3rd June 2013: Fur-tastrophe! Okay, so about 2 days prior to me travelling to the con, I was having a serious, stress-inducing problem with my fur collar.
The fur I had brought was too short and I wanted something longer. It looked stupid with it being ridiculously short.
So, I sacrificed colour for length and got some new fur. It's very rough in this shot but I personally think it looks much better and considering what I had available, it turned out pretty well.
5th May 2013: Tea-Stained Fur! I've managed to buy so lovely fur fabric for Snow's collar, but it was a little too light. My first idea was to tea-stain it/soak it in tea for several hours, but I was doubtful it'd work (because of the synthetic hair etc.). Luckily, however, it's worked! It's now much more of the colour I want it to be.
I'm still planning on adding a little bit more to try on the tester strip.
27th April 2013: Jodhpurs My jodhpurs arrived! So here's a photo of them along with the boots I'll be using for Snow. :)
22nd April 2013: Pattern All Cut Out! Cut out my pattern, I just need to stain everything up, seam it and sew it together!
22nd April 2013: Fabric So the previous journal was so old that the fabric I wanted was no longer available at the fabric store I was going to use.
SO! I've had to resort to buying pieces of chamois leather (used for cars) and sewn them together, which I've lined out in the picture. I've also stained the material to make it look for weathered and distressed, which I've shown in the picture as well! :)
18th July 2012: Fabric found Found some pretty damn good fabric at the local shop so hopefully I can make a start on the leather top.
