The coat. The damnmotherfraking COAT. *_________* I... I think my brain just leaked out of my ears. And. And. This spack can only be fully realised in the ALMIGHTY tackle that I want to be giving you right now, and will be attempting to give you when I actually see this on you (evenifI'llbeafraidtodamageit) but just... I am rambling and I don't care. THE COAT IS SO STUNNING. THE WAISTCOAT IS SO STUNNING. THE RUFFLE-CUFFS ARE SO STUNNING. I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I... I LOVE YOU. I LOVE THIS.

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.

Progress Journal

17th June 2011

.Damn you, Jack Vessalius.

He's killing me.


Beginning with my bank-account.


Ran out of the blending dyes, so need to buy more, then need to get lining fabric and the odd few bits and bobs in order to complete him - earrings, for example...
The coat is coming along slowly... very slowly. It keeps bunching due to interfacing when I sew it >.< Dammit. But, its going to be done. Somehow. Even if it ends up looking terrible.

New wig is pretty much done, just need to plait it, but I'm leaving that until just before I travel to Skyla's ready for JapanExpo.



24th April 2011

.Coat Progress.

Finally sorted the coat fabric... which cost me an extra £20 OTL But hopefully I'll be getting the money back for my previous fabric soon ^^ So its not all bad.

Here's a swatch of the coat fabric that I've painted and blended with silk-paints to get the two-toned effect of Jack's coat in the artworks. I'll be doing this to the actual coat fabric when I've finished tacking and fitting it all! ...I'll start praying asap that it doesnt go wrong xD


11th April 2011

.Progress Continues.

Spats are in progress, as you can see from these pics ^w^ They're going okay, really... worried about actually sewing the 'pleather' side >.> but we'll see how that goes...? 8'D

Waistcoat is going okay - the fitting went very well, and I just need to hem the sleeves/neckline now... though may have left the buttons I bought for it in my Uni room (DERP D8) but really, they can either wait until I get back, or I can get new ones... tomorrow? Lol. Will see how much they'll cost.

Have had a LOT of fail with the coat. Dyeing velvet failed miserably and cost a lot, then I ordered some perfect-looking duchess satin instead, it arrived today and it was FAR too dark. Hopefully getting a refund though ^^ And have asked for several fabric swatches this time so I dont make the same mistake, and will look tomorrow too.

Hoping things go a little more smoothly from now on!


2nd April 2011

Progress Commences Once Again!

Off we go <3

Wish me luck! ...this is gonna break my bank OTL

But it WILL be worth it... I hope.

Might have to by-pass the new wig this time around, but we'll see... (I'd rather make a new one for wearing him seriously tbh >__>)

Back to dyeing velvet I go!


7th December 2010

Long time, no update...

Okay. So... after all that work, the wig I've done and proudly posted up here... is being replaced for the actual cosplay.

Yeah. I suck, but it just never seemed right to me, and after a good few photoshoots in casuals/etc, I've decided that I'm just not happy with it at all. I have a replacement picked out, and will be buying it after christmas, hopefully. The old wig will be kept for casual meet-ups, and messing about with friends etc.

So basically, just letting all of you know - progress on this cosplay WILL pick up again after Christmas, I'm determined.

Wish me luck

The Battle for the SEXY HAIR... part 4



This is definately one of the most, difficult wigs I've ever styled x'D
Plaiting the whole thing was tough to get right, but its done! ...and while it was impossible to get it looking perfectly neat, I think it turned out pretty well in the end~! ^^

I've doused it in hairspray now too, in the hopes that it'll hold better against damage/usage this way :'D though I'm gonna be sure to keep the plaited end in a bag whenever the wig isnt in use!

Progress pics are up~! <3 The image attatched to this journal just, in my opinion, gives a much better view on just HOW long the wig is :'D

Oh, and Lacie, my lovely pocket watch, has arrived! ...and it WORKS! *amazed* xD (I just thought it was decorative, not functional! lol)

26th February 2010

The Battle for the SEXY HAIR... part 3

I've completed the top.

After doing SO MUCH WORK ON IT! *collapses and rolls around in joy* xDD This wig is literally a mess of homemade wefts and awkward sewing :'D lol

I'm not completely happy with how it turned out, but I still quite like it! Its been a while since I did such intense styling on a wig, and I was really worried how it was going to turn out... but I think it went okay. ^^

I went for a more natural look with the wig... and I'm glad I did. It took a lot of cutting and layering to get it to where it is now, and though I might tweak it a little, I think it's pretty accurate as is!

Hope my group (my GLEN in particular *pokes* 8DDD lol) approve! <3

25th February 2010

The Battle for the SEXY HAIR... part 2


...and I'm only online right now because I'm waiting for the glue to dry~ :'D

Last night I took the wefts I made myself, and began sewing/glueing them into the wig.
As you can see in the progress pics, I've glued/sewn one under the front of the wig to thicken the fringe (...though more thickening might be needed xD)
I've also glued/sewn some more wefts into the sides to thicken the wig at the top...

I just hope they'll survive styling... xD

(Note - The wig colour looks a bit wierd in the pics, because of fail lighting :'D sorry~)

Also! My pocketwatch has been shipped 8D
Hoping it'll arrive soon!

24th February 2010

The Battle for the SEXY HAIR... part 1

Literally.... Styling this wig is looking to be like trying to win a battle...

A very one-sided battle ;____;

The wig I got (shown at the side~) is 51 inches long, and completely unstyled...(and guess what? Its still not quite long enough for Jack&#039;s hair xD *facepalm*)

I&#039;ve already cut some of the longer bits at the front, and added a few layers at the back; I&#039;ve also made some of my own wefts using the hair that I cut, to thicken up the wig around the top because its a little on the thin side for Jack&#039;s hair.

Once I&#039;ve sewn in the wefts and styled the front, it shouldnt be too difficult to plait the back... I hope :&#039;D

Now, back to coursework xD *rolls away*
