Since we don't have a progress thread for this year, I figured I would go ahead and start one. So here it is. You can talk about what you're doing for your cosplays and post progress images here. Trust me, it's really good motivation, seeing what others are up to.

I'll start.

As I said in the Repo! thread, I'm doing Amber Sweet's Zydrate Anatomy outfit and the majority, if not all of, my boyfriend's GraveRobber.

Amber:
-Have: leather underbust corset (on order), black lace for shrug, black stretch pleather for the bustier under the corset.
-Found: Nylon straps and rigging for garterbelt contraption, boots (on sale for $42), wig.
-Need to find: black sequin fabric for hot pants (yes, it's SEQUINS D: The costume designer said so), how I'm going to make the bustier, bra and rhinestones to cover it, all the buckles, studs, etc for the underbust corset.

Graverobber:
-Have: base set of boots to alter and hope they look like the Demonia Reaper-30's he wears in the movie because there's no way in hell I'm shelling out $119 for those things
-Found: Wig, extensions for the wig, makeup, belt buckle, base for Zydrate gun and zydrate vials
-Need to find: Pale yellow dress shirt to destroy, find out what he wears under said shirt, blue scarf, vinyl for his tool kit shoulderbag, pants, base for glove, fabric for coat.

...Graverobber will be the death of me, I swear. I asked Terrance if he could list what colors went into his hair (I know blue and platinum blonde, and I think I see some red/pink and lavender) but I dunno if he'll get back to me on it.

Looks like I'm shoving Rin and Archer (Fate/Stay Night) back onto my To-Do list for another con.

I haven't even fully decided which costumes I'll bring, but so far it looks like the only work I'll need to do is fixing up older ones. The list so far is Matt from Digimon 02, Dr. Forrester from MST3k, and Ichabod from Far Out There (yeah, I'm cosplaying my own comic)

Matt: Just got a much needed new jacket today, but need to transplant the buttons from the old one to the new one.
Dr. F: I NEED a new doctor/lab coat, but that's more than I can afford right now. In the meantime, I need to repair the wig and get a new mustache.
Ichabod: I'm still figuring out what all needs to be done here, but I know I'll be sewing a new hat from scratch (which I already have the materials for, thankfully)

...and then there's whatever other costumes I get possessed to do at the last minute. (There's always at least one, it never fails)

Let's see, I'm working on my Iyrogi plushie for Kobato (so didn't spell that right) and I plan to take advantage of all of Jo Annes coupons and go fabric shopping soon.

I think I'm giving up my Pavi cosplay because I decided I suck at it and I don't have time, plus Repo cosplays getting to be overdone and I rather not be laughed at. Plus I don't have the funds to make a decent mask and I don't feel like buying a wig.

So that leaves me with:
Chrona- Done pretty much. I wanna make a Ragnarok sword, but funds.

Sebastian Michaelis (3 (maybe 4) versions)
Normal!Sebastian- done! Need to replace my phantomhive pin (lost it bui) and get a black tie
Circus!Sebastian AKA Black- top hat, black ribbon, make little skull pendant
Rave!Sebastian (from the punk outfits)- get chains, locks, mod a jacket, and make the shirt
Whipped!Sebastian- ....uh....shred a shirt? DONE.

HAHA. I'm still trying to figure out the costumes i'm going to do. Feldt definitely won't happen, and now Yuki MAY not happen, cause my friends are doing a Avatar group and a skit for the masq involving Silent Hill nurses...so I have to do those. *flails*

I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to cosplay. x_x I'm doing my best to make Amber and Graverobber as accurate as I can just because the ones I've seen have looked a bit...rushed. I don't like that it's getting overdone so quickly, but I've loved the costumes from the beginning and there's no way in hell I'm letting the critics stop me now!

Also, got some very nice faux distressed leather for Graverobber's coat today. Unfortunately, I can't start work on the sewing until after I finish a non-cosplay sewing commission. FFFFFF-

Hmm... Progress....

