The tunic looks brilliant! I saw the pictures on tumblr and the braided front looks great, as does the red section of the collar. I'm excited to see this when it's all together! :D

Final touches

The last things I need to do (other than tidy up some threads here and there) are the wrist-cuff things he wears. I couldn't get a decent screencap of them so I'm going by what I can see and guessing the rest - and all I could see was red and silver, so that's what I went with. Nothing fancy, just silver pleather and red cotton mix, given a little shape and strength by a strip of cardboard.

Only done one so far as getting the needle through those layers (and after eight and a half hours of hand-sewing before that) has killed my hands, so I'll be taking a break and will finish the other one tomorrow, perhaps.

Belt - complete

After many, many long hours of hand sewing, my belt for the tunic is finally complete~
I used the same brown cotton mix as the braid for the base of the belt, and then this wonderful black pvc-esque fabric labelled "shark fin" for the top layer. It's only attached at one end (I'm still considering adding a few stitches at the back) so I can pull it a little tighter once the tunic is on, to help give the whole thing the right shape, and I've gone with velcro to attach it together because it's easiest.

Tunic - mostly complete

UGH FINALLY SOME PROGRESS. I've had the fabric sitting around for ages but I've only just found the time to start. I haven't entirely finished his tunic yet but it's mostly complete and I'll be finishing off probably on Monday if I can. We'll see.

I'm especially proud of the brown braid-like collar. This is why I'm a self proclaimed genius.
