My son lost
interest in this costume, so I never completed it.
But there may be some tips of interest with how far I did get,
so I'll keep these pages up.
Bow ~ Wig ~ Belt
Oops. Guess in that
shot he's left handed.
To see how I made the Bow, clicke HERE
This was a shot
taken during his fitting... it needs to be hemmed obviously
He has since gotten a haircut, in case anyone is wondering...
Gotta go with the one on the right being the cuter of the two elves...
But I admit, I'm biased.
I was looking
through LOTR images on the internet and my son came up
behind me and saw Legolas. Immediately he asked if he
could have a costume...
I tend to make things big... going to have to resize a bit... or just let him grow into it!
We're doing a slimplified version of the costume so that mommy doesn't go insane... or, I should say MORE insane.
Here's the progress....
|To make the pattern, I took a
shirt and put it on my son, then taped where the seams
I ended up cutting 4 pieces of everything so that I could double line it
The book I used is the Visual companion and the picture I printed from www.alleycatscratch.com under characters- Legolas - Jerkin.
|I still have to make it a bit smaller, paint the designs on it and sew on the hook and eye tape in the front. But that wasn't bad for one day...|
|First I measured around my little guys wrist and made a pattern out of extra material. Then I cut the black vinyl out leaving extra space for the seams and hems.|
|I cut in around the edges of the trim so that it would sew more easily.|
