Reignson / silverbane did the paint job. He also blackened the boots and belt and made the holster for the potions. The potions are a mix of corn syrup and pigments and fine glitter.
For the Wizard's Hat, I watched this video tutorial by CraftGyver on YouTube. I didn't exactly 'follow' the steps, I went by the directions on the fusing interface, which was way more difficult than the video. My interface was double sided and medium firmness. I think I have enough material left over and another type of interfacing, much less firm and not fusing. So, I might make myself a wizard hat as well. I made an additional wand, but it's not finished yet.
The flash makes the fabric look bluer than it is. It is closer to the color of the link fonts on this skin, a teal blue. It's a satin fabric from JoAnn Fabric's costume section. The lining is some black fleece I've had forever. I've found if it is ironed, it is like a faux suede and so soft. The jerkin is made from the scrap material bin at JoAnn's, it is a padded quilted fabric, perfect for padded armor! The trim is gold metallic ribbon, which one roll was just barely enough. Eep. Good thing I didn't try to trim everything.

Most of the supplies, I already had, so I only spent just under $30 at JoAnn's. I had coupons, plus a teacher discount. Here's a full list of all supplies.
