you can try using a cotton drill instead of felt (you might also get a bit toasty in felt!!), it's good stuff! i used it for zagi, not too overly expencive, as long as you buy it from the right place :D

Ahhh, good old cotton drill. I'll look around for it or do you have a really good place that does it for dirt cheap? =D

I know right? Only just meet on the last night. I agree! Maybe turn up for the last day of uni in our cosplays. I'll definitely wear this for Ayacon again.

I really like your Ingus dude! It's really good! Love the structure of the outfit! How did you do the hat?

BB Dubs posted on 16 February, 2012 - 21:37
Sorry for the late reply! I used a black base hat I bought from BHS. I then glued a cardboard on the front and back to extend the length. Measuring the red fabric around the hat took a while though... It was the most difficult item of all to make, but it's also my favourite part of the costume.

Progress Journal

23rd March 2011

All done

Just finished the sword earlier this evening. I'm a little satisfied with the finished.

The blade is massive and rubbish. The handle is short and the sword is really heavy to hold (due to half a block of clay I used on it). Details were reduced because it wouldn't fit.
But the thing I like about the sword is the gold effect on it. Whee.

Thus confirms my completion of this costume.

4th March 2011

I have a cape!

Jacket is done. The rest: Hat, cape, top and Salamander Sword.

The cape is a bit iffty. In the reference image, the cape covers around the shoulders. But that part just sticks out when I put it on. Will get this sorted today.

Also, I'm going to do a lot of exercises for the next coming days before Kita (I have gained a lot over CNY) D:

16th February 2011

Semi-hiatus

It's been a while since I've been making the hat (and it's proven to be the most difficult piece!)

I'll be borrowing the wig I did for Falsetto for this cosplay. The wig is really frustrating! The front part doesn't sit with my face properly. I cut the front part with my rubbish skills and applied manga head putty all over. It looks slightly better.

Ffff, the hat is going to cover it =/ Once I've finish writing up my final essay, I can resume fully on the costume (which is two weeks time!)

4th January 2011

Modifying hat

I've added extra parts to make the hat a little bigger to match the original picture. While it looks awesome, covering the fabric over is proving difficult D: I was initially planning to piece the patterns together before sticking it on the hat, but erm... no. I might have to piece the pieces together a different way.

Yosh

Okay, I think I&#039;ll merge the two tops together and a seperate cape. So far, I got pretty much the main bits to make the whole costume + cheap base hat.

I just need to know how to make the hat...

8th November 2010

Should start now

My next term after Christmas will be hellish, which is probably best if I start on this right now (that is as soon as I get moneh rolling in).

I'd figured I'll be needing 4 to 5metres of red felt. Or is there something else I could use?....
