25th May 2014: Customising boots. Boots are finally customised. It's something I've been leaning to do for a year. The straps are now a part of the boots, opposed to simply being wrapped around it and buckled.
21st May 2014: Starting work on the gun holster. Decided to start work on this today. I had planned to wait a little longer, but the sewing bug got me. So far I have the base section completed. I'll be working on the straps next.
18th May 2014: Let's get messy... This is officially one of my favourite things about cosplaying from The Walking Dead - getting to destroy clothing.
Step one: Hole. Jeans.
Done with scissors and a sanding block, nothing special.
18th May 2014: Finally getting stuck in! I've had this costume sat "in progress" for a long time, with all the basics done. Today I actually sat down and did some proper work on it. With having a season 3 Maggie cosplay already, I had the jeans, boots, etc. but decided this year I wanted to work at making things more accurate.
First things first, was the belt. I've already made one of these from scratch, it wasn't great, so this morning I suddenly remembered an old belt I had lying around in the drawer. It turned out it was perfect, so I then spent a couple of hours punching holes and putting rivets in (I hate riveting with a passion lol).
Much happier with this than anything I could have attempted to make. Next, however, is the gun holster, which I will be making from scratch. It should be an experience!
