Severus Snape - Harry Potter




Severus Snape...My favorite character in the books. So complexe and so simple at the same time.

I also happen to love Alan Rickman. That was going to help.

I've not made a fabric costume this complexe before, it's a suit after all, and I'm a bit out of my depth. I made the first version of the costume in time for the february Expo, and I pulled out of the costume contest because I wasn't happy with it.

I now need to remodel it quite a bit before I give it another outing.

The wig needs some work, it's not right.

The Jacket doesn't hang, back to the drawing board!

Sephi, I'll defo wear this again...I've already demolished the jacket with plans to modify and the trousers aren't done yet, so it was a bit of a preview as it were...The wig needs more work too and I'll need to shorten the gown, It got walked on lots. Pics with your Lucious would be ace!

21st December 2009


I think I'm getting somwhere with the Jacket...Why is it always more complicated than you originally think?

6th December 2009


Ok, finished the patterns for the trousers. I still need to work out the tab for all the buttons, which is one thing still bugging me for the jacket.

note to self: must practice button holes!
