I have some pictures of my Captain Jack Swedish Air Force re-badged to RAF greatcoat, and Real Jack Eagle Squadron No 1 Dress Jacket, that I made for the Torchwood con, The Hub. I also managed to acquire a leather holster, and some 1945 ATS motorcyclist boots. The holster arrived in time, so I wore that with the rest of my Captain Jack costume. The boots arrived too late, so they'll have to wait until next time, to be included in a costume in person. And I got a dummy Bluetooth headset too late, as well.
I sewed on/attached:
26 brass/gilt King's Crown buttons (most of which needed a lot of Brasso)
2 Group Captain rank slides
2 Eagle Squadron badges
1 Distinguished Flying Cross medal ribbon (from a mini reproduction)
1 RAF wings badge
2 pieces of sleeve rank braid
My mum and I also converted a black sleeveless shirt into a waistcoat, by sewing in the collar, moving the pockets and creating points. Then I sewed onto that:
1 RAF blazer badge
2 small gold eagle and crown badges (to the shoulders)
As you can imagine, my fingers ended up being very sore/punctured indeed. It was worth it, though :)
So, 8 pics at the link, of the coats and leather items. Click for bigger. More to follow, of full costumes.
Feedback loved and appreciated :) Enjoy!costume items I made/bought for The Hub
Oh, and this explains my icon, and details what happened to me and my greatcoat at The Hub ;)
