24th November 2013: Wore it anyway! Still not completed to the level I want, but wore it to Thought Bubble anyway.......
16th November 2012: Delays. Got tied up in another project for too long....so probably not wearing this for Thought Bubble, but will do to another event later. Bah!
6th September 2012: Buckles next. Pretty well done the Jerkin, just some interior finishing to complete. Vambraces and buckles are the next things to do. Gondorian buckles are of a distinctive pattern and used throughout the costume.
30th August 2012: Began Started re cutting an old kaftan into the under tunic, and have made the leather edged tabard that goes over it.
29th December 2011: Beginning I am wary of posting too many "planned" cossies especialy as I have had a couple go awry and end up on the back burner for some length of time. However, after watching the LOTR DVDs over the holiday, I was inspired to go for a relevant cosplay, and this one looks do'able without more than a reasonable effort. In fact, it is one of those where I already have significant pieces of the kit. Cloak, boots, sword, bow and undershirt, and materials in stock for a lot of the rest, leather and fabric. So, see how this one goes!

Alas, real life got in the way a bit, and I will not have it to the level I want in time for Thought Bubble....I am therfore considering wearing my Steampunk gear instead.
