HotshotShan - Frodo Baggins - 5th February 2013
...A very rough percentage. What I actually mean is it's all complete save for the cape, the new sewing machine is working like a dream and I'm not as behind schedule as I worried!
I've just finished the breeches. Originally I had planned for them to have pockets but that proved a little too fiddly for me in a panicked con-in-a-fortnight state, but I think I get the idea of them nontheless so that's a sort-of experience?
I digress, I'm excited for Midlands now instead of just worried. I'm pretty happy with with how the breeches turned out and though there's one or two parts that have gone a little wrong, such as the seam placements when worn, the fact the waist band is a little spacey yet the trouser hems hug my chunky calves, they're comfy and better than I expected myself to achieve.
...Oh! I also acquired 'Sting' from Toys 'R Us 'with realistic battle sounds' - shwingggg :'D