Well, I've got all my reference pictures.. which is the biggest part for me. I'm usually too lazy to even look for them sometimes. I just go by what I remember. XP

Anyway~

KH Kid Sora - have shirt, need to work on pattern for shorts... -glares at procrastinating sister-
KH Kid Kairi - Sis' friend has the money.. just needs to give it to me so I can get her wig and then I need to work on everything else. I have the cloth choice chosen, but I need the money to get it..
KH Kid Riku - Let's see... I have... nothing. D: And this is my own cosplay. T3T Well, I'm going to be doing patterns soon. Can't this weekend seeing as I'm going to Momocon.

Tsukasa - Hmm.. I have patterns chosen to modify? Is that progress? Heh.. Then again, Tsukasa won't debut until September at AWA.

Ahhh, spring break on the beach, working on costumes... doesn't get any better than this =)

Still tweaking Lightning's skirt - curved zippers for seams. Thaaanks, Nomura. Doing the hem now, and I'll get the waistband on later tonight.

Have: "base" boots and leather for modding them, fasteners for the coat, clay for the armor, most all of the fabric and leather that I need for the construction of the coat, black glove, and the black thing cinched about her waist there.

Found: An old pair of pants made out of blue leather that I can dismantle for her gloves.
Buckles. Lots and lots of buckles and fasteners.

Need: Another haircut, yellowish leather belt, the paler shade of leather for the front of her boots, and yellow LEDs.


As for my other costume, Needlewoman is going to be buried in the ground and soaked in water for a week as soon as I get back from break. Her pants and bandages need a bit of wear and tear on them. Then it's out into the sun for some exposure for a few weeks, then into the washing machine for their date with the wire brush.

Found a gorgeous wig for her, though - took forever to find a long black wig without bangs that doesn't have a retarded hairline.

Pulled out Kalina Ann today. Assessed the damage on the handle left over from Otakon and AUSA combined...not too bad, wish Bucky (mai Dante) still had some resin to fix it. As-is, I may be able to get it repaired with some hot glue and black paint, though it won't be as strong.

Also, got the shipping confirmation for my leather corset. KEKEKEKEKEKEKE <3

At the moment, working on my dread falls for my rave outfit. I've been dabbling in fake hair for long enough, figured I might as well man up and try 'em. A bit on the lumpy side, but getting progressively better. Also, the blue and purple I got was not actually kanekalon and does not want to seal. I'm kind of ticked. Oh well, I guess I'll wrap some wire around those and add more metal throughout. They'll probably be worn with tons of other stuff on my head.

25 dreads down. 55 to go. FFFFFFFFF-

Here's what they look like so far: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v45/destinite/dreads1.jpg
Excuse the total lack of makeup and bikini top. It's 80 degrees here in Wilmington, I've been passed out in the sun most of the day....and after all that I'm still pale.

Kristy, just wear anything bright and shiny :] Take a look at other convention photos around Friday or Saturday night (Refractor Productions has a LOT and they're sorted by day and in chronological order) or search for rave photos on photobucket, google, or in the cosplay.com galleries.

Bright, shiny, fuzzy, vinyl, you name it. I'm a big fan of tutus, fluffies, fake hair, and vinyl myself. Not to mention the crazy makeup.

Wow, the dreads look awesome. I've no skill in the fake hair department, so it's not something I'd even attempt at this point. Always been curious, but not curious enough to learn about it, I guess =) They look good, though. I wish you luck in completing the rest of them.

And I feel you on the pale bit. Spent the entire day on the beach today, and I've got nothin'. Suppose it's a good thing I like being pale...

Thanks, Liz. http://www.hairextensionsforum.com/ has been an invaluable resource...the Aussies and Brits on there do crazy things with jumbo braid. Hair is my career, and I'm trying to pin down an area that not many have mastered, because the money lies in doing what nobody else can accomplish.

