26th March 2009: 1 more evening to go Ok, nearly there, this has been tough getting finished but now have just the skull and crossbones to sew on and some boot tops and eye patch to make. (I think)
Had a bit of a wigathon with Miiol so I now sport the 'LLB'...... a wig that turns me magicaly into lawrence lewellin bowen!!! lol.
Finished my capelet last night, getting the collar to stand up just right has been an ongoing issue and also got his holsters done, really wasn't sure how they were going to turn out but I'm rather pleased with the end result.
23rd March 2009: getting there A long weekend of progress has been had!
Managed to get the guns finished at last, sewed up the cloak and -almost- finished the capelet; if only I hadn't run out of Gold Bias. Also made his black and Yellow trim but then realised how tricky it's going to be to sew on.
Still got holsters, boot covers and accessories to make so a way to go yet.
18th March 2009: zap, zap Well both his guns are now constructed and I'm quite pleased with how they are looking, need to paint and finish them now.
I've got a suitable wig now and that needs styling. I've also picked up suitable fabric and cut out all required pattern pieces.
Oh, how I've come to hate cutting out cloaks, the amount of material required when your 2m tall makes it very tiring!!
9th March 2009: Pistols Progress is oh so slow, mainly because I'm still working on something else...
I have however accumilated enough gubbins to make his laser guns now and over the weekend I made his pistol. Laser saber/gun thing next and then I will paint them.

Probably have to pass on the Pelican, Minami's getting close and I havent really started yet! But we will see.

Most excellent. I can't wait to see. Extreme cape-age is always good.
