Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

6th April 2010: Hat, further The hat is now complete except for the cannonballs (ping pong balls are ready to be painted and glued, sah!). And actually, bar a single straight line of stitching and one or two optional decorative bits, it's pretty much done as a whole :)

The feathers in the hat mean I have a turning circle of approximately 6 feet...

15th March 2010: Colossal hat! The hat is now complete, bar decoration and weaponry. I think it wins the award for being the largest and most ridiculous hat I've ever constructed, and I have the odd bizarre hat in my portfolio already!

I tried to make it from scratch, but it wasn't working out, so I bought a Leg Avenue pirate hat, extended it with funky foam, and covered the whole thing in the red fabric, sealing the edges with bias binding. I will probably need to slightly alter the sword configuration to prevent it being overbalanced on one side, but priority on the hat is obviously the MOTHERLOVIN' HAT CANNON.

Next up: buying loads of decorative shiz and making everything blingin'.

1st March 2010: Arrr......gh Made really good progress on the jacket thus far, just a few bits and pieces to finish off there. But I've hit a major bugbear with the velvet/velour I'm using for the cape and underskirt. It frays like a b**** and seems to shift around when I sew it (probably because it's quite a deep pile). I got pretty frustrated with it and threw the whole lot into a bag - now I need to unpick a load of bias and try again with something to stop the fraying.

Cotton velvet doesn't do this >_>

You looked geogous in this, and the hat cannon was amazing.

You beat Dez' design! Incredible work, especially on that hat, I nearly exploded with glee when you actually pulled the sword out of the hat!

This is amazing! It would get a bit out of hand if I listed everything I love about it, but I especially like your choice of red fabric, the feathers and HAT, of course. The detail you put in was stunning.
