Green Coat by nolwen Green Coat by nolwen
A coat i made for my original character. its loosely based off of an 18th century mens coat.
i drafted the pattern, and dyed the cotton velvet. the black leather is from my Mom's old pants from the 80s. i made the staff as well useing the good old fashioned blacksmithing technique.

hey, not sure what makes this lovelier, the colors on the jacket and hair, or the fact that you made it all...

I'm envious of your tailoring skill....

i like this one too, i think it's really cool how you have used the leather in the jacket. I'm a massive fan of blacksmithing and that staff looks brillant, it's such a cool shape. Great stuff!!!!

excellent!! i'am in the planning stages of a graphic novel, and she's one of the main characters. i'm sure as i do some test pages i'll post them, but i can't promise it will be anytime soon (as much as i'd love it to be)

i'm glad you like the costume too ^^
