Comic Con is on this year, in 2 weeks - but I have not bought tickets yet. Having just come out of lockdown, and quarantine as well in my house! - I just can’t see how it can still run.
I have been working on my Outlander patched shirt, but thought that instead I would finally get around to finishing posting about the Thranduil costume I made for Comic Con in 2019.
I used an op shop pattern to start with, and made a muslin out of calico. I drew texts lines to mark the different segments, and cut them out to make the new pattern pieces, with help from some online posts I found which showed where the sewing lines are.
The silver/ green tinged fabric was a super lucky find from Spotlight, it was basically the first thing we found, and was exactly what I was looking for. Plus we were in Spotlight during the last day of a “ 40% off everything” sale, excellent timing!
After checking & double checking the pattern pieces, consulting online posts, and lots of reference pics from the movie and making-of DVD’s, I cut out the pieces from the silver fabric and started sewing! I numbered each piece with stickers so they wouldn’t get mixed up, it was a bit like making a quilt.
