OK, these are quick scans of the prints we got, so pardon the image quality.

Gothy prom cheesiness under the cut )

Last weekend at The Eighteenth Amendment of Gallifrey One [livejournal.com profile] britgeekgrrl, [livejournal.com profile] bovil and I debuted the Saint George Spirits Special Forces TAC* Squad uniforms. A full convention report will be forthcoming, but in the meantime here are some snapshots.

Many thanks to St. George Spirits for letting us use their (copyrighted and trademarked, no doubt) Semper Imbibo artwork for the SGSSF. The Dragon wrapped around the cross of St George included in that artwork is also their legal property. The TAC Squad insignia is copyright KPRoche, as are the Up, Whiskey and Absinthe departmental patch designs

*Tactical Alcohol Consumption.

Arrived at UPS at 8:50 this morning.

They opened at 9:00AM; I was second in line.

Miracle of Miracles, both packages were there.

Now I have a little bit of sewing to do, but I've got all the pieces.

As [livejournal.com profile] bovil mentioned in this post, after going to the St. George Spirits open house, we decided to make St George Spirits Special Forces uniforms.

(We're doing this with the full knowledge of the SGS owner and staff, btw).

Ultimately, we're going to want to create embroidered insignia (Semper Imbibo!) but we can start by using our ol' friend inkjet iron-on fabric.

So, here's the list of components:


We're working on the branch of service patches as well. We're going to go with the patches-on-velcro trick that the real military are using now, rather than ironing them directly onto the shirt like we did for the LiveJournal Commandos, so when/if we get embroidered patches they'll be easy to swap in. They also look better, because even with a printed badge, you can satin stitch around the edge onto the hook patch which gives them a bit of texture.

Who wants to join the silliness?
