2nd December 2012: Improved Gloves I added fake leather straps to the welding gloves so that they can be tightened slightly, as it seems to be impossible to buy small welding gloves.
23rd October 2012: Finished I finished the final part of the costume today - the cigarette packet that goes under the goggle straps
13th October 2012: Spear fail I tried putting together the shaft of the collapsible spear today but the bolt and hinge design was too loose and the finished spear would have looked rubbish. I decided to cut my losses and stop doing any more work on the spear as I still have the dynamite prop. Plus on the brigt side it is one less thing to transport and carry around.
16th September 2012: Gaiters completed Finished the gaiters today. Sewing the leather straps to the denim took longer than expected as I discovered that I had accidentaly sewn through both parts of the denim on the first gaiter. This meant I had to unpick the stitching and start again, paying more attention to what I was doing.
13th September 2012: Jacket completed I finally finsihed modifying the jacket - I hadn't appreciated how slow it would be to sew through multiple layers of Denim by hand. With this part finished I could wear the costume as it is but I still have some smaller components to work on.

Thanks for the comment. I am planning to make a collapsible version of the spear so that I can transport it to the event without any problems. I also have the dynamite for his limit break. I am planning to go to the Final Fantasy photoshot if I can find out when and where it is taking place so I might see you there

there is a group called THE FINAL FANTASY ROUND UP on facebook which im a member of they're great with advice and stuff ( theres a few other cids going too , mainly advent children varients) . if it helps i can put up some pic under "improved/updated cid " of my spear and list how i made each part of the spear including how i used a hinge (bit wonkey but i had no other idear on how to make it portable so to speak). I made a dynamite too ! :D it looked odd as it was and old balloon pump lol . if you want to ask how i made any of my costume id be happy to help but ya seem to be doing great anyways :D

I have heard about the THE FINAL FANTASY ROUND UP but I am not on facebook. I think I will be ok making the hinged spear (I'm going to need it to fold in two places to fit in my suitcase) but I would be interested to know how you are making and attaching the spear head.

Looking forward to seeing it.
I replied to your question on my page for Faris,

Sat and Sun, yes. Not sure if I am doing her Friday as well or not yet.
