13th November 2014: Shirt WIP Even though you're allowed to enter the HJ WCS competition with 25% of the outfit bought, I can't bring myself to enter a competition with any items bought that I really should make. So even though you don't really see it, I bothered to make Roy's shirt that he wears under the uniform.
