15th May 2011: Top Work in Progress Right Basically, I've added the black parts and the zip, which are both attached to each other. There are slits round the side so I can fit the blue 'belt' around it (which is a piece of blue material) which I'm going to attach after sewing the whole thing together tonight. I know it's short, I didn't realize until after I put it on, but it's not as short as my first attempt. It's still pinned, hence why it doesn't look as good, but it should look better after I've sewn it together on the sewing machine.

8th May 2011: Extra Information Had to measure myself and the top to make sure that I'd get the right length to cut the top at. So far it's around 15/16cm, including the neck. It should be alright for the zip to be attached onto. Had to be very careful with the link down the middle that it was straight. Might cut the bottom again to make sure it's in line together.
Any questions Just as.

8th May 2011: Sleeves I've had to take the original sleeves off the top. I was going to use them for the collar, but that didn't work out. I've folded the edges over to get a nicer finish and for them too look smaller and seeing as in the references show that the Player doesn't really have sleeves, I'm trying to get them as hidden as possible so that it's accurate.

8th May 2011: Top Collar Basically I used some of the yellow material I had left over from trying to make the first one and I used that for the collar. It's two rectangular pieces of material, pinned around the collar and then together. I've had to find the top down so that I can get a nice edge and that it's not too tall. Can't fit my head through it when it's zipped up, but it just needs to be loose around my neck, but not that loose or too tight. It's currently pinned there and I'm only going to sew it when I have the zip and detailing pinned on to.

25th April 2011: Detailing for the Top I've basically finished that part. Which means all I need to do is make the top, get a suitable zip for it and then attach it all together. It should be finished after that! I just need to find some material for it that won't cost too much.
Getting the material for the boots tomorrow! Should go well. Then I need to find some lacey type stuff to thread through it.

23rd April 2011: Top Jesus Christ I HATE this top. =.= First time I made it too small, this time I've got fabric...which is kind of Orange. I bloody hope this works otherwise I'm stuffed. It's gone well so far, but I've still got quite a bit to do. Which is annoying me. Though I've had a brain wave. If I do a mock up with the orange material and get that perfect, buy some yellow material and then make it out of that it should be fine! Hopefully I'll get the material for the Boot Covers on Tuesday. I just have to remind my friend to bring it in.

19th April 2011: Things This costumes been coming together rather quickly from when I first started it. I still need to make the top, even though I mucked it up the first time, I need to buy the material and the zip to finish it. My friends giving me some type of Leatherette so that I can make the covers for the boots. I just hope I can get it done in time.

21st March 2011: Updates This costumes really coming together quite quickly.
Armwarmers: Base ones are done. I just need to add things onto the like the belts, the silver edging and stuff.
Trousers: Now ordered, just waiting for them to arrive and then I can edit them when they do.
Wig: Plaits are done. Just need to try and get the buns done sometime.

Oh yeah. Goggles are done. Swimming ones always work don't they? Just need to find them.

DuskatNight - 4th June 2011
Thanks, someone had to do it one day. :3 Fun? Pft. xD The shorts were a size to small, the top was too short, boots kept falling down so did the red and brown arm parts. xD Hence why I'm re-doing parts.
