22nd October 2014: Finishing touches Pleat pockets sewn on with the help of Nat, belt sprayed, worbla trim painted and attached with velcro so it's removeable for washing. Just a little hand sewing to finish off the trousers now, but it's all wearable and ready to go! :)
21st October 2014: Worbla details Foam layers encased in worbla and then pressed in to make the shape for the hat badges.
The neck epaulettes are a single piece and folded back to make the ridges so they're light enough to stay on the collar.
30th September 2014: Caps WIP White drill cotton, black denim and vinyl with wire and foam inserts to help them keep their shape. They were a lot fiddlier to make than I expected!
The peaks are double sided and I tried to edge it with pleather, but the finish was messy, so I'm just going to paint the edges in with black acrylic paint. The worbla badges are yet to be made, but there's going to be an orca, a dolphin and a shark. The other two are for Haru and Rin. :)
26th September 2014: Top progress The sleeves have fold back cuffs and the ribbon was all measured out and folded under, attached on with wonder web. There's a foam insert in the collar to help it stand upright and to make it sturdy enough so that the worbla chevrons will be able to be attached and it should hold alright.
It's in need of an iron and is just pinned roughly into place because I wanted to work out what to do and see how it'll look at the end. It fits much nicer than it appears to here! XD
23rd September 2014: WIP! It's started! I'm just waiting on some supplies and have been distracted with other costumes...
But I have the base pattern and hat pieces cut out for us. Just waiting on some foam to arrive so I can start putting the hats together and do the Worbla work!
