Cosplayer: Starbucks dad

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

24th February 2013: Hair test Some wash in/wash out and it looks not too bad.

17th February 2013: Just the hair to go We've permission from her school to go ginge!

13th January 2013: Snippity snip Cutting both t shirts the same and then sewing the right bits together...

13th January 2013: T shirts arrived! Just need a cunning plan to merge them together....

6th January 2013: Hmm Cape looks far too short. Drat

6th January 2013: Made a belt 2! It works! Just need to paint it up.

6th January 2013: Made a belt! Ok, so we just wrapped some leatherette around itself and then added a buckle, but we're quite pleased

6th January 2013: Utility belt 2 Cutting....

6th January 2013: Utility belt 1 Sketching out the template and the all important task of making sure she can get her sweeties in it!

1st January 2013: So far Gloves and boots bought in the sale (hurrah), skirt sort of done. Cape also (might need some twiddling to get to sit right). We've done a dry run of the mask but need to adjust the model slightly also we need the right colour (blue?). Two T-shirts on the way (one blue, one black) which we plan to cut up and sew back together to get the tshirt design right. Then it's just the the utility belt...

1st January 2013: Cutting down Size minus 20 on the way..

1st January 2013: Skirt Pair of size 8's in the sale to be cut down to size something or other. Very small anyway....

1st January 2013: Lining Um, adding the lining.

1st January 2013: Hemming Sewing in

1st January 2013: Glueing Glueing the hems prior to sewing

1st January 2013: Under orders El's asked me to put as many pictures of her making this one up as I can. (I think she worries that people don't thinks she makes most of her own costumes) so here we go. First cut....

1st January 2013: Stuff! Material arrived....

11th November 2012: Whys and whatnot With El being a fan of the old school Birds of Prey this seemed to be a natural for her. The big plus for us is that it's almost a "hit girl lite" and will give us the chance to practice making a cloak and utility belt.

:) Hehe

Well the plan is to roll it out in February at London Super Comic Con and again in Expo in October (Sad, but true, we've actually got a schedule of where we're going and what she's wearing for next year already...)

No problem any idea of when it'll be done ? I'd love to see it in person :-)

:) Most kind.

Hoping to have ready for the end of this month (although we're going to re-make the cape and we still have to successfully make the t-shirt).

First run out will be London Super Comiccon but she'll be using it a couple of times this year (Hit Girl is looking quite pricey so although we're still making it, it's going to preclude making a lot of costumes this year)so there's a fair chance you should see it live.

This looks great so far. :-) Misfit is such a fun character, I'm sure she'll have a great time dressing as her.
