So I finally finished my coat for my cosplay of Hartia from Sorcerous Stabber Orphen! It took FOREVER Because that coat was pretty much a piece of crap starting off. If you look at some of my REALLY old and kinda crappy pictures as Charden Flamberg, you can see what it looked like before.)
I had to take all the buttons off the front and the hood off the back, sew down the collar, and sew the front so it would no longer fasten off to the side. Then I added the red trim and put in some snaps, and I replaced the buttons on the pockets. It was a LOT of work because re-stitching where the hood had been, sewing down the collar, sewing up the front, and adding the trim, snaps and new buttons WAS ALL DONE BY HAND. My thumbs haven't been this sore since I was ten and my dad got my addicted to his old battlestar galactica handheld game X_X (I couldn't find a thimble.)
The only thing left to do for Hartia now is find some pants to match my coat...oh and get some makeup for the freckles. I actually do have real freckles, you just can't see them here 'cause the camera flash on my phone give bad glare sometimes
