Crikey, we didn't expect this much of a response! :) Thanks chaps, we'll push on on this once we've got Hit Girl out of the way.

I'm sure this will be great ^^

Thanks all! Progress has been a bit slow as we've moved house, but we should get properly going on this shortly. Still aiming to get it ready for October Expo...

Fantastic!! I cannot wait to see this!! Good luck getting it all finalised!! so excited for October Expo now ^.^

Starbucks dad posted on 1 October, 2012 - 12:09
:) Thanks. Finally got going, big decision is do we try for the sword as well..eep. Els' all for it but time, time, time.....

Toshi-chan posted on 1 October, 2012 - 13:13
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.

Starbucks dad posted on 2 October, 2012 - 18:26
Hmm. Good point.... *scurries off to read the rules*

very nice, how is she wearing her hair?

Starbucks dad posted on 29 October, 2012 - 20:44
Thanks. Went for plaits, but her hair's not really long enough to pull it off. Must get hair extensions for next time.

Ahhh your little girl came up to me backstage when I was dressed as Arya and she was so sweet! <3 Sadly I missed seeing this in person but it looks adorable! ^^

nanahara posted on 29 October, 2012 - 22:46
she really does suit Arya so well ^^, nicely done indeed

Starbucks dad posted on 30 October, 2012 - 19:41
Thank you both. MoonLily, thanks for spending some time with her on Sunday - it was very kind of you.

Fishyfins posted on 1 November, 2012 - 23:09
She made a perfect Arya! was nice seeing her on sunday, however briefly :)

Sephirayne posted on 2 November, 2012 - 01:28
She makes an amazing Arya. Great job.

Starbucks dad posted on 11 November, 2012 - 16:27
Thank you!

carsec posted on 4 February, 2013 - 16:36
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 :-)

Starbucks dad posted on 4 February, 2013 - 20:06
It's Syrio's hair and beard that's stopping me!

Numta posted on 9 April, 2013 - 10:54
Looking great as always! Hope things pan out making needle! Sword making can be a nightmare >.< lol

Starbucks dad posted on 13 April, 2013 - 16:35
Thanks Numta - making the "proper" sword seems to be going easier than the other one - so fingers crossed we might actually finish this one!

Siouxsie James posted on 5 May, 2013 - 09:52
Awesome and just adorable!! :D

Starbucks dad posted on 5 May, 2013 - 10:17

Progress Journal

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


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
