2nd November 2014: Hood progress To ease myself back into sewing (I've been having shoulder issues again), I decided to make something simple. And so I made my Magma hood!
To get the poncho shape, I pinned around one of my oversized jumpers onto red fleece, cut around it and sewed the shoulder seams. I then tried it on, and marked the length I wanted and cut it to that (I should have left this step til later!)
I used my usual pattern for the hood, and sewed it into the collar. At this point I realised that the hood would pull the poncho up, and so it looks a bit too short because I cut it too early baaah
The black details are pleather (pinned on in the photo as I need to move the M up slightly). Horns will come soon!
I'm still not 100% certain on the length of the poncho... opinions?

Love the female Magma grunt's design, you shall rock this! (and then in the [likely not happening] future when Colosseum gets a 3DS rerelease we shall cosplay to the release of that together...)
