TRAIN and small bits and bobs (Posted 25th January 2012)
Did a test shot, and I'm happy with how its coming out, theres a minor detail on the jacket to complete and also slight modification to the belt to do, still got to sort the Rifle out... Pretty much complete now ... Roll on Kitacon
(Small icon picture just to show roughly how it will look)
Red Red everywhere (Posted 14th December 2011)
Painting these boots hasd been a full day job O.o drew roughly where I wanted the flames and then its been one coat after another after another to make sure they look even and flame like... Cut the buckle off the tops of the boots then going to use one of the buckles to place on the strap as it's perfect :)
Only thing let to get on with is the jacket when my sewing machine decides to come back from it's holiday ^^, A few mods on the shorts need to be done. Dad has had a look at the gun and wll be helping after christmas as he's going to help make a guitar too :3
Early Christmas (Posted 29th November 2011)
I havent got much to do on this costume now :3... As I got a new job I treated myself to the thigh high boots for this costume and have purchased the red wine leatherette for the jacket. I have done a mock up of the jacket to see what it would roughly look like, a few alterations but it should look like Yokos. Need to work out the lining but the main designs have been penned and measured. Tomorrow hopefully will be the applique of the motifs onto the sleeves and back of the jacket.
Still need to train, however with my new job being so physical it should speed up some of the exercising needed. Still got a few little alterations on the gun to do then COMPLETE and should be ready for Kitacon ;)
Basics (Posted 27th September 2011)
Getting all the basics that I need for this costume and then later on I will start making the actual costume. I got all the small pieces like glasses, chopsticks and shorts. Got some leather to make the shorts slightly bigger. Belt has been purchase.
Donor boots have been sourced, will be covering in white leatherette to make them thigh highs. Leather dye will be purchased again however in red. Got leather for the bikini top.
Ths costume is well on the way to being complete with minimal efforts. My friend is well on the way with the rifle. Now for the hardest part.... the training :(
