Condition: Not Set

1st June 2012: Boots! Found a great boot cover tutorial online, so I re-made mine. They look so much better than they did! (TwT) Still a bit loose though...

31st May 2012: Grrr. Due to.. unfortunate happenings, Rin missed expo :(
Luckily, everything is fine now and he should be making his debut at AmeCon (^^)
Also, here's a photo of the bag I made <33

10th May 2012: 15 days to go!! EEP.

Rin's coming along fine.
I have started making the bag.
Will hopefully post pictures soon!
He WILL be finished in time for expo!
Though I have to re-think how I'm going to make the boot covers. The leatherette I bought didn't work very well :(

24th January 2012: Shorts and boots!! FINALLY got my boots through the door and they are ready to be modified!! I need to experiment with boot covers *excited*
ALSO, I've made the shorts longer and more flared out. I would totally go out in these. Just casually. LOVE THEM :|
I post too much in this costume journal...

11th November 2011: Round 2... Expo blues have really kicked me in the teeth. HARD. So I haven't done as much to this costume as I would have liked to. BUT I have made the shorts longer... only thing is, they may be too long now (-__-')
I will win... eventually...
It's not all bad though, because I did manage to convince that certain someone to be my Akira!!! Yayyy!! Roll on May!!!

23rd October 2011: Wig!!! It arrived a few days ago, and ALREADY I have been abusing it (ignore the sharingan lenses -___-' I got bored).
And a quick update on the shorts - They have been annoying me (being that length), so I am going to be adjusting them soon. Really need to concentrate on getting my other costumes ready for Friday...

11th October 2011: Ready, steady... SEW!!! I had some spare time on my hands, so I started cutting and sewing on material for Rin's shorts. I've pinned everything into place and they look okay, but maybe they should be longer.. I can't decide :\
I really shouldn't be working on a costume I have planned for next year, when I haven't even finished my planned expo costumes for the end of this month >___<
Bad, Kimi, bad!! But I love this costume so...

9th October 2011: Shorts So I'm now making 3 costumes at once, haha!!
I doubt i'll be making most of this from scratch. It's more of a modification job ;)
I have some old black shorts that i'm going to experiment with. I do need to remove the pockets, but hopefully, I will be able to cut out and sew the red material on them. I make it sound easy. Good thing my mother is around to help me out if I screw it up too bad ^w^'
I guess I should start marking the material...

8th October 2011: Fabric I went down to my local fabric shop to have a look at tartan material which would be suitable for this costume. The one that was most similar is the one posted with this journal entry. It not exact, but it's the best I can find. Though I have noticed that most Rin cosplays have used a normal tartan pattern and they all look REALLY good :|
Guess I'll just have to try it out ^w^
