Crikey, we didn't expect this much of a response! :)

Thanks chaps, we'll push on on this once we've got Hit Girl out of the way.

Thanks all! Progress has been a bit slow as we've moved house, but we should get properly going on this shortly. Still aiming to get it ready for October Expo...

Thanks. Finally got going, big decision is do we try for the sword as well..eep. Els' all for it but time, time, time.....

It would be amazing to have the sword as well for photos but the expo hall is pretty strict about props so you might have a nuisance with it if you're coming and going a lot.

Hmm. Good point....

Thanks. Went for plaits, but her hair's not really long enough to pull it off. Must get hair extensions for next time.

yes, the syrio/arya proyect will be awesome you must do it some of these years... GoT is a classic so not big deal if it takes for ever :-)

It's Syrio's hair and beard that's stopping me!

Looking great as always!

Hope things pan out making needle! Sword making can be a nightmare >.< lol

Thanks Numta - making the "proper" sword seems to be going easier than the other one - so fingers crossed we might actually finish this one!

Getting closer.... (Posted 13th April 2013)

Very rough cut, but with a bit of sandpaper (and some luck) we might get there this time.

Laying out (Posted 13th April 2013)

So we measured out and then cut into vaguely the right proportions then marked out for further cutting.

Base material 2 (Posted 13th April 2013)

Eat your heart out Mikken!

Base material 1 (Posted 13th April 2013)

We've finished decorating....

Then again.. (Posted 8th April 2013)

So having failed horribly at the practice sword, we're going to try and do Needle because that will be soooo much easier (won't it?)

No sword :( (Posted 6th April 2013)

Our sword making skills are poo......

Try again (Posted 30th October 2012)

Switched back to in progress as we're determined to make the sword and give this one a proper airing.

Ack - crappy trains (Posted 29th October 2012)

Ended up late getting to Expo due to train delays, so after the mad rush to get the costume finished, poor El had about an hour in it before having to get changed for the masquerade...


Crikey that was close.. (Posted 27th October 2012)

Mad rush today to make the blouse and finish the trousers due to other things on. Icky moment when we released we'd sewed the sleeves on back to front (oh, how we, thinking about it we didn't). Just need to tighten everything up and add another drawstring thingy and we're done. No sword for Expo though :(

At last (Posted 1st October 2012)

Hacked and slayed the trousers to a better fit and started sewing up...

Material (Posted 23rd July 2012)

Found the material! We can finally start making and cutting...

And so it begins... (Posted 19th June 2012)

Starting working how to do this.

The top looks more difficult than we thought (those ruffs at the top) but we'll work it out
