Journal

fin... (Posted 16th October 2008)

superglue and Adam = bad things...

i superglued my scissors to my hands and my mouse they are now off :/

everything is finished i just need to tidy up the edges and style the wig better

yatta (Posted 13th October 2008)

gloves and arms are fully complete now

rapping things up (Posted 12th October 2008)

chest is done, gonna put the put the poppers on it tomorrow and and make it look pretty. wig works.

main area's to fix... need to make a belt... hmm wtf dunno how that will pan out but ive got a few idea's involving my boring plain black belt and glue.

trousers need doing. i know what i have to do but im still trying to get some navy blue trousers first .

shoes.. need polishing.
need to find a random cat with an eye patch to bite me :s
was thinking about making a microphone thing that suzaku uses the red 1.

and after that see howit looks and tweak things

A well thourght out plan (Posted 5th October 2008)

everything seems to be falling into place. I found my old pack house overalls in my draws... never going back there again and its navy blue snip snip there`s my shirt.

The back flaps are done just need sewing on

The white bits for the back flaps to go on are cut out just need sewing on. hmm only things left are the sleeves belt gold trimming around the under shirt and the center part.

Oh trousers i`m looking for navy blue ones if possible but if i cant find any mums gona make us a pair then i can just sew on the bits i need.

The Hood (Posted 2nd October 2008)

Is finished. After ball aching agony trying to get the wire to work and failing then trying to get the "stiffening" (i know what ur thinking) to work and then making its shape stay and ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Its complete and all thats left is to at the green gems on the back xD on to the next stage

Acessorys (Posted 28th September 2008)

The gems have been ordered for the cape and im quite pleased with the ones ive ordered.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=200136734427&Catego...

The gloves are ordered for me too add the eyes too

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=330272460319&Catego...

Ive bid on a wig too 5 hours remaining and its fairly decent

Completing the cape (Posted 26th September 2008)

Shoulders, flaps outlining are almost finished. Only a few small jobs to finish.
To do list:

1.(Find big red buttons for all flaps) Sew on buttons.
2. Sew on hood and shape with garden wire ( its only pinned).
3. Sew border around the hood and diamond shape.
4. Cut out collar wings and sew them on.
5. finish off the central neck plate and Velcro onto either side.
6. Line the under cape and over cape with light blue also red bit needs extending about 15cms

UPDATE (Posted 17th September 2008)

okay small changes to the shoulders, ive got some cushion foam i can use XD and sew fabric around, i might also make the red gem like shapes with those. Started to do the yellowy/gold border round the edge

progress update (Posted 15th September 2008)

Cape is about 60% done the maroon colored part is ready. The black flappy part just needs the flaps cutting out properly and the gold parts sewing to it. Ive decided to use shoulder pads for either side of the cape and another shoulder pad for the connecting part of the cape O.o On a whole progress is going quite fast

getting started (Posted 14th September 2008)

ive decided for the brown shoulder things im gona use tights yes if thats how there spelled :p I bhave some dark gold material now ive found from some ugley pillow cases only 50p each so cant complain gona start today

All Hail Emperor Lelouch (Posted 13th September 2008)

After the last episode of code geass i decided this costume looking F***ing sweet and that it would be really hard to do. So after talking with nana who has decided to do emperor lelouch im gona give this ago. I have bought material and im starting to work out the outline of the undercoat
