22nd September 2013: Costume Error After seeing the first lot of pictures from Aya I realised I have the drop leg on the wrong leg and the belt kit with accessories in wrong place. That will be rectified on next wearing.
14th August 2013: Hat Patch Alias did a fantastic job fabricating an NHS patch for the hat as they cannot be purchased in shops.
13th August 2013: Bone Saw Rig Test Mount Rig was tested to see how suitable it was. It's not perfect but allows limited mobility and looks ok.
13th August 2013: Bone Saw Rig Bone Saw was mounted onto a dropleg panel using elasticated velcro. Loops for the excess straps were also added. Along with the Surgical Scissoers which are mounted alongside the Bone Saw.
13th August 2013: Defibrilator and Medic Bags Bags were made by EJ Sephyirane. They were packed out to maintain thier shape. They will need a bit of modifying so they sit right.
13th August 2013: Belt Medical Items For the belt kit I sourced some Ace Bandages, modified three Pill Bottles, and some Medical Tape. They were attached to the belt using self adhesive velcro, a loop was wrapped around the belt in several sections. The belt items then had velcro attached. This was so they could be added/repositioned/removed without the belt having to be taken off.
12th August 2013: Medical Tape Was unable to find medical tape in an accurate size, so used masking tape instead.
12th August 2013: Latex Gloves After some searching I was able to buy some white latex gloves. All the ones I use at work are either blue or purple and therefore unsuitable.
