New Symbol

November 26, 2005

After looking at the old shirt, and drawing several variations, I think the final symbol might look something like this.

Joker Tux creation date

November 26, 2005

This coming Monday, the 28th, I’ll be dropping off the supplies for the Joker Tux to the sewing lady.  I still need to buy the shirt and get a final bat symbol design for it.  I’m still waiting on the black gloves.  After all 3 of those things are done, it’s bat cape time. -H

Shirt website found

November 21, 2005

This site looks to have the right style of shirt I need for old white eyes.   http://www.eastbay.com/catalog/productdetail.cfm?TID=5555-38210523320138231164915-0&module=productDetail&action=view&sku=10512-20&model_nbr=51448&supercat=clothing&id=0&mvp=   I’ll probably have to get his pants at another site, but that shouldn’t be to big a deal as after looking at my boards, we don’t really see so much of Bat’s legs.  Except maybe his […]

Gloves and a meeting…

November 16, 2005

Talked to the sewing lady and set up a date to get started on the Tux.  November 25th.  I also bought a set of gloves today.  I’ll be more than likely sewing some leather like material on to them and maybe make the bat arm things out of wood.  I’m not sure.  I’m sure I’ll […]

Got all the coat Materials

November 14, 2005

Supplies bought!  Package of it as well as pattern and concept art and ideas in the works.  I’ll be calling the sewing lady tomorrow and setting up a metting.  I’ll proably pay her upfront and let her know that if it cost more, let me know and if it looks good, expect a tip.  Add […]

Sewing Lady found!!!

November 13, 2005

So, this Jackie lady said the cost would be around $40, she believes she will need about 2 weeks, and doesn’t see the alterations I want being a problem.  I gave her a 70% enthusiasm rating too.  So, I’ll gather all my materials and sketches, and arrange a meeting for this costume to be made.  Next, […]

More on coat…

November 10, 2005

Here are 2 sheets I made.  The first explains the alterations I want to the original pattern.  The second is a question sheet to be used for each of the sewing canidates. -H

Cards out the @$$!!!

November 10, 2005

So I went to the sewing shop as promissed.  I came back with 4 cards, 3 have numbers on the other side also.  A total of 7 people willing to sew in the area.  I got the pattern, I know the alterations, this should go smooth.  I will make a stop back at the sewing […]

I have given a name to my pain…

November 9, 2005

And it is sewing.  Afer another valid yet failed attempt to make the Joker Tux with tails, I’m starting to see that the quality I want will take up more time and effort than I can give.  So….  in the sewing shop in Rapid City, there is a collection of business cards of people who […]

Startin over on Tux, but this time it’s going good!!!!

November 6, 2005

So, after a crash and burn on the first attempt, I’ve started the tux over again.  This time, instead of making slight alterations where I think they should be, I’m extending the patter out by an inch.  That should give me all the room I need.  So far, I’ve got the center piece done.  Didn’t think […]

Sleeves

November 4, 2005

So the sleeves are kinda done.  They are kinda tight around my shoulders and under arms, but I don’t want it baggy.  I gotta look skinny.  I will make the whole thing basically, maybe leave out the tails, see if it fits ok, then go from there.  I suspect it will turn out fine.  Then […]

Sew-man Begins!!!

November 2, 2005

After some much needed R&R, I’m back on track.  I’ve organized the pieces I’ll need to cut, and sew.  I will be starting with the sleeves.  I figure by making those first, I can guess very easy how much alteration will need to be made.  Luckly, as shown in the pic, my Mum bought a new […]
