Description
Originally I was going to do Daenerys for KitaIV's GoT group but as there was already quite a few I decided to keep the group interesting to do another character (Dany is now delayed til later in the year).

Jaime is one of the few options left I could do as I can use the wig I have for Tidus/Raphael.




"Kita is coming".

(This costume is now listed as complete. I'll be adding the props to the Kingsguard costume project instead).

*Update Nov 2012*

Yay! We got featured on Winteriscoming.net. So thrilled that we got to be part of a feature on there. Thank you to my fellow Thronies and to the site for featuring us. You can see the feature here Winteriscoming.net Feature

*Update 2014*
Costume has been sold to a new owner.

Hey, you looked amazing in this at Kita. Sorry i never managed to actually talk to you. I waved a few times but i don't think you saw as every time I saw you you were heading purposefully and quickly somewhere. This whole group was just amazing. Hope you had fun at Kiat and you looked beautiful as the queen of the Kita ball! :D

Well done Sephy. If this is flying by the seat of your pants... well I wish I could work half as fast as you! Costume looks amazing. I did wonder about the sword, cuz they would make epic photo poses, but I can see you are adding it later. Such an epic group! :)

Journal

LFCC and Sold On (Posted 16th July 2014)

I wore Jaime as part of a Game of Thrones group at LFCC 2013 on the Sunday. Got to have an Iron Throne shoot which I loved.

Sadly, the costume is now too big for me after I lost loads of weight over Easter this year. Due to the design there is no way to take it in so I reluctantly sold it. I'm happy to say it has gone on to a good home.

I do have plenty of the jacket material left over so I can remake Jaime at a later date.

At Kitacon (Posted 18th April 2012)

Managed to get most of it completed bar the props(sword and dagger) and the rings. When it came to the actual day it turned out to be massive on me. Only the jacket fitted me XD. Even the binder was far too big. So I did look a bit big in it. Shame the 'Charming' hairstyle in the wig got crushed in transit. With the amount of hairspray that was in it there was no way I could easierly restyle.

However, I did have an amazing time being the Kingslayer and loved every second of being part of the Thrones group. Definitely wearing him again. I will be wearing him at LFCC with hopefully the completed swords and the size adjustments done.

Jacket Clasp progress (Posted 15th April 2012)

Final piece to be done on the jacket, the clasp. The main piece was cut from Sintra using a Dremel multi-tool. It was sanded and slightly curved with a heat gun so that it sat comfortably on me. I cut out a lion head in mounting board and glued it to the centre. Once it was fully dry I then painted it with acrylic paint and sealed it with spray varnish. It was then attached to the jacket.

The Jacket Progress 3 (Posted 9th April 2012)

Close up of the collar showing where it needs adjusting.

Please excuse derp face and bad photogarphy. I'm using my camera phone.

Did have a moment of hilarity when I made my Brother nearly spit out his tea. The fabric for the main body is leatherette/pleather. As I was sewing one of the sleeves I remarked that I was going to 'smell of wellies' XD XD.

The Jacket Progress 2 (Posted 9th April 2012)

Once the side panels were completed it was on to making the main body. As it is to be fully lined I did the outside first to see the fit and to see what might need adjusting. It ended up a bit long and the collar is a little long. I can adjust these as I fit the lining.

I managed to complete to outer layer fairly quickly.

Please excuse derp face and bad photo quality. I was using my phone.

The Jacket Progress 1 (Posted 9th April 2012)

Finally made a start on the jacket. I was late in getting the fabric so unfortunately will have to do 'flying by the seat of the pants' sewing to get it done in time.

Started first with the side panels. They had to be sewn one panel at a time. This proved quite time consuming but the effect does work.

The Trousers pt 2 (Posted 9th April 2012)

Close up of the trousers showing the front zip fly. I just need to add the waist band button and then they are fully complete.

Please forgive the poor photography. Was using my phone.

April 2012.

The Trousers pt 1 (Posted 9th April 2012)

The trousers. These are fully tailored hand made trousers that took me roughly three hours to do. They are made from a heavy suedette so they have double seams on the back and inside leg for extra toughness.

Please forgive the poor photography. Was using my phone.

The Shirt (Posted 7th April 2012)

Completed shirt that will be worn under the jacket. Its a pirate style shirt that was put together in under two hours. Its all been properly finished so that its quite strong. Its been made from a natural cotton to have the right look and to be comfortable under the jacket.

Please forgive the poor photography. Was using my phone.

WIIIGGGGGGG!!! (Posted 1st March 2012)

Finally made some progress on the wig. I used the same wig as I used for Raphael. I used hot water to clean it and reset it. I'm now in the process of styling the wig so it matches.

Dagger (Posted 28th February 2012)

Decided to work on the dagger first to test if how I want to make the sword will work. Currently making a template then I'll be cutting about 3 to 4 layers of Sintra. I'll glue those together then sand/carve the detail into it.

Not looking forward to all the filigree XD.

Shirt and making a start (Posted 9th December 2011)

Making a start today by patterning up the undershirt. The shirt is going to be a basic pirate shirt made out spare fabric so that it can be used for other things.
