27th October 2014: Finishing bits I found that the first type of glue I used didn't work too well, so had to deconstruct the entire jacket to remove the glue and reattach the red material to the latex. While doing this I found out that the pieces had changed shape, so trimmed them to be equal again and rebuilt it using latex cement.
Also improved the cuff pieces and added new banding on the arms.
26th July 2014: Power laces 2 So I have all but completed the trainers. It has taken me four days to make these, which is a little shorter than I would have liked, but a deadline looms. Overall, I am quite happy with them. There are minor problems which I could correct if I attempt anything like this again, but it has been an interesting learning experience.
The trainers look wrinkles in the photo, but that is because there is no foot in them. They stretch out when worn to become smooth. I have had to take a little artistic license with them given the short time period in which I had to make them (and the fact that they are from the future!)
20th July 2014: Power laces Made a start on creating the shoes. They're quite fiddly in places, but at some point in the next day or so I will post progress shots
14th July 2014: Back to the costume So an impromptu event has seen me return to this costume. There are several things that need to be addressed, not least the ribbing around the base. I have something in mind for this but I won't know until the weekend when it arrives.
In the meantime, guess I had better start sorting out the shoes and the hoverboard. I am only intending to do the basic shoes (for now) given how close the event is.

The jacket looks amazing. Great job.
