8th August 2011: 1st attempt making boot covers This is the 1st time I have ever made boot covers before, and to be honest... they are terrible XP I'm not even sure if they are gonna hold together.
I didn't really know how to make them, but a cosmode sugested I trace round the boot and use that as a template. It sort of worked, but I really need to improve on them later or just buy some next time
25th November 2010: Jacket nearly done I have been working almost non stop on trying to get this costume together.
The pattern I had was not completly accurate to jin, so i decided to cut out the material to how the pattern was and then adapt it later. I had to bring the arm holes in more because jin's go quite far into his back and I had to make the slight gap in the back of the jacket. I also had to expand out the red on the front of jin's coat ( if that makes sense). Now I'm on to lining the jacket and making all the accessories. Unfortunatly I have ran out of the royal blue material, and the market doesn't currently have it in stock, so I will have to wait to make the sleves, but I can soon move on to the next layer of Jin's costume.
I've ordered the wig from Jenifer wigs on ebay, because even though it wasn't a jin wig, it looks better than the jin wigs you can buy and was better value for monney.
8th September 2010: starting out I've got my Materials and my patterns now. I'm using two patern from simplicity (since they are half price currently) Ones a coat pattern which looks a lot likes Jin's and the other is a cape/ star wars pattern for Jin's undershirt.
I haven't had time yet to start cutting it out yet, but I will be starting soon.
I have found a wig on the net that looks like ti should be good for Jin, and it's a lot cheaper than the original one I found which was about £40 ( and it's better quality from a seller I can trust because i have used them before.)
Once I have got so much underway I need to start thinking of how to make Yukinessa and practice my crazy face.
