Costume Information

Description
I decided that if I put up a note saying I'll make this, I might /actually/ get around to making it! (Hopefully in time for October expo 2011!)

...I seem to be making a habit of cosplaying guys with only one arm. First Superbi Squalo, now Malik Al Sayf - who next?

EDIT:

OMFG I ACTUALLY STARTED WORKING ON THIS!
Now to see if I finish it in time - I should be meeting up with my friend who is going as Kadar (hopefully) and we're going to try and haunt an Altair!

EDIT TWO:

I /actually/ finished this (just) in time for october expo '11... Even though I will probably re-make parts later.

Journal

T'was the morning of expo... (Posted 28th October 2011)

...and I finally finished making everything (except for the weapons, but they just need painting).
I am so happy.
I am probably going to re-do parts of this later, when I'm not rushing around like a madwoman!

T'was two nights before expo... (Posted 26th October 2011)

...and this outfit STILL isn't complete!
Although it is mostly complete - I only have the left vambrace to complete and the whole costume will be recognisable as Malik - but I will probably/possibly re-do a few things after expo so that I'm truely happy with it!

Also, my wig /still/ hasn't arrived yet - I may yet have to quickly re-style one of my other wigs...

Who let me near the sewing machine this time? (Posted 3rd October 2011)

(should really call this Oh dear part two...)

As you can see, I've been busy working on this. This time I've been sewing the shoulder-harness-thing and the waist belt and sash. The triangle-shaped buckle and the wrist-things are my next project. (can you tell I can't remember what they are actually called?)
Also - I have decided that hoods are horrible horrible /horrible/ things to sew without a pattern to work from! Thank Interwebs for Altair cosplay tutorials - I couldn't have done this without them!

The only thing I regret about choosing this costume is the fact that I am nowhere near my workshop so I can't make the actual weapons (So I suspect I shall have those next time I wear this xD)

Image shows current progress of the robes, frnt and back.
(yes, the robes are split at the back, but I was in a rush to upload pics that I forgot to check you could see everything was correct before putting my camera away and rushing to my lecture!)

Oh dear... (Posted 19th September 2011)

Yes, yet again, I've been left on my own near a sewing machine... Why am I allowed to do this?

Basically I've managed to create the robes, I've already got the trousers and boots (but they are already part of my wardrobe so I don't think I need to photograph them and then add said images seperately).
Have I ever said that I dislike working on sleeves? No? Then here it is - I dislike sewing sleeves!

The shoulder-belty-thing is currently in progress, I just added it to the shot to show that I'm working on it :)

Right, the next time I update this I should be working on the hood and the sash... hopefully... yeah, we'll see if I don't end up sidetracked again...
