An assortment of cogs from ebay. Just what every girl needs! I should be on track to have all my sewing finished by the end of the month, so I can spend a month making props. I will have a steam powered violin, I swear, even if I have to make it myself (though if anyone has a spare old instrument that they want to donate?)

I can't decide whether to give Zephyr a tri-corn hat or a top hat. He has a blue velvet frock coat and a pirate shirt, so a tri-corn would probably look appropriate, but I want to put a pair of goggles on the hat, and a top hat would probably look better for that. Wig is styled, so I just need to finish sewing bloody Greensleeves into the waistcoat, sort out trousers and boots and he's pretty much done.

I still need to find fabric for Amari's skirt. Everthing I see I like is raw silk, which is going to get expensive. I need to head over to Bristol and check out fabric land. Jacket is done apart from cuffs, and top is almost finished, just needs more trim. Wig is on it's way; leggings and boots need sorting as well.

Amy just needs holdups and boots modded, shouldn't be more a days work.

Kirara needs a back end, paws and a head.

Oh dear, it almost sounds like I'm organised. This can't be right!

You're more organised than I am. I have one main costume planned for Aya - and I haven't made a start on that. No, I tell a lie : I've bought boots (about a year ago!) which I need to modify. That's as far as I've got XD

Goggles can go arround neck or actully be worn, so I vote for tricorn :)
ALSO:
Hooraay for steam-powered violins. Is the tune inscribed on punched-cards?

Good idea! I hadn't even thought of that!

(The mechanics of steam powered violins were something I hadn't really considered.)

I... I... I don't understand. How can you not consider the mechanics of steam-powered violins?

Cogs ... as in, cogs? As in round things with teeth? Riiiiiight. I'm curious as to what you're going to be using them for!
