Hardest part done haha, I think I have to hem some trousers now and that's about it!

Decided to test an idea I had with some LED lights, gonna take this forward I think!

Sticker on my face because I havent shaved off my beard or painted my face in these pictures! Just have to add a little tip to my boots and trial the face paint before the con at the weekend!

Working on a body suit so I only have to paint my face for the costume :D

Re-lining the boots I bought to match my top and look better.

I'd like to have a longer wig to sit under these 2 but I don't have time to get one for MCM Scotland - later!

Latex! Ready for paint, and then maybe a final latex layer

Made 2 collars for my Shinji cosplay - although I like the idea of the led (it flashes at different speeds) it ended up being really bulky due to the battery and I had to use electrical tape to cover it. The flat version doesn't light up but is way more accurate and aesthetically pleasing. Well tonight was a learning adventure!

Pretty much done, just gotta make my collar by taking apart an LED bracelet - if the wig comes on time this'll probably be worn at Deecon 2015.

I ended up patching the base together from the collection of left over black fabrics I had from other costumes. I decided against the huge billowing sleeves because I didn't want to be swamped in fabric - but I may end up adding something light over the top later.

I tried painting my skin up and contouring in some cheekbones - I'm gonna keep my beard and it was quite funny putting foundation on then wiping it off my beard XD

All I have to do is finish sewing my belts together and this thing is done! As we are carpooling and already have big ass props to transport I won't be bringing sword and line gear to Ayacon but will complete the added weaponry for another event!

Started buying bits online for myself and Raine :D

I finished all my sewing! Now just to finish my feetsies!

I'm 50/50 on if I should do shorts or trousers at this point. I think Kneesocks would be better with shorts because, well KNEESOCKS WEARS KNEE SOCKS, and we should probably match - but trousers means less red/layers of make-up and clothing and I do struggle with heat and overheating (then sweat....) so I'd probably be more comfortable in trousers.

Official watch £3000, my watch, £3 lol

I've decided to put comparison's up with my costume pieces that I've taken from the wardrobe section of sherlockology - a very good resource shown to me by my lovely Mrs Hudson Pudding :D

(I'll alway put the ref on the left and my own bits on the right)

Now to sew 50-bajillion zips around the jacket, arghdjgfhh!

A long and arduous sewing task x2!

...blue pubes! This came off of my beard after Puds dyed it and she says I should glue it to my stomach. I think not.

My simplified ribcage design for Highblood's shirt.

I have pillows for forearms, go me! They are feathery and Puds will probably rub her face in them at some stage. -_-

I made Roger here for my Bro costume, but I may have Dirk bring a little plush friend too...

I made a pin for my cape when I thought the costume was going to be too plain for my liking - but now I don't know if I should use it or not...

smoothed out and chains added, ready for painting

Jacket at about 90% completed, only needs the buttons and inner collar finished!

Teeth! The middle 4 teeth are cheaper scarecrow brand fangs, but the teeth on either end are more expensive vampire fangs I had made a while back - they were made by a dentist and have a plate that sits on the roof of your mouth to hold them in place. The plate does a good job of holding all the teeth in place snuggly I've found!

I finished paint/printing the symbols on my troll shirts!

Baggy pants begun, I bought the largest pair of jogging pants I could find, I figured they would sit the way I thought they should best.

I finally loaded my progress pic up from my phone -_-'
Horns made, now for the painting! Horns are made from fimo soft.
