And the big reveal is here.....

WARNING!! Picture heavy post coming up!!

Finally finished the 'Aragorn' costume for my son - I was quite pleased with it though personally I wouldn't have chosen these colours for the shirt and cloak but what do I know? I'm sure in the dark at a party it'll look great for the five minutes he keeps it all on. Anyway, so rare I get him to pose for the camera I'm going to be a bore and post lots of piccies.

We haven't got the full effect as he won't have the sword till he gets there (a replica I believe - I hope it's legal to walk about with it), the bow (also coming from a friend) or the Lorien Leaf Brooch which his girlfriend is bringing. He doesis however wearing a replica of the Evenstar. He also made a rather nifty quiver but I forgot to buy the sticks for the arrows (my bad) so there hardly seems any point just carrying that about.

Yes, it is just a sheet but it has been made
 into a proper cape with hood.
Practising his moves for tonight

I don't think Vigo has anything to worry about but
I think he's great!!

Well the sewing machine is away and won't be out again for a while if I have anything to do with it!! Time for some form of papercraft or  inky messing, I have missed my craft room this week, the dining room  is not as cosy!!

I received some stash in the post today as I won a £20 voucher from J & C Creations for this entry in their last challenge. Current challenge is Easter ands runs for about 3 weeks from now.

You can never have too many flower or leaf dies can you?

So now I think I deserve some time to play!!
