22nd June 2013: Finished! I somehow managed to finish off the coat in one sitting, so Gambit is officially done! I need to tidy up some threads here and there and do a few tiny touches but I consider it done, now.
Ready for LFCC~
21st June 2013: Boots finished! After four days worth of work, I have the boots done! I still technically need to add a bit of elastic at the bottom of each one just to give them a little shape around the platform of the boot, but I count them as done because I can do that last-minute if necessary (and the elastic isn't needed to hold them in place anyway).
Going to work on the coat next, and then Gambit will be ready for LFCC~
19th June 2013: First cover done! After two days worth of sewing and suffering, the first of the boot covers is done. Done completely by hand, with the use of PVC and silver foiling (and a section of cardboard for the knee piece to keep it sturdy and upright). You can't see it in the photo but I went around the silver pieces with black thread to make them stand out~
18th June 2013: Boot cover progress Almost finished the first boot cover. I ended up making a start on them today simply for something to do, and eleven hours later, here we are. Still gotta sew the silver pieces down properly, and then go around them with black thread to make the pattern show, but almost done!
17th June 2013: Coat pattern created So I've just finished creating the pattern for Gambit's coat, and I'll be working on it from Tuesday or Wednesday onwards. Modelled it from a leather trench coat I own so it should be about perfect, hopefully. The fabric is nice and light so I'll get a nice billowy effect if it's windy~
[I've made promises to get better at updating CI with journals and such]
15th June 2013: Coat & Boots Purchased the fabric to make Gambit's coat and boot covers a couple of days ago, so I'll be starting work on those over the next couple of weeks. First time making boot covers that cover the whole boot so this will be a fun experience x_x
26th March 2013: Wig progress So I finally got around to cutting my wig - it hasn't turned out the way I wanted it to and I've bought a replacement because I hate it so much now BUT it's the right length and apparently looks fine according to those I've asked so idk. I might use this one or I might use the new one. We'll see.

mgg-thunder: Thank you! It's actually really basic and simple - I cut the shape out of two layers of cardboard (originally used one, but they weren't defined enough) and then stitched them to the black shirt underneath, then once I'd added the pink shirt over the top I stitched around the edges of the cardboard to make them stand out.

Nice and simple. Thanks may use that way for my Red Hood.
