|I'm going to be Wyrdsister Loki's slave/minion/biatch/puppy/Loki-toy (tick appropriate)|
I wasn't originally going to do this version as I already had the battle suit plus quite a few peeps have already done this version well. As I'm doing Hawkeye for an event in November I decided that the battle suit wasn't a good idea as its all bare arms. I decided to go with first appearance with the jacket as it allows me to have plenty of pockets and keep warm.

S.H.I.E.L.D patches gets! (Posted 4th April 2013)
I don't normally like to post a journal in which I show something that I haven't done any adjusting or sewing to but I really liked how these looked so had to share them.
S.H.I.E.L.D patches gets! They arrived this morning and they are great. I can now finish Hawkeye's tactical jacket. I would have made them myself but currently don't have the time. Plus, I wanted them to be exact to each other. These I managed to find really cheap so I am really happy with them. Hopefully, they will look great on the jacket.
SHIELD Patches and Trousers (Posted 29th March 2013)
I was originally going to make the two I needed. The one I made for my Battle Suit I quite liked so I was going to do the same thing two more times. I then realised on closer inspection of the ref images that the patches he has on his jacket are of a more complex design so I decided to see if I could buy them.
I managed to find two quite cheaply. They are slightly lighter in colour than the actual ones but that is an easy fix. Once I have them I'll be able to add them as I make the jacket.
I also managed to sort out some cheap army style trousers through my local Primark. I was going to get actual US tactical ones but saw the price and decided against it as I wanted to keep this as low budget as possible.
Patterning waistcoat and gun. (Posted 2nd November 2012)
Currently patterning the waistcoat. After looking through the ref pics I've managed to grab there is quite a few panels as well as detail at the back so I can't just use a base waistcoat pattern. So I'm in the middle of making one.
I have a set of toy guns that I brought for an old Lara Croft costume that I'm unlikely to ever use for Lara again so I am repainting one of them for Clint.
