My AoA Loki coat. I don’t know whether to love or hate Jamie mckelvie for this. XD I did take a couple of liberties with the design, primarily with the hem — when looking for a pattern, I found this one with a flair that i just fell in love with. The coat probably wouldn’t have been half as hard to make if I had just stuck with the simple hem ….

Because of the pattern I ended up choosing, I didn’t have enough of the pseudo-suede that originally I bought for the coat, so I filled it in with crushed panne — at the risk of being immodest, I rather like how it turned out! :) I didn’t do a lining, though — too hot (and too hard for my skill level, methinks).

The “leather” straps are ribbons covered in tooled pleather and hot-glue — while the coat itself is sewn, everything else is hot-glued on, because I didn’t want seams (and I’m still a pretty clumsy seamstress, having just begun machine-sewing about 2 months ago). The buckles are spray-painted plastic sliders (except the back one, which is an ordinary metal buckle but also spray-painted). The braided parts are also ribbon, satin for the overlay and this glittery struff for the arms. The gold trim is ribbon too, also with glitter.

You’ll have to wait to see the whole thing on me (yes, the *whole* outfit, including the boots — which admittedly didn’t turn out too hot, so my next big cosplay expense will be a proper pair) until after I put it all together in the comfortably air-conditioned hotel room at Dragon Con on Sunday. (Pray the heat in Hotlanta doesn’t kill me at the big, outdoor Marvel photoshoot! And, well, that this all stays together! XD)

Also tagging kierongillen and alewing (I’d in-post tag Garbett, but I don’t know if he even has a tumblr ….)

Okay, so maybe you can’t actually have Thomas and Jimmy in real life, but hopefully you can at least ‘enjoy’ them on your special day ;-)

And may it be a very very…

Body armour for AoA Loki. It’s a little stiffer than I’d like (I’d tried doing the trim with gold bias tape, then with just the fabric without the foam backing, and neither worked), and the front ended up a tad shorter than I’d like, and some elements are a bit crooked/uneven (though not as much as the photo makes it look! XD), but it looks better now than it had ….

Thomas Barrow Fandom August Birthdays

lizzy384:

Good afternoon everyone (it’s afternoon here, so deal with it!)

The Underbarrow Birthday List is still in the making. If you have been away or just missed it or had forgotten (I know a few of you have liked it but haven’t added yourself…wasn’t sure if you liked the idea but didn’t want to be…

Oh! Guess I’ve been out of the tags for a while — didn’t know about this! If it’s not too late to be added …

Birthday: August 21st, 1975

Name: WolfenM

Fave Thomas prompts: redemption, hurt/comfort. Don’t have a ship, per se, but I’m fine with Thommy or Thomas/Edward. Mostly what like is him being sick or hurt (especially if it hppens because he dared to be helpful for a change) and others feeling bad for him (and bad for being mean to him) — the more people the better. Them learning about previous abuse/mistreatment that led to him being as he is is also great! :)
