|Time Taken :||1 week|
|I am still faintly impressed that I managed to handsew the coat and undertop for this in a week. Clearly, I had too much time on my hands.|
I love Ace a lot but this costume is so damn uncomfortable to wear and far too warm with it's multiple layers so I sold it on. I may cosplay him again one day, but if so I'll probably do his simpler ball outfit instead. Or give Boris a try as I really wanted to cosplay him too.
Wore in a group masquerade at Kitacon III
undertop done (Posted 16th February 2012)
so completed the undertop today, the bias binding took quite a while to sew on. Not totally happy wit the shape as the collar is a bit dodgy and the waist should probably have been brought in a but but the coat should hide it. also bought the paints to alter the sword
undertop almost complete (Posted 8th February 2012)
over last week or so, made the undertop base. Just need to attach the zip and put on the front panel and bias binding and that's complete. Also sewing up the front of the coat so that it's more or less acurrate and will put buttons on soon. Mostly just customisation details to sort on the coat now
tis one piece (Posted 27th January 2012)
adjusted the waist so it fit better and then finished sewing it all together. Lined and sew the sleeves into the coat too. Next is adjusting the front so it's right and the collar and then it's just customisation.
progress (Posted 22nd January 2012)
lined and sewn the main body of the coat, shoulders and sides. still need to sort the bottom and the front is deliberately over large atm as iv got to cross it over. reckon iv messed up with the collar but will prob add that on seperately
