|Mak Kau...M Nasir is sooo hot as Hang Tuah!|
The hubby was planning to rent The Mad Hatter's costume for his D&D. But just 2 days before it, he told me he thought he'd rather buy himself a new shirt than pay $90 bucks to rent a costume.
So I said,"OK. If the theme is Once Upon a Time, why don't you go as ...Hang Tuah? You can wear your baju melayu, and I can make you a tanjak (Malay headdress)"
I've made a tanjak before. Well i've made one, once, when I was the wardrobe manager for Causeway II, a play which was written by Alfian Saat and produced by Teater Ekamatra. I had made a tanjak out of blue sequinned material. It was awesome!
I told my hubby I'd do the same for him. I promised him I'd head to spotlight after work the next day and get some material and sew him the tanjak. But a work meeting went on way too long the night before and I ended up not being able to get the material.
Luckily for me, i had some spare material from another project
I was working on that I could use!
I also ended up actually having to work on something that Saturday, so I had to get hubby to do most of the work. And he did such a great job with it too!
I loved the star motif so much that I convinced him to also put on my favourite blue star brooch that I had bought from Indianapolis!
The final product! =)
I was real happy with it and of course, made him do some fake-O silat poses for our photo album!
