Falling apart (Posted 31st October 2011)

Oh got to love my costume work. On the day the costume looked nice until it started to fall apart... My luck the middle finger of the glove fell apart after I removed a loose thread and the green ribbon on the boot covers started to fray and fall off.

But in the end I never got to wear it for long since I was to hot and expo isn't as much fun anymore( not sure if it was because I went with my boyfriend or that it was too hot and to many people) other then that the day went well and maybe I'll fix lunatic up a bit an wear it again some where else.

All done ( with a brilliant wig) (Posted 14th October 2011)

I love this wig! so much! I ordered it on Ebay expecting it to get to mine just before expo but it got here IN 2 DAYS FROM CHINA!! Oh I'm so happy now its all done I just have to get the 3 hair clips for the wig and some make up items and I'm done :D

Complete (Posted 3rd October 2011)

Costume is now complete but still need to get wig ( found the perfect one a while ago but have wait due to money)

Sewing Machine is dead for now (Posted 8th September 2011)

Trust my luck, finished doing a bit of sewing on the boot covers then *bang* sewing machine hits something and the needle bends. So no sewing for now except for hand sewing the top.... wish I could finish the boot covers.

Looking good (Posted 31st August 2011)

After re-doing the skirt since it was to small, I have had poor mum help with the top as well. ( Thank you mum for hand sewing the blue on :D ) one the blue is on I will add the grey as well and hide the sems with the green ribbon. the cloak is still not done will sew the bottom half of the lining on so it connects to the top half. Also the black details on the collar have to added as well by hand.

Still a lot of work to do but I'm just glad its comming along now.

Screaming matches with the cloak (Posted 23rd August 2011)

...yeah, made a huge mistake by trying to sew the lining and its ruined the cloak had to unpin it and do it again.... its fine now sew one piece to the cloar and a new piece to the main cloak like how I made it with teh white fabric outside. LOng story short it will take longer but look nicer.( no image since its a mess at the moment.

Back from holiday and more work (Posted 18th August 2011)

Finally back and working on the cloak again since its still not finished and I have yet to work on the main suit since I haven't bought my black zentai suit that will be the template for the body. I've sown on the clip part to hold the cloak in place at the front and have sown (some) of the green lines since the sewing machine did not like the collar due to the foam implant holding it up. :(

cloak part two (Posted 27th July 2011)

Woops... I have now sorted out the collar so its stays up but I have realised that the green lines are in the wrong place comapred to the picture...( only I could have done that) I might add a line since I can't take the green off since its hiding the seam between the collar and the long cloak. ( the zig zag bit isn't sew on properly yet but the line around the cloak is and thats the one hiding the seam)

The two lines show where I might put the other line so itlooks a bit better.

cloak test (Posted 20th July 2011)

BAH!!! the collar is a pain will have it starched so it will stay in shape a bit more when on. The inside of the cloak will be lined black like the orginal lunatic design but the outside of the claok will be the same as the ref picture.
