9th June 2012: Knife Jacket and Throwing Knives Hey guys!
The next plan of action is to make the vest and throwing knives. A friend linked me to these:
http://www.medievalcollectibles.com/p-5572-larp-throwing-knife-with-leather-new-edition.aspx
And they're the most screen-accurate items I've found. However, I am on a very tight budget so I'll be using it as a reference to make my own. I'm pretty sure Dad has some woodboard in his workshop and I can just papier mache from then on.

29th May 2012: Slowly making progress! The jacket is slooooowly coming along, thank goodness! Mum brought me a sewing machine too, so thank you mother :3

20th May 2012: Starting the grey lining tomorrow! Alrighty, so, tomorrow I'll be buying and starting to sew the grey lining onto the jacket, which means I should have everything done before Collectormania! \o/

10th May 2012: Boots The boots have arrived! And they are so comfy omg.
Now just to polish them brown.

4th May 2012: So, heh... just measured the binding... Uh.... Yeah, so, turns out ima need 8m of grey binding and 5m of orange...
Fun, fun, fun.

29th April 2012: Now that I have the jacket, I just need to get a new t-shirt. The t-shirt is an utterly different colour to the jacket, which I'm a bit miffed about but I can't really complain as the t-shirt was only £2.

Ah well, to Primark!
