 I didn't get called in to teach today and I wasn't scheduled to work  so I hit the Goodwill and Wal-mart  and found jeans and shoes for the costume. Tonight I managed to finish hand sewing  all of the corduroy onto the collar of the jacket . It looks great! It adds such a nice richness to the jacket and makes it look a bit less cheep.  If I have time tomorrow I'll start on the elbow and shoulder pads, but I now have all of the base pieces needed for the costume. YAY !

I won't be finished with the sleeves for the sweeter in time for time gate, not even close, but that's ok it'll be done buy Dragon*con.

I will definitely want a picture of your Watson next week.

How did you find a leather jacket this time of year? I've been to several Goodwills looking for leather to mutilate to my own costuming purposes and can't find any.

Really? mine's got several, mind you many of them scream early 90's but I've seen a few good ones (even a few that would be great for Doctor 9). Are you looking for any particular style? I'd be happy to keep an eye out for you

The one I bought to cut up was a fake leather, but it had the right sort of shine (not too much) for what i needed, plus it was just under five bucks)

Just think: this time next week!Squee!

Looking for some brown leather, preferably kind of rough, to make a holster belt for my River Song. But I finally gave in this week and bought a yard of some decent looking faux leather at Hobby Lobby, so that'll probably do me. Thanks though!

One week! YAY!
