|Time Taken :||5 days so far|
|Just cause he's so awesome! Alex has always been my favourite of the bad guys, his leg thingys are so cool too!|
I'm really happy with my fabric choices, I've gone for nice heavy fleece and jersey as it's such a wintery costume. I've seen a couple of people do him all in the same colour but there's so many different colours due to shading and highlighting that I've decided to do for two different colours for the tunic and jacket. I may switch to just one colour for May but at the moment I like how it is.
Final stretch (Posted 20th March 2009)
Almost done with Alex now. I'm just sewing the trim onto the jacket and that's all done. Pockets are all done on the tunic so that's finished. Cape is waiting to be sewn together and onto the jacket and then it's just the boot covers which won't take 5 mins.
Really loving the jacket now. Had a few minor hitches getting it all nicely fitted last night so that slowed me down but now it's almost done!
Go go pep pills! (Posted 20th March 2009)
Almost done with this and I can start on Menardi tomorrow (and somehow do my assignment in time for Tuesday).
Plan for the next week:
Half way there! (Posted 15th March 2009)
Managed to get quite a bit done this weekend. Accessories are all done apart from the belt which needs covering in lycra. Will have the trousers done by tonight and I'm making a start on the tunic as soon as those are done.
Finally starting (Posted 12th March 2009)
Thanks to almost a week long migraine now and stupidly strong migraine meds preventing me from going to uni (and wigs currently drying) I've found some time to do our own costumes at last.
