I didn't want to go this long without an update, but there is little to report on the cape front. I'm not satisfied with a couple different parts of the current technique, so I'm going back to the drawing board. I need to source a better material for the inner of the cape, and I have a lead on that.
But more importantly, I have switched focus. For the past three months, I have really been focused on getting myself into better shape. Don't get me wrong, I was not OUT of shape, I just wasn't where I wanted to be. Especially considering the fact that I'd actually like to wear this suit for halloween someday. It strikes me as odd that I am spending so much time on getting a suit perfect, but one that I won't look perfect in. Follow me??
I hired a personal trainer a couple months ago, and have been very consistent, save for the two weeks I took off to go to Italy. I'm seeing good results, but not phenomenal results. I will stick with it though.
And work on the costume has not stopped, it has just slowed down a bit. By the time I get home from work, it's about time to work out. And by the time I'm done working out, I have little energy left for working on projects. But don't worry, I'll get back to it!
