Comparison of 2011 Duty Blues and 2012 Duty Blues
There are a lot of inaccuracies with the new costume which drive me crazy, most of it due to sloppiness or inexperience, but even so, it looks SO much better than the old costume. I feel kind of bad for even making Chris walk around in the old one - it reminds me of a cheap Halloween costume that's a size too small. Not TERRIBLE for my first-ever from-scratch costume, but nothing to be especially proud of.
There's this really crazy part of me that wants to make the costume AGAIN, just so it can be even better. Yeah, totally insane. But if I did, it would be for myself or for someone who REALLY wants to wear it. I may try to fix this one up a bit, by redoing the piping (which is just a bit too thick) and possibly the suede. The piping is the only thing that REALLY jumps out at me and I'm angry with myself for not catching it before it was too late.
