20th September 2013: Assassin's Symbol In the 19th century when dye techniques and new types of fabric were being produced one of the things that became popular was fabrics that looked different in different lighting styles. (For example lamps at the opera. A dress that looked black in daylight could look purple at night.) I like to think this is the sort of thing with the Assassin's symbol on the hip cape here.
The silver paint shimmers in the light and depending on how the light hits the fabric, the assassin's symbol is either visible or nicely blends into the pattern of the fabric and only the red star is seen.
Painted with cotton buds, toothpicks and a paintbrush for the star.
8th September 2013: Belt Buckle Sewn/Glued onto the main belt for extra support.
6th September 2013: Fimo Belt Buckle Made out of Fimo, painted with an undercoat and then repainted on top. Will need to attach to the rest of the belt (that is semi made) once its finished.
3rd September 2013: Coat Base Today I made some pattern pieces for the coat out of calico, cut out the coat pieces from white cotton velvet. I'm still waiting on the lining to arrive in the post, so I'm not able to stitch everything together until then.
3rd September 2013: Embroidery 1 I started stitching together the bits and pieces for the coat collar and began embroidering the silver assassin symbols on the corner of the standing collar. They are stitched in heavy chain stitch and wrapped satin stitch in metallic silver thread.
