Magnus Bane RETIRED
The Mortal Instruments

Cosplayer: InfiniteJester

Variant: Book 3 Frock Coat

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

14th April 2013: 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.

13th April 2013: 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: progress 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: progress 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: progess 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

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!
