Waistcoat, finished (Posted 27th November 2008)
Finnaly finished sewing all of the gold trim and frogs onto the waistcoat last night. Luckily despite it being gone midnight I somehow managed to get all of the frogs on straight and the waistcoat front lining up correctely when worn \o/
Nearly there (Posted 26th November 2008)
Drac continues to progress nicely. My riding boots arrived and have had suitable detailing added, and I've got my shirt, wig and teath too.
Once there finished I just need to make the rope and clasp for the cloak and shave me beard to shape.
Trimings (Posted 19th November 2008)
Well I've got a flauncy shirt and the boots should be coming today or tomorrow :)
I've also found some nice lace edging and fasteners so I'm cutting these to the patterns I want and painting them gold for the waistcoat trim. Also have a big red 'eye' to serve as the base of his gem, need to make a fitting for that though.
Made the red waist sash last night too, same red satin as the cloak.
Boots (Posted 17th November 2008)
Well I had to give up on the heeled ladyboots, best I could find in bigfoot size where thigh high and 90 quid with postage :(
Other than that progress is good. Dracs satin cloak is basicaly done, it's ace and big enough to hide a small american state in! His jacket is also finished and I spent the weekend making his waistcoat, though I now need to work out how to do the gold detailing.
Pics to follow :)

Totally forgot to buy a chep bat at halloween though and I still have to figure out how I'm going to do the gold lace work on the waistcoat.
