Okay, so here's the progress I've accomplished so far with the outfit.
The shirt is about 65% done. Still need to make the other sleeve, add the cuffs, facing, and buttons. His fellowship shirt has barely visible pinstripes on the sleeves, so of course I had to stitch my own.
I also hand colored his suspender pattern...that took longer than the shirt, bahahaaaa. They were originally a solid tan color. But of course, being the nerd I am, I had to make it accurate, with proper measurements and spacing and everything.
I didn't put on my Frodo makeup for this. I figured I'd just do that once I finished the shirt tomorrow. (hopefully)
I also still need to make the suspender clips to attach them to the pants. Then start on the waistcoat.
I don't know if I'll be making his coat and cloak as well. Depends on how much time and money I have left once I get everything else done. It's not necessary, since he's seen in several scenes without them on, but would still be nice to have. This is in December, after all. Might come in handy.
Same conditions go for the pipe.

Nice work so far. I like the way that sleeve turned out

Oh my goodness, you look identical to Frodo! This cosplay is going to be incredible, I can't wait to see the finished version!
