I still can’t believe that I made it . . .
This was a rushed commission and it was due last Friday. I had only 4 days to make it and something like this take me like a month to finish it. Usually I do not like to work in a rush because I cannot afford to make a mistake [one mistake is too many] BUT I accepted because it was Hetalia England’s outfit, let’s be honest, it is not everyday that you have the opportunity to make a life-size costume like this and you’ll be paid to make it. Also it was a request from a boy…who can say NO to children?
All the materials were given to me but only one small reference picture. Well, with so little time to make the costume I couldn’t waste time searching for more pictures, so, I did what I could.
The coat was for a boy which is the reason why it looks small/short on my dress form [it barely fit].
I’m quite happy with my accomplisment… I wasn’t too sure I could make it since I’ve done only doll clothes and this was a real /life size coat.
It might not be perfect or accurate but it is my first cosplay outfit/costume and that makes me very happy.
