|So I fancied a costume with slightly more coverage :P I've bought one of the fancy dress shop costumes as a base and I'm currently in the process of tweaking and improving upon it - I'm okay enough with sewing to tweak things but not good enough yet to sew something like this from scratch!|

Tweak number 3... (Posted 19th August 2011)
Is getting rid of the tie on the head/hat/mask/thingy. It's too long and it has a habit of dangling down in front so I'm going to replace it with a button or presstud :) then all that's left is sewing the boot covers to the suit and I'm done!
Next tweak is... (Posted 18th August 2011)
Fixing the collar. Gosh that thing looks so sad and flimsy. My plan is to get some white velvet-y fabric and use the provided collar as a base. I'll cover that with the new fabric and possibly add some pom-poms or similar for a bit of interest. I'll attach either a presstud or a nice white ribbon to tie it with. And maybe I'll chop some of the collar off entirely - my neck is apparently very scrawny
