Cara
Legend of the Seeker

Cosplayer: naurarwen

Variant: Season 2

Status: Planned

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

23rd November 2010: McCall's M5734 I have bought this pattern to try for Cara obviously it needs alot of adjustments as the legs and arms are both flared on this pattern. So hoping to pick up some mock up fabric in the next few weeks to try it out. So wish me luck!

22nd November 2010: Pattern and agiles and other things. Well I have still yet to source a pattern for this. I'm trying to think of many different ways to do it. I haven't tried the denim catsuit pattern idea yet but will hopefully be getting round to that some time after Xmas. Need to start by unstitching the entire thing and then working on the pieces I want/need.

I have found some awesome agiels for sale on ebay. They make them unpainted for $55 and $4.50 for the brass chain instead of a standard chain. Its a fair price but I've yet to come up with an idea on how to make them myself at the moment so this is definitely a back up plan. Once I get them all I will have to do is spray them the right red colour and then laquer them.

The boots I got at amazing and I love them but they are so tight on my calves, stupid years of horse riding has given me far too much muscle so the likelihood of getting the catsuit under them is looking highly unlikey. I'm wondering if I can find a way to remove the zip, add a panel of leatherette and the have them lace up the size instead which may help the tightness and catsuit issue. Am terribly worried about ruining them though at the same time as they are an amazing pair of boots.

This is going to look great on you.

re; burgandy fabric. I know Abakhans had some a while back but I'm not sure if they have it now as it will be out of season. I know they do restock.

As I said to street-angel I don't think its likely I'll have this finished for LFACC as not even started it properly yet and with the mass amount of altering patterns etc plus all the eyelets its going to need gonna take me a while. But I have said I will let you guys know when I've finished it and we can arrange to meet up at a con for pics. :D

I know what this is now, a friend of mine has a screen used Cara outfit which she wore at Dragon Con! The fabric is great, and I need to swat on legend of the seeker!

I've seen the screen used ones their awesome but think they sold their last one the other day. I'm still working on a pattern for this at the moment, its going slow...very slow.
