5th April 2022: QUICK PROGRESS TEASER UNTIL I POST EVENT PHOTOS

Sheik was a real delight to put together even if a lot of handsewing was done! The hip, shoulders and arm armour were leatherette with bias tape hand-sewn onto them. I created the 'chainmail' out of blue fishnet and the waist/garter was drafted using old fabric and slowly patterened by eye and transferred onto some gorgous suedette and used a seam ripper to thread the string through! There is no function to the front bit, it just goes over my head because im lazy af. I originally used Peachskin to make the chest bindings but they are not worth the discomfort so made a white tube top out of spandex instead and sewn in some folds that worked out much nicer. The poncho was made by cutting a panel of Scuba that was painted using a cross between freezer paper for the red and freehand painting for the blue. The scarf and the rest of the poncho was made of Peachskin to make it floaty and easy to distress. The mask is a quick one made of Scuba. Hat was cotton just lying about. The leggies were also suedette but were very last minuite so they are the one thing id like to remake.
