Knife Jacket and Throwing Knives (Posted 9th June 2012)

Hey guys!
The next plan of action is to make the vest and throwing knives. A friend linked me to these:
http://www.medievalcollectibles.com/p-5572-larp-throwing-knife-with-leat...
And they're the most screen-accurate items I've found. However, I am on a very tight budget so I'll be using it as a reference to make my own. I'm pretty sure Dad has some woodboard in his workshop and I can just papier mache from then on.

Slowly making progress! (Posted 29th May 2012)

The jacket is slooooowly coming along, thank goodness! Mum brought me a sewing machine too, so thank you mother :3

Starting the grey lining tomorrow! (Posted 20th May 2012)

Alrighty, so, tomorrow I'll be buying and starting to sew the grey lining onto the jacket, which means I should have everything done before Collectormania! \o/

Boots (Posted 9th May 2012)

The boots have arrived! And they are so comfy omg.
Now just to polish them brown.

So, heh... just measured the binding... Uh.... (Posted 4th May 2012)

Yeah, so, turns out ima need 8m of grey binding and 5m of orange...
Fun, fun, fun.

Now that I have the jacket, I just need to get a new t-shirt. (Posted 29th April 2012)

The t-shirt is an utterly different colour to the jacket, which I'm a bit miffed about but I can't really complain as the t-shirt was only £2.

Ah well, to Primark!
