Luke fon Fabre
Tales of the Abyss

Cosplayer: WhiteWraith

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

28th May 2014: Thoughts~ I did like cosplaying Luke but because I made this so fast I cut lots of corners and some parts of the costume I really didn't like. I think when I have time, I will be re-making bits, mostly the coat and will actually style the wig properly!

21st May 2014: coat coat is pretty much done. Just need to do gloves and the sword.

21st May 2014: Progress Belt is complete. Added sleeves to the coat, they're too short really and I screwed up setting one in but no time to fix that now, it looks decent I guess.
Sword is nearing completion. Added another layer of foamboard to handle and detailing, this needs layers of paper mache and then I can begin to add the gesso, should be able to do all of this tonight. After that sword will just need sanding and painting and it will be done!
Hoping to get the coat complete by tonight and to have made a good start on the gloves.

18th May 2014: Coat progress Coat is sewn together, going to start hemming it later.
Shoes have been painted, just waiting for them to dry.
Cut out a template for the sword and layered up foam to make it thick enough. Added the first layer of paper mache, waiting for that to dry before I can continue.

11th May 2014: Progress Added fake pocket flaps to the trousers. Top is finished, sleeves gave me a headache though! Started on his belt and sword and the back seam of the coat is sewn together.

10th May 2014: Progress Base trousers are done, just got to add the pocket flaps. Top is half done, shouldn't take long to complete. Shoes are arrived, just need to spray paint them now.
Going to start to tackle the coat tomorrow.

5th May 2014: Progress Finally got some fabric progress! Luke's trousers are mostly done, just got to add elastic the waistband and hem the bottom of the legs.

22nd April 2014: Progress? (or not) Wig arrived. Colour is darker than I thought so not sure if it will work or not. I'm a bit annoyed about it.
I have all the fabric for his coat and trousers now but as I'm re-decorating, finding where they currently are is a mystery and I've made no progress yet!

8th April 2014: Start! I've ordered a wig for him, the colour looks great so hoping it appears as that colour ^^;
I have a good idea of what fabric I'll be using for his coat, I need to make sure the local fabric shop still has it in stock. Hoping to start making his coat this week/week end!
