The X-Men Rogue catsuit...(pictures)

Howdie doodle!!

I know this has been hugely sporadic, and it's certainly been a bit of a "Sod's Law" scenario for February. But, I'm keeping to actually making the suits for those who invested the time to send me an e-mail and be into the whole idea :-) I'm not abandoning this, oh no no no.

So! Whilst Lee the Bee's suit is now ready to be sewn together (currently hanging in the living room). I had a change of dates for the Rogue catsuit so went on a bender of around 48 hours worth of grading, erasing, cutting, re-cutting, pinning, sewing, panicking (when my overlocker packed it in), scheming, sewing, hand sewing (on the train into work!!) and Urgent delivery posting...

I think I should have shares in Mountain Dew Energy, I went through a lot. I don't normally, but 40min meditation stints will only get you so far.

So a few pictures then :) these are before I sewed the legs together so i could see the fit thus far.

So the outfit was worn during the comicon this weekend gone by Fleur :-)

I'm handing in my resignation tomorrow. EEP!!! Next suit, the black velvet one ^_^

Head prototype mkII (filmed)

Howdie...running on pure coffee at the moment, and took a break to make a video and post it here...Things are finally progressing nicely. So here's an 8min video of me showing off the test hood and rambling on about things and stuff and a small hint to exciting changes in the near future. ^_^

Lee the bee bodice

Just incase you think I've fallen off the planet. I'm holding on with my shears! Doing something different with a full leg gusset.

Can't wait to get home from work! Last night I was up till 5am *zombie*

When you think you have time.

Quick post from my phone...i haven't been home since Friday Morning due to last minute work shenanigans. No streaming tonight as I'm carrying on with Lee the Bee's suit when I get back later, then catching up on much needed sleep.

When you think you have time to do something, it gets snatched from under you. :-/

Still onwards and upwards!

Fabric delivered!! (filmed)

I got slightly caught out by the delivery guy, but I threw on my blue suit and ran downstairs to sign for the package. I also managed to clip on my tiny Veoh "Muvi" cam thingy around my neck so there's some footage of that too.

Due to sensitive info n stuff I've had to deliberately cut some stuff out. And as I'm not on my other Mac that has proper editing software, you're going to have to make do with the really jarring cuts I've done using Quicktime instead :-P

Also! Ignore the state of my living room! My flat is still a building site due to painting, and not deciding what I'm doing with the walls, nor deciding if I want black or red shelves installed and not really having the time to sit down and think about it properly (the joys of doing a "void" property up).

So, just so you can get an idea of how ridiculously tiny this thing actually is:

It's a real shame about the audio quality over anything else (I'm an audio person so it's the first thing that concerns me over video) and the video quality is quite poor too. Still I don't think it's dreadful, so can be clipped to my forehead (or somewhere nearby) and I can run around to get some first person-style reactions and such in the future.

No fabric...

For the first time ever, I'm experiencing problems getting my fabric delivered. After 2 attempts at delivery I've now paid (again) for a guaranteed pre-10am delivery and will have to opt for sitting outside my damn door to make sure the delivery guy doesn't run away with my package again.

Soonest date is next Tuesday....Grrrr.

I fancy sitting outside in my blue zentai....and my pink bathrobe...watching the morning go by till they come....or I have to go to work...

You want me to film it n upload it? It'll go live on here Tuesday evening, if you do ^_~
