TUXEDO MASK YES. Also it is very interesting to see your rego forms - I'm one of those that never knows what to put and how to format it.

Yeah totally agreeing with the forms! Nice to read up on some leather adventures as I'm looking into working with that for a project!

Hopefully I have time to make the TM costume over Chirstmas. There's still a lot of preparation though.

For instance: making an ironing board:

I has progress!

Spoiler:
 

The waistcoat took about a month to make. All traditional tailoring, mostly hand stitching because there are stitches you can't do on a machine. I think the result is not too bad considering my lack of tailoring experience. I'm not happy with the style though. I forgot to double check with the reference pictures. If I have time I'll make another one.

I've also been making top hats out of fosshape. But I'm not very satisfied with the results. Looks great from a distance, up close you can see every flaw in the working of the material. Painting makes it worse: parts that have been exposed to more heat take the paint differently. It's not that fosshape is bad; I just haven't figured out how to use it effectively yet.

At this point I'm moving straight on to the jacket. I expect it will take at least 2 months. Again, lots and lots of hand stitching. The plan is to finish the whole project for Auckgeddon.

Looks like it's been almost a year since I last posted here. So, firstly, thanks for the nice comments. I'm feeling motivated now to continue the TM project (which I've been procrastinating on for far too long).

In the meantime, let me show off my latest cosplay project, which I wore to Wellygeddon.

Spoiler:
 

The wig and glasses were problematic, but otherwise I was please with how it came out.

There is a patch on the right sleeve depicting the Round Table Alliance logo. I made it out of some vinyl I had left over from another project, and the design was applied by stencil. Turns out there's a bit of a trick to it:

Spoiler:
 

Next, attaching the patch to the sleeve. The problem here is that the vinly sticks to the sewing machine foot, then the fabric bunches up underneath. Also, pins and basting stiches are out of the question because the marks are permanent. The correct solution is to use one of those fancy feet no one has. Here's what I did:

Spoiler:
 

One more thing before I sign off, the patterns for the top part of the jacket:
