So round two with Howl. I love cosplayomg as howl. Its comfy, its easily recognisable and yes so darn fabulous!
So I thought this time I'd do things right and give myself the necessary time to make it properly.

The shirt will be the starter, making sure to do the yoke correctly with the ruffled detailing.

The jacket/coat will be the cream version with the red lining and gold coloured trim with the lavender/purple triangles. I've picked this as I'm going to do a little quilting with it. As I haven't done any before I'd like to start small and then redo the other version I have properly at a later date.

Finally the jewellery. I have the tools and beads to make the correct pendant and earrings so I'll be making them myself. As for the ring, I'm going to find something fairly plain and modify because fuck casting a proper ring!

Haven't decided on whether to remake the trousers or just continue cheating with the black chinos I have which do the job just fine. Less work I think.

Should have it done before Belfast comic con in June but aiming for auchi just for insurance sakes.

Bling Bling! (Posted 21st May 2014)

Tonight is jewellery night! And with the earrings done Iits the chain and pendant (when it arrives)

Machine embroidery and applique (Posted 11th May 2014)

So today the stuff in the title happened! Lots of ironing to come next as this jacket is creased as buggery right now!
Also machining the applique is both far easier and far more stressful then I'd thought it would be.

Shirt day 2 (Posted 20th April 2014)

Today saw finishing the 2nd sleeve and then starting the main body of the shirt.
The pic is of the yoke with a piece of gathered lace to add a little more flounce and detailing. Bitch to sew but looks the business now!

Shirt day! (Posted 19th April 2014)

Taking a slow process with the shirt today was sleeve day. First if a few posts on the sleeves. This one is gathering! I hate gathering but gave it a good go, and they look pretty good if I must say.
