Costume Information

Description
I suppose really it should be Privateer? But Pirate is much more fun to say. 8D

I wanted to do this for a long time, I have a massive list of England costumes I want to do but this one won because I had a desire to make something a bit more pretty and ambitious.

The coat for this was HELL. X.X I had every problem you could think of while making it...but I pushed through and i'm pretty happy with the result but of course I notice all the little faults. :P However I am happy with the flouncy shirt XD I also blinged it up with the jabot and all the belts. 8D The boots were annoying because I couldn't get the same colour fabric anywhere...but I still think they work...and I had a ton of fun blinging up the hat as well. XD

Basically a ton of work went into this and i'm really happy so many people seemed to like the result! *_*

Shirt Complete (Posted 18th March 2011)

Ugh I hate making shirts. Such a boring progress. The upsetting thing about this shirt is that the sleeves won't even be seen beneath the coat...must get photos with the coat off! XD

Orginally didn't want to use lace on it but I ran out of the shirt fabric 8'D

Glad this is done now anyway!

Piiiiiiiiimp hat. (Posted 22nd February 2011)

I blinged this baby up today. 8'D Combo of feathers and fake jewels and beads and gold trim ~

Fabric ~ (Posted 8th February 2011)

I went back and forth over this combo but it's gotten to the stage where it's too late to change my mind so I think i'm finally okay with it.

Just a teasy shot of the coat. XP
