|Time Taken :||2 months on and off|
|White military style shirt with gold detail. Black waistcoat with gold edging/trim. Black jacket also with gold trim and detail, blue trousers, black boots with gold rims around tops, Black cloak and shoulder pads, will possibly be making the claw hand too, depending on how the rest of the costume goes.|
I've chosen to make this costume because i want to do something loosely halloween based for sunday at oct expo and don't want to do a bog standard vampire, although a burlesque style one would be cool, and i don't want to do a vampire knight one as they are done to death. Plus i loovee this character and have ever since i first watched this film in 2001.
I think the shoulder pads will be the hardest thing to make.
I am looking forward to the challenge of it though.
Update: The shoulder pads are coming along nicely, i'm using wonderflex and friendly plastic over half a papier mached balloon.
The cloak looks great, I've had to unpick the jacket and re-sew the lining for the arm as it stopped the jacket from falling how it should.
