Captain HookIan decided to go as Captain Hook from "Peter Pan" this year. Fortunately, this is actually a pretty simple costume, without much frill or ornamentation. The most fiddly element was the hat; it took some experimentation to get the brim to stay in the proper position. The winning solution: shape some clothes hanger wire to the proper curve, then sew it in place inside a bias binding edge. Worked like a charm. The rest of the brim is stiffened with Timtex.
My only beef is that the hook prop is really too small for his hand, and I'm trying to figure out what to do about it. Maybe some kind of soft leather cover? I have some time to play around with it.
Qui Gon JinnBob really doesn't know what he's in for. I'm very happy with how his costume turned out; I just need to take in the pants a little bit.

And a view without the robe:
Everything for these costumes was drafted using Wild Ginger's Tailor Made software, so fitting was a breeze.
I now have two more work days for getting the remaining two costumes completed. So far, so good!