I've been alabaster-pale the past three summers, I'm throwing skintone accuracy for Amber and Lady to the wind and tanning it up this summer. I'll be able to fake it with makeup at AZ, but by Otakon I might as well just live with it.

Ordered my Amber contacts last night. They're not the Manson ones, because I'm too cheap to buy those. They're a super pale blue, which will work just fine. I actually like them better. :p

Photoshoot went well. I did end up wearing the dreads, but I layered them on top of a loose, wavy ponytail fall for added body. Wandering downtown in a red pvc corset and 6-inch metal covered platform boots with HUGE dread-hair gets you a lot of stares.

Some little boy looked at me all wide-eyed and said "MOMMY SHE'S A SUPERHERO!" XD

Hello guys! To liivingdeadgirl, it'll be sad if you are not doing your Yuki cosplay! =< I was looking forward to having a twin lol. Hm, however, unlike most cosplayers i think, i can only cosplay Yuki because I am poor and Yuki was my first choice. By Yuki, I do mean the turned Yuki from VK. I'm also currentlly working on her scythe with my father.

Yuki (Vampire Knight Guilty):
Have: Jacket, Undershirt, skirt, red tie (kinda confused how I am going to wear it, skirt (all of the ones above this message was purchased from Cosplay Garden on Ebay because while am okay at sowing, I wouldn't be able to do anything as extravagant as that jacket so I just thought this would be easier), Thigh-highs (i have two pair... i think they fit my legs a little tightly though, so i am looking for a pair that doesn't cling as tightly, help? :lost:), boots (took me forever!!! when i saw the anime, i thought the boots had belts but i was showed they didn't, they are jsut brown lace-up boots.... however they were so hard to find! I finally found a pair int he childreens section of my work, K-mart. They were the last pair there and fit my tiny feet perfectly, I bought them immediately!!! lol)

In the making: Artemis' scythe form (a lot harder than i thought it would be! But I think me and my father are doing pretty well on it. It's my first prop I ever made so... Feedback please? :bigtu: Pictures can be found in the links below)

http://bunneh-kins.deviantart.com/art/Yuki-Scythe-in-the-making-4-115580507



I've also always wanted to do a Vampire Princess Miyu cosplay... If I get the extra money, considering it'd be cheap to make the kimono, and obi, and all you would need is a ribbon on your foot... Only think expensive would be a very long brown wig... I have long hair but I also have NO IDEA how to do Miyu's hair but I guess that is something for the hair and wig forum, huh? =P

Regena
03-12-2009, 11:23 PM
Woot i made progress....today i sew'd a majority of Fuu's skirt. If i work on it some more tomorrow before work. Then i could also knock out the kimono top this weekend, if i have enough motivationXD

Fallain
03-12-2009, 11:25 PM
bunneh- your scythe looks amazing, what material did you use for the blade?

And are you doing Miyu's hair in the 1 bun thing? That wouldn't be too hard if you knew how to do buns

03-12-2009, 11:38 PM
^-^ Thankies!!!! Anyway, it is made from insulation foam! I found the forum on here for a scythe tutorial and decided to give it a shot!

As for the hair, I know how to do buns... Did them alllll the time for color guard (Marching band not JROTC), but I dunno if i would divide my hair into two sections, pull the lower section into the side poney-tail, and then use the other half to do the bun or what... ~sighs~ And I'll probably have extensions in anyway for Yuki's hair because hers is just a lil longer than mine in her turned form.... So would i even need to slit it into two like that or... ? sorry if these questions sounds dumb. ^-^;;;

Sh!bby
03-13-2009, 12:05 AM
Bunneh: I'd suggest using your hair to do the bun and then using extensions for the ponytail. If your hair is long enough, you probably won't need to part it, just slick it all up into the bun. Also, if you can't get a satisfactory side bun, go to an ethnic hair store (where the black ladies buy weave, ask a chick with a weave if you don't know of one, seriously!) and buy a bun hairpiece, then put it over the bun you have. attach the ponytail extension to your real hair-bun, then place the hairpiece over it. Voila. They're usually less than $20. Most are like $10-12.

