Boots Painted

I really wanted to use Tarrago Leather Paint as I have brilliant results with it in the passed but Shipping to Australia from the UK made it four times the price so I decided to wait until I'm over for a holiday and redo them with leather paint then. Until that time comes I have opted for a chocolate brown Acrylic. I will probably be adding a further three more layers as this is only two layers and the brush marks are still very prominent.

Trousers and Skirt

I have cut out the pattern for Rosalind's Skirt (and Robert's Trousers) unfortunately the fabric I brought isn't quite dark enough and is a little too orange. I had originally planned to buy wool in white or cream and dye it but everywhere seems to have sold out of white wool. So with a slight epiphany I decided to buy this orange fabric and tomorrow I will be dying it with a medium brown dye which I had originally brought but felt needed a little orange in it to make the colour correct. Fingers crossed it goes well. I am only planning to darken it 1 - 2 shades so will be making a very dilute mix.

For those of you interested I used this Pattern:
http://www.marquise.de/en/1900/schnitte/s1908_8.gif
for Rosalind's skirt. It is a 5 panel Edwardian Walking Skirt which is correct for her ear of attire. Plus it also solves the mystery of how she appears to be wearing a semi tightly fitted skirt until she's waltzing when she has all this extra movement all of a sudden. It should also help to accentuate the hip bump from her S-Curve Corset.

For Robert I used the trousers from the Simplicity 7274 Civil War Pattern (which is my go to pattern for Male cosplay!)

Corset to Recycle

I brought this waist trainer corset from Corset-UK as it was in the sale for £26 (after shipping) and is full spiral steel. The shape is inaccurate for an Edwardian corset but I already have another corset which I will be destroying for it's flat steel boning and this worked out cheaper then buying steel boning and a busk on their own. It's also made of green fabric which the concept artist used in her breakdown of Rosalind's undergarments so hopefully I will be able to salvage some of that for mine. I have already made a test pattern of an S-Curve Corset which is from the book Corsets and Crinoline. I will need to make the actual one a little bit longer as it's currently a little short but I love it so much. I'm excited to add the boning and padding. So glad the Edwardian period is all about making yourself look flat chested :D We all know I don't have any problems managing this ^_^;

Jacket Base for Waistcoats.

Managed to find this lovely microfiber Jacket in a charity shop for £2. Hoping to use this to make both Robert and Rosalind's Waistcoats. Will definitely be enough fabric to make the fronts of both but I might need to cheat and use another fabric to make the back of the waistcoats. The swatch in the corner is a more accurate colour of the Jacket. It's not quite as mustard/yellow as their waistcoats but with the dye I've picked out for the Jackets and Skirt/Trouser; it will complement quite well (In theory)

Base Shoes bought.

Bioshock is set in the Edwardian era of clothing so I searched for Edwardian boots. Unfortunately eBay, charity shops and fancy dress shops in my area didn't turn anything up. I decided to do an etsy search and found these. They are half a size bigger than my normal shoe but this is probably better since they end in a point and they are actual leather instead of fake leather. Will need to wait a week or so for them to arrive but once that is sorted then I can get to work leather painting them.
