26th March 2012: Slow-press (Geddit, cause it's progress... but it's slow! *shot*)
Ahem, this costume is pretty close to being finished now, thanks to a very productive meetup with Hannah. The shorts are complete, the hat is finished (and is too big for my head but hush) and the jacket is finished bar a few buttons and readjusting the tassles a bit.
So all that's left is to finish off the Cravat and make the bustle. This will probably be the most time consuming part of this costume as it involves about 17m of ribbon being attatched to material *sigh*
18th March 2012: Boots The boots for this cosplay are now done!!
I was really struggling for ideas as to how to do the boots for this seeing as they're quite an unusual style (and I suck at making boot covers). Luckily I remembered that I had a pair of boots that I bought years ago but had never really worn that were the exact same style as Ciel's boots only white!
I decided to use acrylic paint to paint them, as it's cheap and covers pretty well. I might do another coat or two the night before I wear this just to make sure they stay looking pretty all day xD

Haha, he's coming together.. slowly. Whether or not I wear him to Birmingham Expo depends on whether I can scape some money together, but I'll be getting pics as soon as it's done either way xD

It's one of my favourite of Ciel's outfits xD Thanks! I'm always worried about suiting him so that means a lot :)
