22nd October 2012: Dry Run Myself,Josh and Charlotte had a costume dry run yesterday. Some issues were noted on all costumes but all in all it was a great success.
21st October 2012: Bracers Finished the bracers by painting the backs and lacing them. Also finished off the belt system.
20th October 2012: Getting Close To Finishing Finished painting the swords and daggers and second set of throwing knives. Started on the belt system and sword frogs.
19th October 2012: Fixed Slipping Greaves I have added eyelets to my trousers so the greaves can be tied to them stopping them from slipping down.
18th October 2012: Large Potion Pouch While waiting for the paint layers to dry on the swords I have made a large potion pouch.
13th October 2012: Dry run Ok so after tonights dry run I have realised a few things.
1) The leather straps I bought on purpose because I thought it would look more real than rope snaps and I cant tighten anything tight. So I will need to go with rope anyway :/
2) I really need to find my braces that have completely vanished or make new ones :/
3) The tops on my greaves slip down as I walk so I will need to think of a way to fix that. Still need to make gauntlets but other than getting the pouches on, throwing knives on and extra little bits a pieces its all looking good :D
13th October 2012: Greaves Completed Greaves made
7th October 2012: Short swords started Started the short swords today and also layered some filler on the daggers.
