Costume Information

Cost : 800
Awards : None
Time Taken : 1year aprox Build time, over a four year period

This costume is roughly 60 percent hand sewn. It has second hand riding boots to which I added green leather at the top. custom made period breeches (which can be cold if stood in the wrong direction to wind) A linin altered shirt, hand made silk scarf, hand made satin waistcoat, hand made jacket and hand built ring.

This costume was my first in which I made entirely myself, pretty much a crash course in sewing was undertaken.

all the trim was hand stiched and took roughly two weeks to do. Because it is silver metalic thread I did often get static shocks, which was fun.

props is currently a ring which is worn on his right hand, which I made using card and Milliput.

I will be adding other props and overcoat.

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


The Over Coat (Posted 11th March 2012)

This is going to be fun.

I am having a total mental block as I try to remember how I combined 3 patterns for the main jacket.

I have also never worked with wool before, am not looking forward to that

The extras (Posted 8th February 2012)

Finally after a couple of years break.....this costume took my heart and (& occasionally blood)
to make. I will be adding the long over coat made out of wool and props.

Especially the googles....which I cannot wait to have a crack at as there will be new skills
