Cravat... thing 1 (Posted 30th August 2011)
Made two of these in different sizes, put one on top of the other, sew together, and voila!
Then I went and stuffed the finished product into a bag which messed up the pleats, so I'll put a finished photo here when I can be bothered to get the ironing board out and sort it out first. XD;
Cape 4 (Posted 30th August 2011)
SO SNUGGLY! /o/
(I incorporated a bit of ribbon in the collar so that this ties together in the middle. Also forgot to mention the gold straps I made to go around the fluffy "bobbles" along the bottom edge.)
Cape 3 (Posted 30th August 2011)
I supposed it should be a cloak not a cape, but anyway! One big piece of wadding, ready to be rolled up and inserted into the collar area!
(Also, I had one more photo of the progress of the shorts but it's disappeared. Ah well. But the shorts are done, slits and frilly black edge and everything!)
Cape 2 (Posted 6th June 2011)
The back design is felt and white fabric paint, satin stitched onto the cape. The cape is lined with red cotton which was bought for something else I ended up not making. The gold edge is leftover stuff from my Sigmund cosplay.
Satin stitching designs is very, very annoying. =_=
...This is turning out to be one big recycling project. I wish every cosplay can be like this, then I won't have such a large pile of leftover fabrics...
Cape 1 (Posted 6th June 2011)
Leftovers again! This time it's red cotton velvet from one of Storme's old cosplay, and velvety white ribbon from my David cosplay (I bought 2 rolls of the stuff in Hong Kong because it was really cheap. XD)
Shorts (Posted 5th June 2011)
I'm making this out of leftover fabric from my Flynn cosplay last year because I really like the texture of it. This is going to be dyed green, and then I'll cut slit into it and add the blue panels. I bought discounted dupion silk for this.
I've already made the lining using leftover stuff from my Zidane cosplay. The theory is that after I added the blue panels, I'll line it, and add wadding or whatever between the lining and the shorts to puff them up. I hope it'll work...
