13th October 2010: Nearly there... So I haven't updated this costume in a while. As you can see, it has mostly been a case of buying the bits and putting them all together.
I've omitted the arm tentacle part, simply because a) I don't really have the time and b) Where on earth am I going to put it on the day? It'll as awkward as carrying a fire hose.
I'm only going to the Expo on the Friday, however this costume is also having an outing on Saturday. I'm going to Club Noir in Glasgow, and it's Halloween fancy dress. So this costume will get its full use!
I'm going to go onto sewing on the white parts of the jacket sometime this weekend. Right now I'm just sitting in the corner waiting for the lenses to dispatch.
