Merlin ('Official Ceremonial Robes of the Servants of Camelot') - Merlin (BBC)


 


So, this is the 2nd reincarnation of this costume :D
Pretty much everything is remade or new, so I shall list it all here:

Shirt (new): blue linen
Pants (new): bought from darkblade.co.uk
Tabbard (remade): linen with hand embroidered dragon and new trim
Belt (same): bought and altered by me
Cloak (same): red velvet with green satin, various ribbons and buttons
Hat (same): red velvet with green satin, various ribbons and feathers
Wig (same): bought, dyed and styled by me
Boots (new): bought from eBay
Socks (same): bought from...somewhere

I love this costume so very much <3
A lot of care went into getting it as detailed as possible.
It's not perfect, but I think it's pretty close.
The only thing I'd like to change is the length of the cloak, but as you only ever see it from the waist up, I have no idea how long it's supposed to be :/

This was awesome fun to wear at Manchester MCM Expo, and CerysKitty made an awesome Nimueh.
And major mega epic hanks to Izzy for all the photos <3!!

BOOTS ARRIVED!

FUCKFUCKFUCK THEY'RE PERFECT! LIKE, PERFECTION. God I love them so much *_* And as such, shall be wearing them everyday until expo :D But in all serious, they looked a bit off in the ebay photo, but they're actually a much nicer, darker brown. So happy with them 8D

15th May 2011

New Boots

I just bought some awesome new boots off of eBay :D They're faux leather, but AT LEAST THEY'RE NOT FAUX SUEDE and they have straps and are flat and are the right size and won't murder my feet, hopefully.

17th April 2011

Trim

Soooo, I originally made my own trim for the tabard, but through the awesome powah of teamwork, CerysKitty managed to find me the perfect trim on eBay. So that should arrive soon and then I can get on with remakin' dis shit.

16th October 2010

DONE DONE DOOONEEE~

HOLORDY AND BOYHOWDY ITS FINALLY DONE 8'D My god this was a project and a half D> But it is complete after £498364501934 and god knows how many hours. There may need to be a little bit of work done on the hat the night before, and I've edited the cloak a bit so it hangs better instead of having huge stupid shoulders, but I ain't touching anything else. Though it would be nice to have accurate boots at some point, and I'd buy some IF THEY WEREN'T VIVIENNE FKING WESTWOOD AND COST £700 A PAIR D<

7th October 2010

BREECHES

Breeches come from a can, they wereout there by a man. . . wait, no. Breeches come from darkbladeuk.co.uk, and are at the post office atm 'cause as usual, I wan't in when they were delivered Y_Y So I shall be off to collect them tomorrow and when I get off my lazy arse and finish this bloody dragon embroidery, I'll take some photos. The good thing is that I don't have to buy anything else for this costume, so I just need to finishes off the tabard and shirt and I'm done -rejoice- 8D

10th September 2010

Tassles!

Yessssssss! My friendly neighbourhood fabric store actually had some gold tassles in! So now the cloak is 100% complete 8D But it's all packed up atm, and so's my mannequin 'cause I'm moving in 2 days, so there won't be any photos until I'll settled >_<

30th August 2010

FEATHERS!

I've bought £30 worth of ostrich and peacock feathers 8'D I've got 4 large red ones, 4 large green ones, 2 smaller red ones and 3 peacock. OTL. I've also bought the ribbon for the hat and collar of the cloack, but the shops round here suck, so they're not at all accurate. But, they're gold, black and red and as close as I could get. Nyehhh.

23rd August 2010

IKEA

Yes, IKEA. I went there today for. . . no reason at all, BUT I have managed to find myself fabric for my new shirt (after the other one shrank in the wash goihzdj''jhs) and also red fabric for the red tunic with the dragon embroidery ^o^ Still need to get red velvet, green satin, ribbons and feathers for the hat and if I have enough money, I may remake the pants out of a nicer faux suede to go with the nicer shirt. . . THAT HAT IS GOING ON BRADLEY'S HEAD. I DON'T CARE WHAT HE SAYS, I'M GONNA SHOVE IT ON HIM.

9th July 2010

Fabric.

After much searching, I have found royel blue linen! Abakhan, I love you so much! So, the plan is to remake the shirt, as the one I have now, I washed and it may have shrunk slightly. . . I need to rewatch the episode, but I believe the tunic to be linen aswell (I'm embroidering that dragon by hand; It will kill me). However, the cape I'm not sure. I thought it was wool at first, but I looked harder and it looked more like velvet, so I'm a bit stumped :/ And that trim's gonna be hell to find >_<
