Shopping List



Finished... (Posted 8th August 2012)

...sorta xD Just need to hand stitch the edges of the front two strips of ribbon and hem the sleeve lining for the coat and he'll be finished at last! Everything else is done, it's just these little things left. Can't wait to wer him about on Saturday :)

Finally Started (Posted 11th July 2012)

I have finally gotten somwhere with Howl's coat. Though I'm thinking this is definitely going to turn out more difficult than I originally thought! Also, there are so. Many. Diamonds! I now have the pleasure of sewing them together in strips then sewing all those strips together xD.

Jewellery Beads (Posted 19th June 2012)

Oh I also bought all of Howls coloured beads for his jewellery and they are all so pretty! They are the Swarovski element beads I was looking at before and the photo really does no justice, these catch the light so beautifully! I am still not sure whether I will be using gold beads for the main necklace chain or whether I will just use a gold chain without beads... I can't decide yet what will look nicer... :/

New Fabric... Again >.< (Posted 19th June 2012)

Well... In the end I kept the pink fabric but bought different blue fabric for Howl and now I am definitely content with the colour of all my fabric! I will also hopefully be starting him today, with just over a month to get him finished while having to do other cosplays at the same time I think I better!

New Fabric (Posted 17th April 2012)

Both my pink and purple/blue fabric arrived a while ago and while I have decided the blue/purple will be okay, the pink was a real let down in quality. So I ordered some new stuff and it arrived today! After much deliberation on whether the colour was adequate enough I decided I was being too anal about it all and that the colour would be fine! xD Just need to wait for exams to all be over so I can finally start! >.< As always photos of fabric don't really show the true colour but it's not bad :)

GODTHESEBEADS! (Posted 12th March 2012)

So I've bought the pink and blue/purple suede fabric I want to use for Howl's coat and I can't wait for it to arrive so I can see it! Though it's coming from Thailand and the USA so it may take a while. Have also sourced a lot of other things I want to use for the rest of the cosplay, including sexy swarovski beads for Howl's jewellery :D However... I can't for the life of me find appropriate beads for the necklace chain. I swear I have scoured the internet and I cannot find any long gold oval shaped beads! So I may have to go with a plain chain or straight tubed beads... That or I could spray paint some long oval beads gold, however I don't really want to do that for fear of the gold rubbing off and onto my shirt/coat(It's happened before). Meh, I suppose I'll settle on what I am going to do eventually, just need to get myself content with it xD Really hope all the jewellery turns out pretty though! x3
