18th December 2010: Finding the stuff I need~! So yeah, I'm almost finished getting all my supplies for this mean man. I've ordered my beard, mustache and wig. I got two leather/skins for the leather pieces, and got the fabric for both this extra flaps, and pants, bought WONDERFUL manly boots.
I'm still pondering on the cape though, it's shiny, and got this satin feel, but I absolutely hate, disgust and revolt the idea of working with satin, as I find it cheap looking and horrible to work with. So instead I'm looking for a replacement, less shiny, heavier on the feel, and I can't help returning to silk. But, as I already spend quite an amount of money on this guy, I don't want to add 6 meters of 30 euros a meter fabric on the list. (Because frankly, even I can't justify 180 euros... for a cape!)
I've always like Suedine/ fake suede leather, but it might not be bright enough for the cape, but as I said, it does have a nice feel to it...
Well we'll see how it goes, right?
No image, as all I could show you is rolled up skins, some fabrics and emails showing I bought tools, beards and the likes, XD
