After months of procrastination I finally got back to work Isaak! I pinned the bias tape to the coat and I'm gonna try to start sewing it down tonight!

Now I just need to do the bias tape on the shoulder things and the coat cuffs, get a belt, do the shoulder patches, find and finish/remake my armband, buy the buttons, sew on the new buttons, get some fake cigars and comb my wig (again! XP)

At least I've made progress, though I'm gonna go absolutely mad if I can't find my armband after I spent my time making it! >(

I wish I could say that since I settled on cosplaying Caterina this year, I've made progress. But so far, I've just my red and white fabric, and bought the gorgeous wig from DreaM HunteR and it's on its way here. I know what gold fabric I will be buying soon to do all the detailing on the costume, but it might be a bit before I actually start work on the costume because I've got commissions to do first. But hopefully soon I will have something to show for Caterina...hopefully.

Finally got a progress photo of Isaak's coat! Picture!

It's nowhere near done since I ran out of bias tape (and the Rosenkreuz uniforms are all bias tape so that's a problem) but I think I'm off to a decent start. When I finish the armband (which I did end up having to remake, unfortunately) I'll battle my wig and dig up my dress shirt for an official progress photo.

Thankfully I have about a month left before I have to be convention ready.

Quinn, it's looking good so far. And yeah, bias tape...Trinity Blood costumes make you need to own stock in companies that make it if you don't make your own. I love your armband though.

Maybe I will get my Caterina wig on for the first time soon and get some pictures. I got it in Friday and it's amazing. I'm just terrified I will ruin all those curls.

Thanks to those who gave advice regarding Lilith Tarot card version. A colour version was released with the new artbook from Thores Shibamoto so I have finally seen the original colour. I have decided to go with matching that colour as closely as possible so this means that I'll have to delay the costume. I have not as many fabric matches in stock so it will have to wait until I can get them.

In the meantime I'm picking up where I left off with my white jacket Abel. Hopefully will have it finally finished soon.

The new artbook is lovely, and there were a few surprises, the color for Lilith's tarot card was certainly one of those.
As for me, I hope to get back to working on Empire Abel by the end of February.

And in the interest of sharing some pictures for any that want to see, we had an informal but fun TB gathering at the ALA convention:

As always, I'm enjoying seeing new TB cosplays get done! Good sewing/crafting to us all!

oh drat! found the perfect fabric for Esther's coronation gown, but it is £24.00/meter......I don't even want to get out my calculator and figure out how much it would cost for the 8-10 yards I would need in US $......*sigh*

Biscuit, if it makes you feel better I spent about that much(the US equivalent) on the stuff I found for the same thing. I sucked it up, used about three gift cards and a lot of saved money cause I knew it would be perfect...now if I only could get the motivation to WORK on it.

Biscuit and Fey, I think if its a project that you really want to do and can save up the money for then go for it. Personally the most I've ever spent on a fabric for a costume is £15GBP per meter. I did fall in love with some fabric a while back for a Lord Of the Rings costume but couldn't justify spending £34GBP per meter for it. It was the fabric actually used for the film costume which in itself would have been awesome to use but I would have been terrified of doing anything in the costume.

All my Trinity Blood costumes have been a lot cheaper but that might change with Lilith XD.

I bought a new wig for Scheherazade, i have one but i was going a little insane on the definite shade difference. (it's on my profile is curious)

Now i'm really debating as to whether i should give in and buy her thigh high white boots or not. Cause i have some other cosplay that needs worked on. Lord behold, i buy those boots and i'll be in full costume material mode and stuck with a huge list of need to get done projects.

Oh scheherazade why must you make my heart sway like thisXDD

Question, i was debating which contacts for Scheherazade would be best, but unsure of what color to use. Light purple or grey? I believe they are purple in the manga, but at times it's hard for me to tell.

Grey>>http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Vassen_...p/g25-grey.htm

Purple>>http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Vassen_...g26-violet.htm

I like the purple just because I think it would make your eyes pop even more since the gray might seem a bit dull compared to the other colors of the costume and all.

Thanks!! I was kind of leaning, but was really unsrue. XDD Purple it is! Thank you very much for your help. (>w<)

No problem! I really can't wait to see your costume done. Scheherazade is a character you don't see as much, so you already are going to stand out in the crowd of Abels and Esthers, but just looking at the picture of the wig you have for her, you are really going to be beautiful as Scheherazade. Your skin color is perfect for her, and the hair color just compliments that stunningly. I know the purple lenses will look great too. Okay, I'm done now^^
