Yay! haha :) I'm really hoping people don't mistake me for Jack Sparrow at the expo, I'm looking forward to finishing it though!

Lapels! (Posted 2nd March 2014)

Just finished sewing the rest of the paisley fabric onto the lapels! Really happy with how this turned out. In the photo they look a bit uneven but it's just the angle of the photo :) Not much left to do on the jacket now - just a few details and then I'll be moving onto the trousers!

11/2 (Posted 11th February 2014)

Today I managed to get all of the fabric I need to add to the jacket! Really pleased so far. I'm about to start sewing some of it on so hopefully it goes well! Wish me luck.

10/2 (Posted 10th February 2014)

Today I went shopping with a friend and finally found some beige trousers to use! Never thought I'd be able to get any. At some point before the end of this week I'm hopefully going to paint the red pinstripes on the trousers, which means they will then be finished! Tomorrow I'm also going fabric hunting, which means I'll be getting started on the jacket tomorrow night also.

Shoes and jacket (Posted 5th February 2014)

I've already posted a picture, but today I managed to find a suitable jacket to use as the main base for the cosplay! Super pleased with this. I also went in a random shoe shop and, thankfully, spotted some knee high boots that are PERFECT for this, so on Sunday I'm going to buy them too! Very pleased with how this is going so far. By the end of next week I also hope to find some beige trousers too, but so far they're proving more difficult than expected to find :(
