Wig styled - check
Hat finished - check

Out of these 2 the hat took the longest to do. And a note to my future self next you want to make a mini top hat think of better to cut the plastic for the base. But it was fun to make the hat, despise the fact that it might have awoken and old injury in one of my wrists.

slow progress (Posted 12th March 2014)

yeah . . . I've been kind of inactive lately but that is due to the fact I have been focusing on uni stuff, but when ever I get the chance I do what I can.
Not last weekend but the weekend before that I went home for a family weekend and I made sure that I took back what I needed in oreder to try the wig on and I was able to a little bit of work on the hat after the picture was taken. When I got after the family weekend I brought back a sample of the fabric that I've used for the hat and this weekend just gone bought the ribbon for the hat and some thread for when I get to move onto the coat.
Speaking of the coat that along with the waist coat I've been trying to find patterns for them, the waist coat I've found a couple of possibles but the coat no luck so far.

And lastley my very first attempt at the eyebrows, in all honesty after I had finished drawing them on I couldn't stop giggling

early stages (Posted 4th January 2014)

I've bought the wig during coscrafts sale and I've gotten a start on the hat over christmas.
For the hat I wanted to have something sturdy, not easy to brake or bend. Which lead to me using plastic. I ended up using some old ribbion reals that would've most likely thrown away. It took some time to cut through the plastic, but I finly did a couple of days ago. Just need to file down the edges before the fabric can go on and sewn to the rest of the hat and then I just need to find the right colour of ribbon, but that will be oustide of term time when I next go home.
