:) Hehe

Well the plan is to roll it out in February at London Super Comic Con and again in Expo in October (Sad, but true, we've actually got a schedule of where we're going and what she's wearing for next year already...)

No problem any idea of when it'll be done ? I'd love to see it in person :-)

:) Most kind.

Hoping to have ready for the end of this month (although we're going to re-make the cape and we still have to successfully make the t-shirt).

First run out will be London Super Comiccon but she'll be using it a couple of times this year (Hit Girl is looking quite pricey so although we're still making it, it's going to preclude making a lot of costumes this year)so there's a fair chance you should see it live.

This looks great so far. :-) Misfit is such a fun character, I'm sure she'll have a great time dressing as her.

Thanks. Aye, somehow she seems to be relate to a noisey troublesome teen who doesn't like chores. :)

Hair test (Posted 24th February 2013)

Some wash in/wash out and it looks not too bad.

Just the hair to go (Posted 17th February 2013)

We've permission from her school to go ginge!

Snippity snip (Posted 13th January 2013)

Cutting both t shirts the same and then sewing the right bits together...

T shirts arrived! (Posted 13th January 2013)

Just need a cunning plan to merge them together....

Hmm (Posted 6th January 2013)

Cape looks far too short. Drat

Made a belt 2! (Posted 6th January 2013)

It works! Just need to paint it up.

Made a belt! (Posted 6th January 2013)

Ok, so we just wrapped some leatherette around itself and then added a buckle, but we're quite pleased

Utility belt 2 (Posted 6th January 2013)


Utility belt 1 (Posted 6th January 2013)

Sketching out the template and the all important task of making sure she can get her sweeties in it!

So far (Posted 1st January 2013)

Gloves and boots bought in the sale (hurrah), skirt sort of done. Cape also (might need some twiddling to get to sit right). We've done a dry run of the mask but need to adjust the model slightly also we need the right colour (blue?). Two T-shirts on the way (one blue, one black) which we plan to cut up and sew back together to get the tshirt design right. Then it's just the the utility belt...

Cutting down (Posted 1st January 2013)

Size minus 20 on the way..

Skirt (Posted 1st January 2013)

Pair of size 8's in the sale to be cut down to size something or other. Very small anyway....

Lining (Posted 1st January 2013)

Um, adding the lining.

Hemming (Posted 1st January 2013)

Sewing in

Glueing (Posted 1st January 2013)

Glueing the hems prior to sewing

Under orders (Posted 1st January 2013)

El's asked me to put as many pictures of her making this one up as I can. (I think she worries that people don't thinks she makes most of her own costumes) so here we go. First cut....

Stuff! (Posted 1st January 2013)

Material arrived....

Whys and whatnot (Posted 11th November 2012)

With El being a fan of the old school Birds of Prey this seemed to be a natural for her. The big plus for us is that it's almost a "hit girl lite" and will give us the chance to practice making a cloak and utility belt.
