Arya Stark
Game of Thrones

Cosplayer: Starbucks dad

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

13th April 2013: Getting closer.... Very rough cut, but with a bit of sandpaper (and some luck) we might get there this time.

13th April 2013: Laying out So we measured out and then cut into vaguely the right proportions then marked out for further cutting.

13th April 2013: Base material 2 Eat your heart out Mikken!

13th April 2013: Base material 1 We've finished decorating....

8th April 2013: Then again.. So having failed horribly at the practice sword, we're going to try and do Needle because that will be soooo much easier (won't it?)

6th April 2013: No sword :( Our sword making skills are poo......

30th October 2012: Try again Switched back to in progress as we're determined to make the sword and give this one a proper airing.

29th October 2012: Ack - crappy trains Ended up late getting to Expo due to train delays, so after the mad rush to get the costume finished, poor El had about an hour in it before having to get changed for the masquerade...


27th October 2012: Crikey that was close.. Mad rush today to make the blouse and finish the trousers due to other things on. Icky moment when we released we'd sewed the sleeves on back to front (oh, how we, thinking about it we didn't). Just need to tighten everything up and add another drawstring thingy and we're done. No sword for Expo though :(

1st October 2012: At last Hacked and slayed the trousers to a better fit and started sewing up...

23rd July 2012: Material Found the material! We can finally start making and cutting...

19th June 2012: And so it begins... Starting working how to do this.

The top looks more difficult than we thought (those ruffs at the top) but we'll work it out

Thanks. Finally got going, big decision is do we try for the sword as well..eep. Els' all for it but time, time, time.....

It would be amazing to have the sword as well for photos but the expo hall is pretty strict about props so you might have a nuisance with it if you're coming and going a lot.

very nice, how is she wearing her hair?

Starbucks dad avatar

Starbucks dad - 29th October 2012
Thanks. Went for plaits, but her hair's not really long enough to pull it off. Must get hair extensions for next time.

yes, the syrio/arya proyect will be awesome you must do it some of these years... GoT is a classic so not big deal if it takes for ever :-)

Looking great as always!

Hope things pan out making needle! Sword making can be a nightmare >.< lol

Starbucks dad avatar

Starbucks dad - 13th April 2013
Thanks Numta - making the "proper" sword seems to be going easier than the other one - so fingers crossed we might actually finish this one!
