Picture of Biggsy's Miscellanea

So recently, I had a breif conversation with BrittLiv (Go check her i'ble feed out, it's awesome!) in which she commented on some pictures I tagged onto the back end of a recent i'ble. I linked her to my Faceache* photo album, but due to her not havnig faceache she couldn't see them, she suggested that I upload them here, just as a way of showing off what I have done in the past... I don't have step by steps written for them, but I shall give you a brief blurb on each

Now I should mention that back in my uni days I had a small buisness making historical and fantasy costume and props... I was asked to make alot of custom designs and well, I think I was good at it... I still make the odd bespoke piece, and to this day I help make costume for my firends...

I hope you enjoy...

*Faceache--> Facebook... hehe

Step 1: Avast!

This is a Pirate frock coat I made for my mate Fozz... I make alot of costume things for Fozz... Unfortunatly EVERYTHING has to be made one size, then tailored to him... He sometimes even refers to me as his personal Tailor! <doh>

The coat is made out of some VERY heavy curtain material... and is lined with a nice silk... this would have cost a fortune if we hadn't gone to one of those cheep roll end fabric shops!

Step 2: Captain Biggsy!

Every year in my last work place we would dress up for 'Children in need', and in 2008 we decided to become Disney charictors for the day... Not being one to buy things off the shelf (and having a craving to make another set of period correct pirate get up) I decided to model myself on Captain James Hook.. The Hat, coat, breaches and shirt are all hand made... and the breaches are even historically accurate hehe!

I love this costume

Wow it looks very real! I'm actually considering making a female dwarf character, and in NERO Alliance the race requirement is facial hair no matter the gender. Will definitely try this out! :D
