We had to. The Will and Jessie photos were so much fun haha, it was great to snark and make faces at each other even while laughing in between!
17th March 2014: finally starting properly! ALRIGHT Will is officially in progress!
I bought all my fabric for him today and got straight to work! Getting to use suiting fabric for the first time in my life, something I've wanted to work with for ages <3
I've cut out everything from the suiting fabric bar the sleeves and lapels. I decided I wanted to line the jacket because....I wanna be fancy + there was no other way for me to get decent cravat fabric (will be using the reverse of the lining [satin. I'm crying as I remember why it's been 4 years since I last worked with the stuff]). So I have 3/4 of the lining cut out, just need to decide what I'm doing with the lining for the front panel lining before I cut the last part out 'cause I underestimated how much satin to buy! But I have started the back panels at least. Hopefully it goes well, I've never lined something like this before!
Actually used the top two pieces of my waistcoat pattern for this then made it longer/more appropriate and obviously will need to do the sleeves myself. Was pleased with how the waistcoat for Oz fitted on me so I thought this was a good move! Hopefully I was right. I don't have time for buttons/button holes anyway so the thing isn't gonna need to close up so I should be safe in case it is too small (which I really don't think it is)
17th March 2014: wig did a quick wig test for Will last night. The response was good so I'm pleased! =D The wig is so difficult to manage though, it's so thick in the front!
17th January 2014: WAAAAH I am officially the most behind on my cosplay between my trio and myself! But whitewraith got her clockwork angel in today and InfiniteJester is actually pretty much finished with Jem so I need to get my butt in gear, and they have given me all of the motivation!
I ordered my wig just now (many thanks to the Institute for helping me decide on one) and I have finally decided on what I'm actually going to wear!
I'll make either a frock or morning coat in black or dark navy, basic white shirt (gonna get the same as Jem's)with either a cravat or one of those ribbon whatsits (not bowtie, the other thing) and IF I have time, I'm going to make a blue waistcoat. If I don't I'll just use a black waistcoat I bought ages ago.
I'll probably wear the coat open and because of that, might not bother making button holes for now (we'll see) and I reeeeally wanna have my arms covered in marks, so I want to make it easy to get to my arms. Hence open coat! So hopefully the sleeves of the shirt will be easy to roll up and down and the coat easy to toss to the side when needed~
Thinking of making a hidden blade holster too...that would be fun.
Yeah needed to write that all down here 'case I forget haha, I have been trying to come up with a solid design for ages!
