You'll make a fantastic Reaver, so I can't wait for this 8D

I'm still super tempted to join you btw (especially because it means I'll have to visit you lots to actually play the games /shot), but I can't decide who to do. Part of me would love to do Hero Queen from III, but another part of me wants to do Theresa xD

@Yuubalu: DKNJSDJKEND- ;A; ilu bro. Thanks for the support!
Haha, you should totally join me ;D (and YES. All the visits <3 xbox weekends ahoy! /saves) If you did Queenie from III, you could do Theresa from II (same design as III), when I do Reaver or Sparrow? 8'D (I'd love you forever and buy you many pita-breads, if that helps convince you at all x'D)

I was already contemplating maybe doing both anyway, so yeah, wtf not! x'D (pita breads would be much welcomed, but not necessary 8D)

Progress is looking great – I especially like the coat. I’d be interested to know what pattern you used for the coat, as I need to make a similar item myself for a future cosplay.

Thanks guys!

@ArcaneArchery: Ah, I'm really sorry, but I never used a pattern! I made a mockup of the coat in cheap fabric, then used those pieces as a guide for the final product - alas it was entirely guesswork 8'D sorry! I hope you can find a pattern somewhere!

Journal

Slow Progress, but nonetheless... (Posted 18th June 2014)

Leftover brown pleather from Ezio is being earmarked for Reaver's waistcoat, so that's one free costume piece ahoy~ I've begun drafting out the pattern for that (ages ago, actually haha) and have lots of worbla and clay to sort out the clasp on the front. Mmmmyes indeed.

I need pretty much identical trousers for Grantaire, so those can double up - I'm currently hunting down the perfect fabric for those, but it'll likely be the same fabric I use for his coat, too. Despite the expense, I'm definitely opting for fur for his jacket collar, as feather never looks right, imo?

Working out his hat and gun, still. Watch this space for progress!
