This is just a quick update.
Late last night I finished Mike’s coat. It turned out pretty good! I’m excited and can’t wait to finish the rest of his costume. I don’t have photos yet but I will.
I purchased boots online for Mike that are almost identical to the $7 pair I found at Goodwill for my Link costume. I received them in the mail last week thankfully!
Major elements left to finish for the Ike costume:
- Headband – 30 min. of work
- Red skirt – 30 min.
- Pants – 10 min.
- wig – 1-2 hours
- gloves – 2 hours
- pauldron, breast plate – 4-6 hours
- black leggings on boots – 2 hours
For my costume, I will be Link again. I hope I have time to make a new pair of pants. I found a better material that’s stretchy. Should take a couple hours to make. Also my chainmail is broken. Much of it broke at my last con. It will probably take 5 hours of work at least to repair it.
I might be staying up late the next few nights to try and get everything done.
