i’ve started patterning the bodice part of her coat/dress and will hopefully have that transferred to paper tomorrow and do the rest of the patterning on saturday so i can get fabric and begin cutting and sewing next week. i’ve also ordered boots and am considering just buying existing leggings rather than making my own since brown pleather leggings are pretty easy to find for cheap. my wig’ll be coming in probably at the beginning of next week so i can style that as well. and hopefully by the next weekend i’ll be well on my way to finishing this cosplay!!
shaun has a long way to go on thranduil, though, and that coat is much tougher than mine. he’s begun building an armature for the crown so at the very least he’ll have the wig and crown done by tbcc. if there’s any hope of getting his costume done in time, we need to get his coat patterned out this weekend as well since we’ve found a free base to print out and start with online.
