That is bad luck with the machine >.< but there is still time left! At least its not the night before expo. Good luck, and I'm sure it will be awesome when it is finished!

To-Do List

Remake ALL the things!HighIn Progress


T'was the week(end) before expo... (Posted 21st October 2012)

All that's left to do is paint the detail on the other side of the coat... then I've actually done it =D I've finished both cosplays on time!

that belt! (Posted 9th October 2012)

I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...I hate fake-leather...
Horrible stuff really...

Jeeze, it's like last year has come back to haunt me... (Posted 4th October 2012)

Hello, long time since the last journal on this costume.
Still, I've already bust one needle (like last time, this is why I wear my glasses when sewing) on this remake.

Yeah, I decided that I wanted to Mr Grumpy McSnarkypants again :D

This time, I'm using a thicker base cloth so it shouldn't lift up as easy as the last one did.
Also, the hood actually fits my head this time - previously I'd run out of material to remake it!

As is evidenced by the photo, the only things I have left to make are the belt(s) and the Dai coat-thing. Oh joy. Remind me again why I left that until last, last time? (also need to remember where I left my boots, and choose the right trousers)

I've had more time to practice using only one hand, lets see if I can do so for the day of expo XD

Well, who knows - I might actually put up an image of the finished result BEFORE expo this year... :D ... but don't bet on it!

Ah just going to cry in a corner (quietly) (Posted 4th November 2011)

The fake blood I used on my long tunic hasn't fully come out. I was planning on remaking it anyway but now I have a good incentive to do so. Huzzah!

Therefore, even though this is shown as complete - I'm still working on it!

If you're happy and you know it clap your hand (Posted 28th October 2011)

Yes the morning of expo I can be found doing a little victory dance because I finally finished this outfit in the wee hours of this morning! HUZZAH!

Oh yes, THAT COAT! (Posted 26th October 2011)

As much as I love that coat, its been nothing but trouble... I've got to add the designs to it tonight/tomorrow and then the whole costume will be complete (sans wig, but that should be arriving soon - I hope!)

On another note, I've been experimenting with having only one arm, I can do enough to get by, but its really annoying when you realise that there are some things you /definately/ need two hands for... :D

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet (Posted 13th October 2011)

WHY? Why do I let myself use a sewing machine un-assisted? I mean, halfway through hemming the dark blue rafiq coaty thing my last needle decides to not want to play nice anymore and snap - the sharp-pointy bit flew at my cheek (No scar tho, so it's all fun and games).
I'll be using parts from my other version of Malik so don't expect this journal to get updated that much :) but I'll probably use this page to gloat once I've finished.

Oh dear lord, why is expo at the end of this month?
