and i decided just to make everything including the trousers, top and sword.
4.5 meters of gold ribbon - £2.70
Yellow pletaher for the belt/armlet - Free, left overs from the lovely wiishmaker ;D
Wig - Will be borrowing wiishmakers (unless i decide to get my own)
Gluegun (WHY DID I NOT ALREADY HAVE ONE??) - £15
5 meters black cotton - £14.50
2 meters white tshirting - £5.00

Boots completly done XD (Posted 10th June 2010)
Ribbon has been added.
...2 meters of ribbon for each lace...Gonna need some more ribbon XD;
Gloves (Posted 8th June 2010)
Gloves are all finished. Its a pair of cheap long back gloves i got of ebay i chopped the ends off and sealed them up with clear nailvanish, next i did the ribbon around the top and then the little bit around the fingers. Because the gloves stretch i had to put them on while gluing and dear god it was hot D8
Also after rewatching the video i noticed that the laceup bit at the front of his boots our yellow ribbon so i need to go back to hobby craft and get some more ribbon for that :)
Boots are done ;D (Posted 6th June 2010)
Anyone recognise these shoes? lol
Belt Progress + Armlet (Posted 5th June 2010)
As i said jess (wiishmaker) had a few scraps of leftover yellow pleather she used to make her defult len outfit which she kindly let me have so i could make the belt and armlet.
The armlet is all done i just hot glued it all together tbh but i worked out rather well however i did burn my finger D8
...As you can tell my revision is clearly going very well OWO;;;;;;
Necklaces (Posted 5th June 2010)
I couldn't sleep last night and was feeling artsy so i started on the necklaces and finished them off this afternoon.
