I'm running out of titles. It felt like I was leaning much farther back than this!!
7th March 2014: for all intents and purposes (or whatever that saying is) IT IS DONE FINALLY
Overall I am very pleased with it! heat and bond and triangles and mini triangles and shapes and geometry everywhere. ALL of the shape deets were done with heavy/ultrawhatever heat&bond! And I made the beads (badly) from sculpey that I had to save 'cause it was old and crumbling hah.
I want to fix the "tassels" up a bit as the right one gave me some hell and as such, has frayed like hell. I have ways of making it look a bit prettier though.
Things I will unfortunately not be able to do for this cosplay are make boot covers and a pair of trousers. I'm gonna try to buy some grey trousers that will work, and if I have time I'll make the dumb little side flaps/pockets and if not, I'll say "I'm doing the animu cut scene version look!! He has no flaps there" (he doesn't) (I checked)
Hahh....bit miffed I won't be able to do those, but maybe next time! (since I have decided I want to wear this more than once)
OH also might not get around to styling the wig until the day before because I don't have my gel with me and will need to prod the buds to see if they have any....might try my luck with spray though.
4th February 2014: finallyyyyy I have finally started! I went fabric shopping again today and bought the rest of the fabric I needed for the jacket and I went straight for it! I have the base of the jacket all sewn up now and I only had a couple of hiccups! Tomorrow or later I'm going to fix the collar and add the yellow parts to the jacket, and start the shirt (leaving the bottom details until I have fabric paint/another idea)
Feels so good to be sewing again! (though my neck would say otherwise)
