17th November 2009: Well. He got finished. Just. After my best friend came round and had to tell me it would be alright and that it would work. Because I didn't have a pattern, and it went tits up.
And he looked - to put it bluntly - shit. I had a lot of fun in the costume, but unless I feel proud of it, it automatically drops how I feel when I cosplay.
I'm eventually going to redo his coat. Maybe even buy it.
I need to lose weight so I don't look like I have manboobs to go with my beer belly. Or at least buy a looser WHITE jumper.
I need to buy a wig so my hair isn't fail.
It's mainly the coat that disappointed me though. The only things that made my costume were the two amazing props that Matty made me. Thanks so much Matty, you're amazing! Everyone loved the drill and Komurin :D
This needs to be redone before I ever wear this again. I'm not going to post any picture of it here until it looks much much better.
But hey, trial and error, right? :D
