Progress

I've not made or bought a cosplay for a very long time, actually the last one I made was the Hisagi Shuuhei one. I'm giving my profile here a bit of an update, I'm also scrapping all of the non-completed cosplays, ad will start fresh.

I realise I've fallen off the radar with this one. So, just a quick update on progress really.

Between when I decided that I'd work on this up until about two weeks ago, I hadn't actually worked on it, the UDK (Unreal Development Kit) took a lot of my attention.

However, over the last couple of weekends, I did some more work on the shirt part of this cosplay. So far, I've got the base of it done (sans collar and cuffs).

All that's left to do on the shirt is the collar, cuffs, panelling and other little bits and pieces. I have no image yet, but, I probably won't show the shirt until it's complete :)

I've been spending some time this weekend working on the shirt.

However, I've also done a bit of work at home so, that's taken up some of my time this weekend. however, I have made a little progress.

Yesterday, I picked up the fabric I need to make the shirt, and I spent pretty much all of this afternoon (with a small break for lunch) marking the fabric and cutting the pieces out.

I'd start sewing tonight, but I think it might be a little late now >_> though I would like to get the shirt made before next weekend.

I may have to add a couple of extra panels in at the sides and over the shoulders, it feels a little... tight... I did a fitting by pinning all of the pieces together, just to make sure that it's okay.

I'll let you know how it goes :)

I've spent the majority of this evening drawing parts for the shirt, I think I've jotted everything down. now, I just need to take measurements, which requires finding our tape measure or getting a new one...

once that's done, I can go and get the fabric and start crafting!

The plan here is to build this thing up in layers, so, I'll start with the lowest layers first, basically the shirt and the pants. I'm not sure what I'll do next after that though, perhaps the apron? we'll see.

I've already been thinking about how best to do the shirt, I think, looking at the reference pics, that I'll make the main torso part in four pieces, to give the necessary seems, with a single piece for each arm. And that's as far as I've got with that.

it's not complete as it could be at the moment, but it's passable, plus, I ran out of time >_>
