For all intents and purposes, Jacketmonster is finished!!
I feel like throwing a party. XD
It's not technically FINISHED finished.. because I didn't finish all the seams on the inside like I did for the pants. I was planning on it, but I'm so tired of coaxing it into weird positions on the sewing machine, I think I may do somthing else for a while. Like bootcovers or wig. Knowing myself.. I'll never get back to finishing all those seams, and it'll fray like a motherfucker on the inside, but at least it looks pretty snazzy on the outside.

I didn't have a stickpin thing that would work well for the cravat, so I improvised. I took a long safety pin, ran it through the bottom, and when it came out on the front side, I slipped a fancy jacket button on it, before pushing it back through. Now it looks like there's a fancy gold coat-of-arms pin on the cravat, when it's really a safety pin and a button XD HAHAHA
If it was permenant, I'd just sew the button on there. I need this thing for my red mage costume, though, so I can't do that. :X

Bootcovers should be fun D: Then skirt, then cape. If I do cape, I have all materials I need here.. but not the 38 gold buttons I'd need. Ugh. That will be expensive if I want to do it. Even simply-designed gold buttons come 2-a-card for 1.75. The cape will take me at least a few days, too, judging from how long the yellow bit on the front of the jacket took. I already bought the liner, though. I don't know. I guess all I can do is continue to plow through my workload and see if I have enough time for it. If I do, I'll be making a cape and whining about how many buttons it takes. If I don't, you'll be seeing my decorated buttflaps on my jacket XD Then again, if I can find an alternative of the right size, I'm totally going with that. Like if I can pull off the trick cosmicmonster taught me about rivets again, I can just find somthing the appropriate size, spraypaint them all with gold paint, and stick them on. It's what I did for some of the larger buttons on Silky's hat, and it would work here, too, if I could find some the right size. I'd have to superglue them on or somthing, though, or I'm going to be really paranoid about losing buttons all day. XP


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
