Magnus Bane RETIRED (Book 3 Frock Coat) - The Mortal Instruments


It's so hard to pick Magnus outfits... I think he has more costume changes than anyone else in the novels!
I eventually plugged for this one as I wanted to try my hand at a frock coat (it failed badly sadly so I'll have to make a better pattern next time).
Next costumes on the list for Magnus are the Party variant from the first book and Battle outfit from 3rd.

Is this the final battle coat? 8O

Not quite no :P I checked that one and he either wears leather armour in the battle or this long coat but no makeup or hair spiky so... though I will get to them eventually, I'd like to do the more colourful versions first :)

Aaah, I totally forgot that he didn't have all his glitz applied in battle. This is a colorful one then, excellent x3 Cannot wait to see it/possibly rejoin you!

Ahaha... I'll have to finish the outfit first :P But yes, I'd love that! Just be nice to be recognised as it's not a very well known series!

Jacket almost done.

All hemmed and sewn, just need to add on last decorative details like cuffs and lapels. It looks awful but I no longer have the patience to remake this.

jacket halfway there

I messed up majorly with the coat... it's definitely not going to look right but I haven't got enough patience to remake it from scratch so just trying to fix it. All else fails I'll probably just wear it for the expo and then make a new one later for Magnus rewears

14th February 2013


The waistcoat is half made, mostly just lining to do on it. I found the most gorgeous suede style fabric today for the jacket - just need to find some nice purple for the back insert and I can start making the jacket.

29th December 2012


Cut out the waistcoat fabric today, ready to be sewn up. Can't do any more now until I buy the fabric for the coat. Only other things need to get now are contacts and more makeup

2nd December 2012


Wig is bought and styled. I was working out the design for Magnus's coat today... I didn't want it to look the same as other Victorian frock coats so I'm adding some embellishments to make it more interesting. May also add detailing to the coat if I get time. Found I already have the PERFECT material for his waistcoat already. I did have the perfect black for his coat but sadly not enough of it. Will go fabric hunting for him after Xmas probably
