22nd October 2013: Done OK, so I might have skipped a few journals along the way - oops.
Anyways, made the jacket, harness and skirt thing, bought a tshirt and had to turn it into a tshirt about 4 sizes smaller, and altered the jeans. I even polished my boots ready to debut this costume on friday at expo :)
Picture is all three sets I had to make becuase it almost killed me, so I want to show them off a little.
2nd September 2013: Harness prototype So it looks like I'll be making the harnesses for the whole group. I started prototyping one to see exactly how much material I'll need, and the answer is a lot more than I thought ^_^' Still, the harness is easy enough to make (though some of the buckles aren't needed and will just make it a bit more confusing to put on, so I'm still deciding what to do). Halfway through the prototyping we'd decided to look for an affordable kind of webbing to make the harnesses from, soI didn't bother making any more suede straps, hence the white used instead. Still, once we get materials, the harnesses should be coming thick and fast - just the jacket and shirt left to worry about for now, as I won't be doing 3d gear at the moment.
