I started by tackling the "chainmail" that Trevor will wear beneath his knight tunic. I had what I thought would be a brilliant idea: I could take some grey sweatpants, put window screening over them, ink through the window screening and it would make the perfect chainmail.
Fiskateers event, I spent hours stamping this little circle about 8 million times. I stopped just above the knee and am crossing my fingers that I won't have to add more rows. My gnarled, sore fingers. That was a LOT of stamping. And I haven't done the top yet. Ack!
We found this foam sword for 50 cents at Target. The shape and size are perfect, but the colors of the handle are really weird. Red and green? Why?
So that's the progress so far! Trevor picked out the material for his tunic, but I haven't been brave enough to start sewing it. We also have some fabric to make my cone-hat. We weren't able to find matching fabric, so we got cream. I'm not sure how that's going to look, but for now I'm ignoring that issue.
As for Steve's dragon costume, I'm about 99% sure that isn't going to happen. I still haven't had a good idea of how to make it. As I look at the calendar, I see that a dragon costume isn't going to be a priority. He owns a Renaissance outfit that might fit the theme, or we might dress him as a king. That sounds so much easier than a dragon.
