It's early in the morning.  
The fruits of my labor

I'm really happy with the way it's turned out.
Gotta tinker with the wig a bit. It's a great hairmenow wig(ebay), but the color's a bit off, and I gotta make the peice that always sticks straight up.

Despite the bit of tinkering with the hair, it looks really great.

Hmmm did you use a pattern for the coat? We so far have just been modfying a Jedi robe pattern for it but yours actually looks right lol.
HIDE your facekyonomiko on June 1st, 2004 11:14 am (UTC)
No, sorry. I didn't use a pattern :( I drafted one by hand because I didn't have the time to look for one that was close.

WOW!!! Any way I could get a copy? ^_~ hehehehe. Working heavily towards a Ed costume but the arm probably wont be done for a long time.

Sasuke is my current Project since I snagged the black headband for his later costume.

XD I threw the pattern away XD
If you'd asked just two days earlier, I would have mailed it to you.. lol
Since I was cleaning, and I wasn't planning on making another, I just thew it away.. lol

If you get back to me after A-kon, and my brother hasn't taken the costume, I can trace you a pattern onto muslin off that coat. If your measurements are bigger than his, you'll have to let it out a little, though. He's really freakin skinny o..O Doesn't take after me in the slightest. I wish I had gotten some of the genes he snagged XD

Hahaha! Any help would be appreciated. I have patterns for all the rest of the costume plus good ideas for the belt but i'm rather stumpped with the coat since I'm still quite a novice with the sewing machine. But again, any assisance would be appreciated.

Well, if it helps at all....

I basically made my coat pattern similar to the jacket pattern, but larger& longer& with wider sleeves. I made everything bigger, measured the coat to my brother's calves, and cut a slit up the middle of the back. Instead of the mandarin collar I used for the jacket, I made a hood for the coat.
Let me know what event this is for... because if you need it for A-kon, I will sketch the pattern into a JPG for you tonight, and you can just scale it up. If you want a full-scale pattern, you'll have to wait about a month

ooooh its no hurry. I can't have it done by AX because of Lack of money. SO its going to be till at least halloween for when the initial costume will be ready.
So no rush at all.

The only costume i'm making in a hurry is the black sasuke costume. Any ideas there? Since I know its just a one piece jumpsuit its just bizzar looking.
HIDE your facekyonomiko on June 1st, 2004 05:37 pm (UTC)
jumpsuit? Sasuke from Naruto? I'm not sure I know what you're doing. If you could send me a ref. photo, though, I might be able to help :)

An awesome fan art of the costume
HIDE your facekyonomiko on June 1st, 2004 07:33 pm (UTC)
Well.. I've seen up through the Chuunin exam, and Sasuke's appearance in the black outfit at the end of the third exam, and it really looks to me that it is just like his blue outfit, except black& with the new arm& leg bindings. It looks like the shirt and shorts are seperate. I didn't really get the impression of the jumpsuit when I saw it in the anime,and it would be a lot easier to sew as two peices as well. (Heck, you can probably just buy the shorts and make the top)
Icongnitonekoboy on June 1st, 2004 10:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah I could but later episodes they animate it like a jumpsuit. Which might just be cheating for budget. XD
