14th May 2010: Bottom Half Complete I now own some amazing shoes for him, and I'm loving the trousers. I'm wearing some white tights instead of socks... the socks just didn't look right. The tights seem to work okay, I maaaaaayyy wear a second pair at the same time.
On the image, my top half obviously isn't my costume. The shirt is actually a dress shirt I recieved for my Birthday and the waistcoat is my casual alternative one. I just wanted to wear something OTHER than my pj top for this photo (this was taken around midnight).
That's my brother's room by the way.
11th May 2010: Progress We have material for the coat. It's a little light... but, comapted to the perfect material that was £35 a metre we kind of like this one. It's pretty sturdy nad is close to the material we wanted.
Shoes have arrives, they're a pretty good fit, if a little roomy at the toes... we'll be able to fix that though. They look fantastic, even if they do seem to be more burgandy than brown... ah well, minor error. Many thanks to Monkey for helping me find some ^^
The waistcoat is still in progress... but nearing completion. It look a little weird, but that's becuase it has yet to form the shape of a waistcoat xD
Once the coat and waistcoat are made, there is very little to do afterwards, the only essential is the stockings. The glasses... it would be nice if I could get some smarter ones, but it won't be a tradgedy if I wear my normal ones (plus, I'll have perfect vision 8D). And the baton is merely something to pose with... becuase I like posing with props. I'm sure I'll think of something.
27th April 2010: General Update Because YOU'D THINK that I haven't worked on this costume at all.... well I have xD
Wig is done, made by the AMAZING Demented-Kid. So many people think it's my real hair... Even people who KNOW ME. I love how natural it is... I could just MARRY that wig.
I need a new shirt for it, I can't wear my brother's old one again... however, it's not a huge tragedy if I have to wear one of my blouses. Although, I will certainly need one if the issue below comes apparent.
The coat.... may not be done for Expo ;_; I just fear that I can't do it in time. This costume has been put off for way too long and I would like it to be complete. So I am going to push to make sure it is complete.... however there are no guarantees. It's certainly the hardest part of the costume.
I found some LOVELY material for the waistcoat, it doesn't match the picture entirely, but it's a good realistic alternative. I accidently cut it a little too short... which just means we have to be be careful when we do the seam allowance. There was a bit of an issue with the sizing, but now it's all sorted, we just needed some new lining.
Cravat is done, I just need to figure out how to tie it properly.
My main worry is the shoes... I don't know WHERE I'm going to find some noble looking shoes like that. I've looked in shoe shops and on ebay but nothing is coming up. People who are good at shoes..... HELP! I'm also worried that these will cost the most money.... MONEY THAT I DO NOT HAVE! (becomig worryingly like Ausria here xD)
The trousers.... we've bought some from a charity shop (ftw) and we're going to alter them. They're not exactly the right colour... but they'll do. They're very comfy.
For the white sock things.... I'm not sure what I'll need, I'm looking into those. Possibly some white aeroplane tights? I'll ask people ^^ I don't fancy while leggings.... wedgie xD
