Patches and badges and pins oh my! My Ace jacket is coming together. Well at least the stuff that goes on it is coming together - I think the jacket itself is too small, bah. The jacket itself fits, but for Ace, it needs to be more oversized. It’s definitely puffy and big, but not baggy enough. I think rather than attempting to order again online I’ll have to track it down in store to confirm it’s got the right look.
You know, it’s rather ironic that I spent more than a year working to lose weight and look good in costume, and what costume do I choose to do but one that is notorious for making people look huge and puffy. One of the first things that hits you about Sophie Aldred when you meet her in person (aside from hearing her talk and going OMG it’s ACE!) is that she is tiny. That wasn’t something I expected having watched her in that big puffy jacket.
