7th April 2012: PROGRESSION Nearly done, just need to add detail and the fur trim around the boots
6th April 2012: PROGRESS ... progress being the decision to use my hair
...and the waistcoat.
The wig I got was all wrong in colour, so even though I'll have roots and my hair will be a tad longer, I'm using my own hair for this cosplay. Well, for KitaCon anyway.
I accidentally ended up looking like Jamie from Doctor Who in this webcam, I'm not sure if I mind.
1st April 2012: Over a year since I did anything to this... oh dear. Basically, I recently ordered a wig for this (... 3 weeks ago), praying it arrives in time for KitaCon. I also bought a first waistcoat which I think looks great.
Will do some more material shopping soon, and will probably dye some linen or something to get the colours right. Also need to get a new brown eyeliner pencil to add the freckles... or go out in the sun and get some of my own :P
8th February 2011: Material I went to Birmingham to buy some material for Hiccup and there was a horrible lack of fur-like material to buy. I did buy some, but when i tried to make it look more rugged and textured, it just wasn't working. And it's the wrong colour. However, it does work for the boots quite well. I've gone on ebay and found some material that will probably work better, it's a little more yellowy than Hiccups (his is a more reddish one) and I also found some leather like material for his boots. Will order very soon (I need money).
