About this Costume
Construction Details:
The hat and pants were just bought, though I may go back and cover the hat in a different material one of these days. The wig was a long curly wig that I cut and styled a little. I made the coat out of wool, broadcloth lining, and a weird silver faux leather that I found at work. I drafted the pattern, fitted everything, top-stitched all the silver. All that good stuff. The main challenge was the back shoulder panel (since I've never done one before) and the bow, which defies all laws of physics. I ended up putting a medium gauge wire into the piping on the bow in order to give it its shape and the needed lift. Aside as a side note: I LOVE MY BUTTONS OMG They have little British style crests on them. :3 *loves* The shirt sucked to make mainly because shirts don't act like that. The cravat also sucked because it should actually by a double layered tie. Either way, those two were a lot of trial-and-error. But alas, I think they both came out okay at least. Not too much to say about the gloves. Basic glove pattern with a paint job on the back. The gun was actually made by omnichan's husband (HOMG LOVE YOU) and I just painted the designs on it. Then I just made the holster to size out of vinyl. Yay, vinyl!
Personal Thoughts:
It was love at first sight ( so to speak ^^; ) with Gil. Visually, his design is gorgeous and character-wise, he's easily relate-able and a very intriguing person!
