Video update for kitacon: http://youtu.be/OXBjakuMbzo

Cogsworth needed another outfit for Ame so I set about making one. This one was more Circus themed and inspired a lot by the movie Chicago.

The coat is made from a red satin I bought in london on a visit. It's a duchess satin but the drape of it is much better than what fabric land offers. It is made using traditional suit making techniques including 4 welted pockets and a hand sewn lining. It's pretty much steampunk pornography.

The corset was another fabric find in london and has 21 steel bones. I made matt cut them so he would feel like a man.

The trousers are made of a light cotton to try to keep Matt cool when wearing the costume. They have satin strips down the side and a satin waist band to keep in the dressy theme. They also have pockets!

The hat was made with 2 layers of buckram and duchess satin with an applique clock on the side. 3 arrows were made from red brocade and supported with more buckram so they would stick out the side.

The new head was made from plastazote so it would be a lot more comfortable for matt to wear and have better vision. It has a zip down the side for easy removal, and the mouth can come off so he can drink. I didn't have enough time to make a mini hat to go underneath, but he'll have one next time as it makes wearing a bigger hat much easier.

The bowtie was made using an amazing orange and red striped silk

The shirt, gloves and boots were all bought.
