Cosplayer Pirogoeth > Costume of Tim Bisley from Spaced
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I noticed that he wears three different pullover jackets over the course of the series. I found a fleece one at Goodwill that is relatively close to the one he wears.
The pants are also from Goodwill. They're slightly worn, definitely long enough, and even have a drawstring on the inside so I'll never need a belt!
I was originally going to go for a beanie (knit cap) that was close enough on the main color and just deal with the lack of 'Chocolate'. Then I found a pattern for it through Ravelry. I used KnitPicks CotLin in Loden (2 skeins) and Moroccan Red (1 skein). Then I lost that hat. I don't know where it is. So I decided to make a new one. I've ordered some more CotLin, this time in Sprout (2 skeins) and luckily I still have enough Moroccan Red. I've made a couple of changes to the pattern. Instead of a 2x2 rib along the bottom, I'm going with a 1x1 considering Tim's hat has none. Also, after watching the show again and paying more attention to the hat, I have it go straight up instead of contouring it in. I'm also considering making a little more space in between the words this time.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Tim is such an awesome character! I love both him and Daisy. I feel like I'm a combination of the two sometimes. But Tim just looks like so much more fun to be, right now. Hence why he's getting done first.
- Wig Review
- It needed some trimming on the sides and back and some serious brushing, but that's about it. It's great!
