Costume Information

Cost : £100ish
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!
(Currently got a Zack wig drying so I can finish that tonight too.)

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).
Finally got the damn brown cotton! I'm just about to sew the jacket together along with the lining and then add the trim.
All that's left after that is the cape, pockets on the tunic and boot covers. I will do this tonight!

Plan for the next week:
Tomorrow (Friday) finish Alex start on Menardi + wigs.
Saturday + Sunday - Menardi
Monday - Assignment + wigs
Tuesday - hand in assignment + wigs
Wednesday - Menardi
Thursday - Menardi until we leave.

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.
Going searching for brown material this week so hopefully I can finally find the right stuff and finish the tunic by Tuesday. Then all that's left is the jacket and cape which I can do wednesday and thursday. I have to be finished in time to start Menardi by Friday.
(Oh and do three wigs this week.)

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.
Starting with the smalls things for now as I'm feeling a bit out of practise and generally unfocused. Going to do all the fosshape stuff first then move onto the tunic if I can ever find the right brown cotton. (Seriously, how hard is it to get brown cotton!?)
