The rook

Costume Information

Ahh this might kick my other Denmark plans off the priority list for 2012.

It's not overly complicated and not a million layers of armor despite having months to go. I really like this design. ^^;

Edit: Considering I don't have much ref except the one concept artwork to work from I'm altering the coat's base shape since A) I suck B) I'm scared of trying to alter this pattern to fit the coat design so It'll be more of a basic 'revolutionary civil war' style. I've pretty much guessed with colours close enough with what I could get my hands on from the local fabric stores considering dark teal green is rather hard to come by I've accepted teal blue more.

It's the best it's getting atm for Kitacon. I think when it comes Amecon and when I'm not between con/expo times I'll jazz this thing up properly with buttons and stuff. Since it's appearance is rather..boring and empty.

It's's crappy but it's done with what short time I've got between everything to do.
I've pretty much finished the the best it's getting before Kitacon.
If I can ever get regimental wool I would love to tackle this all over again really.|:

I hate to say I have to go spend more money on more gold ribbon apparently 2 metres of large/medium wasn't enough. urghh I've had to think around this stupid -winging- design idea for this coat. Since I'm trying to follow what the art has for a design but work it in to this rev coat pattern. x.x

Adding detail (Posted 18th March 2012)

Oh this is all I’ve done so far….I hate glue….I hate gold trimming shit…

Sleeves of hell. (Posted 10th March 2012)

I have the base all complete!
It's just a case of a million buttons and adding the details. Which I'm yet to purchase!

Base coat progress (Posted 7th March 2012)

I'm surprised after two days and only spending a few hours at a time on it on how far I've got.

Doodle Refs (Posted 23rd December 2011)

I really wanted to get started by Christmas on this... I have the pattern, I'm scared of it ^___^; Only thing I lack is the ideal fabric because fabric stores in my city suck for having things in stock or getting here on time. I'm debating the use of "Regimental Coat wool" like the pattern recommends..I think I'll opt for the cheaper option & also plan on tweak Denmark's original design slightly to fit the pattern because I'm scared of messing up trying to tweak this pattern at all.
