King Jas. Test 1 by TaranJHook King Jas. Test 1 by TaranJHook
This is just to show the costumes for the film my friends and I are making called "Like Clockwork" based off the book "Capt. Hook: Notorious Youth" by James V. Hart. This is the unfinished costume for James. The pants and shoes are the last things to come in and when I get them next week there will be a more formal photo shoot of the character. I wasn't going for anything professional here, just showing the costume.

The shirt is the Aristocrat Knife Hem by Retroscope Fashions and is still available. The coat is made my Lip Service and has actually been discontinue and this is actually what had delayed autumn filming because we had to relocate this exact coat for Mike (who is playing Arthur Darling). For filming the coats will have patches put on the sleeve with the Eton College crest on them.

yeah, me too. It was supposed to come out in 2007. I'm ready to hunt down James Hart and make him right the sequel myself! haha. If he were to continue it into a series, it could get really popular.

That's what I think. I saw you and some of your friends are making a movie of the book? Good luck! If I lived anywhere near you guys I would so try out for Aunt Emily. lol Let me know if you guys ever post it on youtube or something!

That would have been cool! Emily has a little bit of a bigger part in our version, cuz it starts 2 days before James actually goes to Eton, during a family get together, and Emily is just awesome. She's ditzy, but in a wise-ass kind of way, she's really fun. Her costume is also incredible. All the clothing was Neo-Victorian/ Steampunk inspired (including the Eton College uniforms), and some of them are just so cool. They all either come from Lip Service or Retroscope Fashions. First we're gonna start with photoshoots, and then we'll get to filming short scenes. I REALLY wanna do the sword fight with James and Arthur, we've run through it a few times and it's incredible.

Oh man, you are so making me jealous here! I have been a Hook fan for years, but I haven't gotten to do anything other than pine about it (other than a plush I'm working on)lol Are you going to do the guillotine scene?

Totally doing the guillotine scene! That was the sword fight scene I mentioned earlier with James and Arthur. At the place I work one of the dudes is a fencing instructor and is helping choreograph the scene.

You're working on a plushie, I wanna see it! O.O

So far, I've just got the wig and the little jacket done. I'll be sewing up the body soon, though! I'll post it as soon as I get it finished. Although, I could do some progress shots...

I LOVE Notorious Youth! Recently I was able to locate another jacket like this, so now I can do the photo shoot I had been planning since last year. I have a buddy of mine who literally looks EXACTLY like Arthur Darling and he's really into the book too. We wanted to film a few scenes from the book, but the people who were gonna do that are currently working on another project, so we have to wait until they're done, but it would be very Neo-Victorian/ Steampunk influenced (it was the Victorian era after all), so it would look REALLY awesome.

How incredibly awesome! I would love to see these short films, seeing someone else's interpretation of the book would be an interesting find. My friend and I just love the book, she loves Arthur and I love dear King Jas but I must say I was a bit jealous of the sultana... and she even broke his heart! That just wasnt right.

Neo-Victoria/Steampunk is amazing. My friends and I are starting up our own crew.

I have a picture somewhere on here of the cast. Not the full cast, but of James, Arthur, Annanova and Roger. I know I didn't delete it, I'm just not sure where it went.

Thanks! I totally just noticed your signature, awesome. My favourite quote from James was "The Devil's on Holiday, I'm just filling in." I like that he's a wise-ass to anyone and everyone. He just kicks so much ass. There's an audiobook of this on iTunes, and it really funny the way the guy reads it. There's a lot of jokes in there that a lot of people don't pick up on when their reading and when you actually listen to it, you pick up on everything. He was such an awesome kid.

Ffffff- I'll have to get the audiobook sometime then ;u; I just recently purchased Peter and the Starcatchers so hopefully that's good too.

NO WAY!!! I just got Peter and the Starcatchers too!! I won a B&N gift card from a writing contest at my college and went out and got it. Right now I'm at chapter...7... I think... There's a LOT of chapters, like 79, but they're really short so it's not too overwhelming. I like it, it's really good, and there's actually some really funny stuff in there too, it's written really well. Though I don't agree at all with how they portray Hook (even though he's not "Hook" yet) it is the author's interpretation and I respect that... or at least try to. haha. But you'll like it, it's really good.

Don't read Hook&Jill then, or that'll change, haha. I haven't read it personally, I haven't even seen a store that carries it, but from what I've heard from someone who read it, it was basically a trashy romance novel based off of the one part in the movie that wasn't in the book. From what I've heard about it, I'm willing to put money down on that I've read better things on fan fiction.net. Stay away from that book! I have no problem with sex books, I'm reading Claiming Sleeping Beauty now and it's really good, but this, it just seems like the author is turning Hook and Wendy into Twilight characters. And the fans of the book are just the same, one here I have a fanfiction I posted and it got spammed with advertisements about Hook&Jill...even after I told the person to stop. :(

But yeah, Starcatchers is really did. Did you read Peter Pan in Scarlet yet? THAT was REALLY good! the first chapter is kind of "WTF?" just cuz of the writing style, but after you get past that and just roll with it, it's really good! I loved that book!

I LOVE this coat! I was so mad when I found out it got discontinued. Everyone needs a coat like this. If I find one I'll let you know. We ordered ours from a website called Infectious Threads. They have some REALLY cool Steampunk stuff and are one of the people supplying costumes for this along with Retroscope Fashions. It has these huge swallow tails on the back of it, I love it. And to make shit more awesome, this is accurate to what students of Eton College wore in the late 1800's. I want a school uniform like this! Hook went to a fuckin' snazzy school.

Better late than never. Steampunk stuff is awesome, I love it, it's fancy. Definitely check out some of the steamunk bands that are out there. Abney Park is my favourite. The song "Until the Day You Die" is actually gonna be the opening song for this.
