24th May 2012: So much to do and so little time With 8 days to the convention, and only 7 of those days to actually finish the costume its all hands on deck for this costume. After coming down with a nasty chest infection last week progress has been fairly slow but it seems the antibiotics have finally started to kick in.
So here's my to do list:
- Hot glue nocks to arrows
- Respray tops of arrows
- Finish cutting out fletching and adding detailing
- Hot glue fletching to arrows....carefully
- Made cardboard base
- Make fabric to same specs as cardboard base
- Add silver lines to fabric
- Find a way to attach the two together
- Add quiver strap (still need to buy something to make it from)
- Finish adding grey lines that can be added to outer jacket before sewing together
- Make up lining
- Attach lining and outer jacket
- Add remaining grey lines
- Add press studs and cord to hood and waist
I was going to add pockets to my jacket but have decided against this as its adding more work to something I already don't have a lot of time to do. I reckon as long as I can plan this out properly I should be able to get it all done, and also with a little help from my boyfriend.

The outfit is perfect and I love Katniss, a powerful person, the wig looks a bit too big and not really real hair but a good effort and her hairstyle is hard to find.

Thanks cheerDaniel17 I actually have a new wig now but typically forgot to add the new pics. I'm still not overly happy with the new wig but its better then the old one.
