The outfit is perfect and I love Katniss, a powerful person, the wig looks a bit too big and not really real hair but a good effort and her hairstyle is hard to find.

Thanks cheerDaniel17 I actually have a new wig now but typically forgot to add the new pics. I'm still not overly happy with the new wig but its better then the old one.

So much to do and so little time (Posted 24th May 2012)

With 8 days to the convention, and only 7 of those days to actually finish the costume its all hands on deck for this costume. After coming down with a nasty chest infection last week progress has been fairly slow but it seems the antibiotics have finally started to kick in.

So here's my to do list:


- Hot glue nocks to arrows
- Respray tops of arrows
- Finish cutting out fletching and adding detailing
- Hot glue fletching to arrows....carefully


- Made cardboard base
- Make fabric to same specs as cardboard base
- Add silver lines to fabric
- Find a way to attach the two together
- Add quiver strap (still need to buy something to make it from)


- Finish adding grey lines that can be added to outer jacket before sewing together
- Make up lining
- Attach lining and outer jacket
- Add remaining grey lines
- Add press studs and cord to hood and waist

I was going to add pockets to my jacket but have decided against this as its adding more work to something I already don't have a lot of time to do. I reckon as long as I can plan this out properly I should be able to get it all done, and also with a little help from my boyfriend.
