Sneaky peak of James Costume

Well I've just finished as much as I can tonight. I used up all my hobby fill in Jordan's jeep costume, so will have to pop out to SL in the morning to get some more. All that's left to do with this costume is stuff both the front and back, stitch those openings closed and then I will try it on Jai to see if it needs to be strengthened on the sides - with the jeep I sewed in some template plastic to help keep it rigid. This one may be more of a snug fit on Jai and may not need it, but I will check it before I sew up those openings too.

Here's a couple of photos, modeled not so glamorously by my lamp stand and hand lol.



I can't wait to get it finished and see Jai's face, he loved it when I showed him the James face panel yesterday!
