22nd June 2010: New Stuff! Yes, it's official, I'm upgrading parts of my jack sparrow costume.
I've got some lovely new boots. They're more brown than tan, and more leather-look than suede, but that can all be fixed. And they've not got the flat toe to them, but again, given time, I may be able to fix that too. The overall quality of them is far superior to my old ones though, lol, so can't complain there.
I've also ordered a coat from costumebase, for MCM in October, since it'll be a lil colder, and it'll complete the suit. I'll just need to dye it when it gets here, if the colour's off, then weather it to hell, lol.
The other thing I've been working on is the compass.... I'm making my own out of wood! I'll post pics when it's closer to finished, but I'm trying to make it a practical thing, that'll be able to spin in random directions (or predetermined, if I see fit). hahaha
All the best, my lovelies, and keep a weathered eye on the horizon, cos Jack's coming back..... savvy?
