Pattern shopping, yay!

Have been pattern shopping for the first costume in my Dragon*Con 2005 set. Behold:

Dressing Vir Cotto- a pictorial tour

Vir's pants, simple and unadorned, in a dark brown, relatively light-weight wool (in deference to the late-summer Georgia sun) if I can find it.

Vir's shirt, in white cotton or muslin.

Vir's waistcoat, in navy blue satin or silk.

And this is the pattern I'm using for Vir's coat, though obviously, I won't be adding the frills you see in the illustration. The coat will also be in brown wool, with silk accents around the collar and cuffs.

Finally, I'm bucking canon a little and making Londo's cape (though, naturally, in colors that complement the rest of the outfit):

Because even though Vir never wore a cape, the swishy capey-ness of Londo's cape was something I dearly missed after the second season. And really- how cool will it be to swoop around Dragon*Con like a high-haired vampire?
