Costume Information

He's Amazing, He's fantasic,
His methods are quite drastic,
But he'll help you when you're sick!
Ladies and Gents we proudly present-
Doctor Mechanic!

Doctor Mechanic is part of the same universe as Captain Cogsworth and Co. He owns his own private medical facility which focuses on not just curing, but improving the human body. Because of this he's one of the few places which can maintain and upgrade Cogsworth. Well, actually there are many places but he has the best patient confidentially which is needed when you're a prototype on the run from your creators.

Will be wearing to Ayacon Friday and Saturday. I'll be joining Captain Cogsworth and Pierre the Goblin. And it shall be quite excellent.

I'll be doing a panel on emergency cosplay repairs at Ayacon as Doctor Mechanic at 5pm on the Friday if you want to see him in character. He is much fun in real life :D

Haha, HELL NO!

Doctor Mechanic is completely and perfectly British. He's very quiet and polite, and awefully considerate. That's mainly to do with his voice modulator though, which you'll see being built soon.

Exactly the same way you make a shirt, just with more seams and STEEL.

Brilliant character concept and costume creation. Looks like doctor mechanic isn't averse to performing the odd bit of surgery/improvement on himself.
Looks fantastic.

I should like to see the doctor myself someday, though not in his professional capacity..
*...nurse, pass me the BONE SAW please...
I won't lie, this is going to hurt. A lot...*

Are you writing more of his background story?

I'm actually going to start writing a comic about the steampunk characters. Nothing makes characters better than a little back story.

Corset boned. Just waiting for Bolts (Posted 7th August 2009)

Here's the smexy back.

Corset boned. Just waiting for Bolts (Posted 7th August 2009)

Here's the front boned but not yet finished

Corset boned. Just waiting for Bolts (Posted 7th August 2009)

Boned the corset today with sprung steel and a sheet of MDF. Looking nice and deformed!

Corset half done (Posted 6th August 2009)

It's green polycotton with orange raw silk lining and a coutil strength layer using the fold over method. The cog fabric is one of my own that I designed and got printed a while back. I'm so going to use it to make a mini hat. All of the boning channels are stitched in orange- it's nicer to look at, but my god it makes mistakes one of my biggest fears.

I found out today that the bolts I ordered to mount the cogs on the front are too short to do it properly. So looks like I'll get this baby boned tomorrow but won't be able to finish the entire thing until they arrive. This makes me sad as I want my mechanical corset NAO.

Oh yeah, it's going to be boned in 10mm flat steel. And a sheet of MDF. Why the MDF? Well, that shall become apparant when it's done. When I wear this I'm going to look so wonderfully deformed.

Corset Pattern (Posted 6th August 2009)

Here's the drafted pattern for the corset.

FACE (Posted 6th August 2009)

This is the makeup test for his face. It came out a lot creepier than I expected.
