12th December 2008: done for the moment Ok so the main outfit is done. Gun, goggles, hat, jacket, skirt, random accessories. I could add more to it but I didn't have time, I probably will punk it up a little more for minami as I'm going to bring it along, but it should be fine for the xmas party
24th November 2008: more progress Hat done, guns taken apart and first coat of paint nearly done too. Pieces for jacket cut and awaiting sewing.
21st November 2008: purchasing Have now bought, some watch parts, copper wire, broach backs, plastic guns, metallic paint in gold copper and gun-metal, lace tights, lace and chain hair flower, spare chain, welding goggles and a purple top. Oh and hat it nearly done, just needs embellishment!
20th November 2008: progress Skirt is done, had to amend the pattern slightly, and lengthen the top half as a) it was way to short and b) the hem sat in the wrong place on my legs. I know it looks at little weird now, but when the jacket is on (*cough* and made *cough*) it will look a lot better
17th November 2008: skirt nearly done, a quick hem at the bottom and the waistband needs sewing on then the skirt is done! next step, the jacket :?
13th November 2008: more fabric finally found some netting for my fascinator. Only took two lunch breaks, four fabric shops (one with an incredibly rude sales assistant. mind you that's why none of us shop in there much) and I found loads in the last shop (srsly black white and ivory in loads of styles!)
12th November 2008: fabric bough spent my lunch break in fabric land (again) got all but the netting for my fascinator (they don't do the right style of netting). Got some awesome buttons that should go nicely! Now to track down some accessories, ebay here I come!
