|So I'm currently getting stuff together for his casual wear, BUT ... I'm also planning to do his hero suit, minus helmet. He looks so swoon-worthy in that~~ <3 Not that I will. XD But it looks cool!|
Actually ... dare I do the helmet??? Just to carry under my arm or something <_<

Oh no, I have so much to do! (Posted 27th March 2012)
... well that's a lie. I don't have too much left. XD
No photo I'm afraid, just an update. This is more a useful exercise for me to actually realise what I need to do. I have to
I'll be pretty satisfied when I've done all those things!

Ok, this is the second coat. It's going to have to do. XD If you don't fear its shininess, then there's something wrong with you.
It looks ok on, although it gapes at the arm on one side more than the other. That seems to be a running theme with stuff that I do. It just goes to show that I haven't really learnt anything in the past few years, haha.
Just so you know, the black thing on the side is part of the belt that I am starting to attach.
Oh dear (Posted 16th January 2012)
Well, I did a LOT of the coat. Cut out all the white, the lining, the grey bits at the bottom etc. I sewed it all together, did the splits, put on teh gold trim, put in a zip at the back. Tried it on at this point ... and guess what? I forgot that I have stupid woman hips. It all got cut up, and I have begun again. XDDDD;;; I have everything ... except I've run out of lining so that means I'll have to wait until Sunday to get more. Therefore, I shall continue with Tidus for the rest of the week. ~_~
They're Called Epaulettes (Posted 26th September 2011)
I made a start on the shoulder bits. Look, I know the balls (PFFFF) are too big (PFFFFFFFFFFFFF) but I kinda like the way it looks XDDD Just need to finish the gold bit and the tassels.
Everything about this journal entry sounds disgusting.

Well, this is really something I should do when I'm a bit further with everything else ... when does anything ever go to plan? XD
I originally drew the design with pens on paper, you know, the old fashioned way. It was more to get a feel for it and practice for putting it on the foam, but I liked how it turned out so I cut it out and slapped it on. I painted an uber thin outline around it with red paint. After peeling the paper off, I then put the black outlines on free hand, and then the colour blocks. I had to somewhat alter where the zig zag part was to get it more accurate. The writing ... well, it's wonky so you can DEFINITELY tell that -I- did it. XDDDD
Up and Away (Posted 7th September 2011)
I may as well start a journal for this beast. XD
I couldn't wait to make a start on this, so I had a root around what was left over from Bartz and Yukimura. Craft foam, my old/new friend! I thought this would be good to make the silver sleeve bits out of, so I cut out the shape and started painting straight away (it was black foam). About 8 layers so far ... I also made some gold strips for the detail. Once I've made the purple top, I will attach these to the sleeves so there will be no fear of them falling off! (I hope.)
