Gakupo Kamui - SOLD ON

Cosplayer: InfiniteJester

Variant: Madness of Duke Venomania

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

5th January 2012: FINISHED well apart from minor wig styling and ordering contact lenses. The sash proved super easy at least and the epaulets decided to behave themselves and glue onto the magnets so touch wood, TIS DONE

3rd January 2012: coat finished so the coat is totally done now. just have to glue on the epaulets and make the sash for the waist. also some more styling to the wig and order the contact lens and then its done!

22nd December 2011: more progress poppers attached so the front attaches now. started on the ribbon

18th December 2011: ALMOSTTTT Attached the cuffs which were luckily painless and didn't cause any problems. all thats left to do now for the coat is make the epaulets, attach some poppers for the front and decorate with the ribbon and buttons

13th December 2011: procrastination managed to waste half a day over working out his collar. finally got there in the end as the vylene refused to work so I had to end up doubling over the fabric and it took a while for it to sit right. finally did it though.

7th December 2011: progress iv been working on this on and off but as I break up for xmas now is when the real work will be done on this. The whole of the coat is sewn together now and lined, just working on hemming atm.

20th November 2011: progress ordered a brooch for the jabot though it will need some customisation when it arrives. Sleeves not attached - i would upload a picture to show this but it kinda looks a mess atm until it's all hemmed and neatened up. stuff left to do on the jacket... collar, cuffs, hemming and decoration.

21st October 2011: more progress sleeves done now aside from being attached which will do when the main coat is done. The main body of the coat is tacked together now (see pictures) and will be sewn once all final alterations have been made. I opted to keep a slit from the waist down at the sides to add flow. Still need to add the cuffs, decoration details, collar and sort out the front too of course.. but its taking shape. also bought a new cravat which i'll prob end up using for this too.

7th October 2011: boots they arrived and omg they're so tall... I have no idea yet if I will be able to balance enoough in them by February to be able to wear them but fingers crossed as I'm planning to practice ALOT. It's more the fact that they have stilettos on then the actual height as I'm not used to them. If all fails I will go back to my trusty 3 inches

2nd October 2011: tacking cut out all the material aside from some more lining that i need to buy as i ran out. tacked the sleeves and will sew up later this week

30th September 2011: o my poor wallet... my loan came through so ordered the wig and boots and bought the fabric for the jacket though i've prob overestimated on the size. its not as shiny as in the picture, that's just the flash being funny

8th August 2011: made patterns with a little help i made the pattern today for the coat, and feel a lot happier that it actually looks doable now, most likely be scouting the fabric sooon

17th June 2011: gr no money atm to start this but iv been workin out all the stuff il be needing.. if money proves a mssiv problem nearer the time then i have trousers, shirt and boots already that i cuddd use but im not totally happy with them as they wont be completely accurate. ideally i want to get some of the old fashioned style trousers and some boots with massive heels so i can be a bit taller. otherwise iv found the perfect wig on ebay for this costume
