Alas, real life got in the way a bit, and I will not have it to the level I want in time for Thought Bubble....I am therfore considering wearing my Steampunk gear instead.

Wore it anyway! (Posted 24th November 2013)

Still not completed to the level I want, but wore it to Thought Bubble anyway.......

Delays. (Posted 16th November 2012)

Got tied up in another project for too probably not wearing this for Thought Bubble, but will do to another event later. Bah!

Buckles next. (Posted 6th September 2012)

Pretty well done the Jerkin, just some interior finishing to complete. Vambraces and buckles are the next things to do. Gondorian buckles are of a distinctive pattern and used throughout the costume.

Started re cutting an old kaftan into the under tunic, and have made the leather edged tabard that goes over it.

Beginning (Posted 29th December 2011)

I am wary of posting too many "planned" cossies especialy as I have had a couple go awry and end up on the back burner for some length of time. However, after watching the LOTR DVDs over the holiday, I was inspired to go for a relevant cosplay, and this one looks do'able without more than a reasonable effort. In fact, it is one of those where I already have significant pieces of the kit. Cloak, boots, sword, bow and undershirt, and materials in stock for a lot of the rest, leather and fabric. So, see how this one goes!
