16th February 2014: Nearing completion Modded some sandals, doesn't look particularly great but it will do.
Just got the last bits of the dagger to finish and this costume is finished!
6th February 2014: Dagger progress~ Dagger is almost complete, just got to wait for the hilt to finish drying and I can paint it and done.
Cut out leatherette for the sheathe, needs sewing together. Looking for some suitable sandles to modify and then I'll FINALLY be done.
24th January 2014: Dagger Started the dagger, should only take a couple of days what with waiting for filler to dry. As soon as it's finished I can make the sheathe for it.
19th January 2014: Almost complete Costume is pretty much done!
Just gotta sort out what I'm doing about footwear and make the dagger and sheath which shouldn't take too long.
18th January 2014: Porgress Harem pants have been made. Pretty happy with these seeing as it's my first time making trousers on my own :)
Haven't got mush left to do for this now, a few sewing bits left and then making the dagger.
18th January 2014: Wig Wig has arrived. Not entirely sure on the colour but it will do for now. Will post test photos later.
12th January 2014: Progress Arm/wrist things are complete.
Bought a scarf for his waist, just got to buy ribbon and sew/glue it onto the scard. Bought another nice ring and bought red rope to go around his waist.
Aiming to get his trousers done over the following week. After that just got to make the dagger and buy a few more accessories and done.
10th January 2014: Accessories I found some cheap jewellery in primark that I thought would work for Sei. I still need to get a few more pieces but made a start!
8th January 2014: Progress Finished his head scarf!
Starting to work on his arm cuff things and trousers.
4th January 2014: Wig~ Finally got round to ordering a wig. Sei's hair is such an awkward colour so it might not be 100% accurate but I can live with that :)
21st December 2013: Progress Undertop and vest are complete.
Started to make a pattern for the harem trousers.
15th December 2013: Fabric Bought the rest of the fabric I need for this costume :)
Hoping to get it all done over Christmas!
6th December 2013: Blah Haven't made much progress on this recently due to work. Aiming to get more done this weekend. Decided to buy a scarf for his waist rather than make one, just need to add trim and that bit is done.
30th November 2013: Progress~ White undertop is complete.
Red vest just needs to be hemmed around the neck and then that will be complete too.
24th November 2013: Under-top The white under top is done bar putting in a zip up the back.
Might try and get some of the red vest sewn up too today.
22nd November 2013: Start Starting to pattern out bits of this costume, need to get this done asap as it's one of my easier kita cosplays.
I've neatened up the edges of the nice material I bought for his scarf, need to experiment with getting it to sit right on my head so it shows off the silver bits.
I've made a pattern for his red vest, need to cut out fabric and sew it together. I've decided to make an under-top for this cosplay too as I'm a girl and can't really get away with that much skin on show x3 I've got some nice white patterned fabric that I will use. I've already got a pattern for that so hoping that won't take me long!
6th October 2013: Fabric~ Went fabric shopping recently and got some red fabric for his vest and some green fabric for his head scarf. I wanted to jazz up the design a bit and found some gorgeous fabric so I'm using that for his head scarf.
