|Time Taken :||15 hours (But then again, that's time spent researching, buying, hair-spraying etc. Not the gaps in between when I'm doing work)|

It looks like I'll finish this in time for London MCM Expo October 2011. EDIT: 18 Sep 2011 - I have finished this in time with over a month until Expo!

Went to Expo! (Posted 30th October 2011)

Button done! (Posted 10th August 2011)
Shoes have arrived! (Posted 9th August 2011)
Buttons and braces. (Posted 6th August 2011)
It's getting hard... (Posted 25th July 2011)
Small update. (Posted 19th July 2011)
Nearly done! (Posted 12th July 2011)
Bad thing is I have to wear a belt. They're too big... ugh. I'll just hide it under my jumper (sssshhh! ;P).
The hair spray and button will be easy. The braces will be medium difficulty to get and the shoes will be... hard. Wow. Easy, medium, hard.
Leave a comment if you know where to get the braces or shorts!
Everything's changing... (Posted 9th July 2011)
However, why do companies have to be constantly changing their stock? Honestly, you find one thing you like and when you go to buy it, it's gone!
Oh well, I have until October to get everything ready.
Concentrate on top of the costume. (Posted 26th June 2011)
Got the bag! (Posted 25th June 2011)
A trip to town! (Posted 16th June 2011)
Well, my blue jumper has turned up at ASDA, I just need to collect it. I shall do so on Saturday.
Jumper almost complete! (Posted 11th June 2011)
The title explains this journal entry well...
Yes, I have nearly finished the blue jumper section of this cosplay. Guess where from? ASDA! If anyone else is doing a Luke cosplay, go to the ASDA site now and type 'Blue Soft Touch Knitted Jumper' for a great, cheap (£4!) jumper.
I've almost nearly perfected my Luke Triton accent.
I have added 'red button' to my to-do list.
Back to Luke! (Posted 9th June 2011)
I haven't been updating for a while (school and everything) and as you could've guessed, I've stopped this cosplay.
No more. I'm back. I will be concentrating on this cosplay now.
I will try to wear this at MCM Expo October 2011.
I'll confirm when I've finished.
Caps and jumpers. (Posted 19th February 2011)
I've recently been looking at blue jumpers and blue baseball caps.
It has begun... (Posted 3rd February 2011)
I have two items off the to-do list so far and I'm aiming to get about three more by the end of the month.
It's a Luke in progress! (Posted 1st February 2011)
