Eurocosplay qualifier 2012

1st February 2012: Flag This is just... so. slow.
All natural silk (about £120 worth) appliquéd in layers, bit by bit by bit.
Since it's silk, I have to interface it all for it to be sturdy enough to appliqué, and even then it pulls on edges and corners pretty annoyingly at times.

1st February 2012: Gloves of dooooom. I really truly hate making gloves. I can't hand sew at all so I altered the pattern to machine sew it.
The silver panel is silk, which is satin stitch appliquéd, and press fasteners to attach the gloves to the jacket.
The bottom picture is the chaps, which in comparison were wonderfully easy... XD

1st February 2012: Pilot suit progress! This is a quick overview of the pilot suit. The jacket is 3\4 sleeve tailored jacket [loved the back panels so much] which front/back/trim appliqué. I wasn't happy with the way the FEMC turned out and found another reference picture with more detail where it's covered by an honours panel so going with that.
The trousers are just a normal pair of trousers with an extended waistband which will popper up in a mock corset fashion.

Hey, was nice to meet you when you came to the cosplay desk to collect your prize ^^ I missed the actual masq because I was helping out backstage so I missed seeing your costume in full - it's nice to see the pictures! I like the way you've paid a lot of attention to what goes underneath his main outfit as well. Congrats on placing in the qualifier and look forward to seeing your Euro costume in October :)

That flag was possibly THE most beautiful prop I have ever had the extreme pleasure to judge. Also jeez your applique was so precise. I'm very happy with our choice :)

This was sublime to watch Ben, and you said you needed help with the sword work, listen I can help you clean up most of the performance later if you want- otherwise : you did a BLOODY MARVELOUS JOB! Well done!
