11th May 2015: belt Got the belt generally put together today. The studs do need sewing on to the belt but you can see how it's going to look.
30th April 2015: Studs and buttons So today I've been working on the buttons for Kili's coat.
Started off by making original copies in foam and made moulds from them. Then I used polymorph to make duplicates.
19th February 2015: Neck scarf So today I made and coloured the weird little mini neckscarf thing Kili has. It started off as some grey really textured fabric and I very lightly brushed it with fabric paint until it took. Hoping in the next few days to get the shirt coloured and get the boots started.
4th February 2015: Trousers textured Trousers are done and textured, mostly using fabric paint.
Next stop is building the boots.
15th January 2015: Fabrics and dyes Brought my fabrics for Kili today. Rather then pick up fabrics with the correct colour, I've gone for texture and I will dye accordingly.
Hopefully in the next few days I'll get some trousers sewn and get something sorted with the dyes.
