|Marking as complete, even though I'm still not 100% decided on the wig|
Susan is one of my favourite book characters of all time. I read Soul Music when i was younger, and I've adored Susan ever since. SO when Crazedteensie suggested a Discworld cosplay group, I just HAD to nab Susan before anyone else!
This cosplay will be my own design based on some fanarts I've seen and from her book description.
Overdress is made from a balck suiting fabric that has sparkly thread running through it, with sleeves and front panels made from a sparkly embroidered lycra knit. My aim with the fabric choices was smart, but with a bit of reluctant fanciness. Still debating whether to incorporate some pink or not XD
Cloak made by Crazedteensie
The wig I used for Manchester was on loan from Crazedteensie. It was based on a thing I once saw somewhere on the internet where Susan got really annoyed with her hair showing her emotions that she briefly hacked it all off.

Almost done (Posted 2nd November 2012)
Skirt is now attached to the bodice, so all I need to do is add more trimming to the skirt hem and make some sleeves!
Progress (Posted 31st October 2012)
Bodice is almost finished, just need to do the eyelets and sleeves. Skirt is in the process of being sewn together. I think I may need some more trim for the skirt and sleeves as I thought I'd bought the same type as some I already had. It was not the same :/
Starting (Posted 16th October 2012)
Last week I bought some fabric, and today I bought some trimmings
