Hi folks !
This is my work on Darth Revan, the mighty Sith. I'm eager to work and a bit terrorised to fail so my life is full of emotions theses days
I started it on the 13th of November and plan on finishing it on the 13 of December for a special screening I want to attend with two friends (who will be also in costumes ^^)
(so I created a google folder to stock the pictures cause my upload rate in absurdly low right now ^^ : https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Fj02hdtmweervFOLevfZZocHB35k8Rzu?usp=sharing )
I found a nice fabric in a big fabric market in Paris that seemed okay for the hood and I bought a bunch more to try and to the hakama because why spare a challenge when you can (barely) afford ?
I also baught some raw leather to make the armor, and thinner black armore for the middle part of the armor. I also find a nice pair of boots (kind of cheap)
First I started with the hood, because it seemed the easiest part.
Spoiler alert, it wasn't. I started with a prototype in another fabric to try and see how things went and how I should assemble the parts and it gave me this.
That looked okay so I decided to cut in the real fabric and managed to do something like this : (bonus cat)
The problem is that the pleat ar not really straight and the pleat don't cover nicely the one below, andthey aren't narrow enough for my liking.
Long thing short I'm gonna redo this as soon as possible.
I followed with the cloak and it was better, easier. I did a litlee bit of math to get sure I got enough fabric, pin it together, sew and it I like the look of it.
I took some pictures of the first Hood with the cloak and it seems fine for nw but I'll change the hood.
I follow with the hakama and followed this tutorial : http://thecosplaychronicles.blogspot.fr/2010/11/how-to-cosplay-making-hakama-simple-way.html
It wasn't so hard once I get used to make the pleat so I managed it quite okay
Now what's left ?
Armore (back and front) : in hard leather
Belt, in hard leather
O ring in wood ?
Gloves in thin leather or to buy
Arm protection in hard leather
Mask, probably to buy I really don't have the skill for this stuff
Anyway this is it for now, I'll keep you folks up to date as soon as I make progress !