EDIT: http://www.highlandisland.com/media/hairaccessories/TR2101lg.jpg is what I'm talking about :] They come in lots of different styles and colors!

Bunneh-kins
03-13-2009, 12:12 AM
Thankies for the advice! I will try putting my hair into a side bun tomm. I probably wont need the hair piece though lol. Being in color guard we had to do sock buns in under 30 min and my hair is loooooong so it was uber hard.... O_O I just got a great idea... Attaching the fake hair to the sock that goes in the sock bun! >_> I feel so silleh now lol. Thankies you guys for helping me! I'll go check prices on material for the kimono and Obi tomm!

Sh!bby
03-13-2009, 12:19 AM
Bunneh: Yep! Attach the fake hair ponytail to the base of the bun-ponytail, then roll 'er up! Should work fantastically. What kind of fake hair do you have? is it drawstring, clip, or on an elastic? I think if you used just the loose silky hair (kanekalon or toyokalon usually) just how it comes out of the bag like this: http://www.ehair4u.com/img/DSC_4405.jpg it would sit under the bun really cleanly.

That's like $3 at an ethnic hair store and it's called a Yaki Pony. Reason I suggest that is because if you're using a clip or string fall, it may be too bulky.

Fallain
03-13-2009, 12:24 AM
Bunneh- wow, insulation foam? o_O Some people are genius I tell you...Either way, the details look great.

Looks like you've got the hair figured out ^^()

Bunneh-kins
03-13-2009, 08:53 AM
DestiniteLuna- Thankies desu! I do not have any fake hair yet.... ^-^;; But I shall buy some... I still need to find some good extentions for my yuki cosplay... Ah i guess i shoulda put that down on "don't have" for my progress.... Sorry... ^-^;;;

Side note: So basiclly i live on a mountain right now. I know this has nothing to do with this thread, however, I had a really good idea for pictures of me in my Yuki outfit because i do not know any professional photographers... It just snowed last night... I'm thinking taking some pics of me in my Yuki costume in the snow... o_o Good idea? >_>

Fallain: Again, thankies for the compliment!!!! You made me feel soooo much better about my scythe because i didn't know what others would think... Lol Daddy and i are going to start fiberglassing it today probably. Then daddy is going to take it home, and sand the bones in it.... Then i am going to try to get it back here, paint it and stuff, and take some pictures around this tiny town with it. ^-^ I wish I had other VK cosplayers I know to take pictures with..... =<

P.S. I will let you have a more extensive look at it at the convention if I happen to meet you! ^-^

03-13-2009, 09:19 AM
Live? Live... Wellllll... Technically I live two places. Henry County Va, home of the Martinsville race track, is where I was born and raised and daddy still has my room waiting for me... However, where I am at right now is at my college in Wise va. This is around the west-most part on the tip of Va. Convince him to go as Zero so we can take pics? xD

I only have a pic of the wig, not the extensions. As soon as I dig up some batteries out of whichever box I packed them in I'll put them in and take some new pics for you.

heres the wig though. http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=12809937&albumID=2120624&imageID=49040165

My trunks' wig should be coming in soon as well.

Kristy... ~whimpers and gives Shuichiesc shiny and watery puppy dog eyes.~ I-I want a box of stwabewwy pockeh.... ~whimpers~ Pwease? ~looks all cute and innocent.~

So basically, earlier i went to take pictures in my costume........ Yea... it isn't finished... `sighs~ The jacket needs to be a bit longer and taken in at the waist... it's like the people who made it did not account for the fact i am larger in certain areas than others... le sigh... and i gave them my measurements too... I would show pics but i am toooooooo emberassed... they make me look like I weigh 250... and while yes, i am a chubbeh, I am not that big... No offense to people who are i still <3 you anyway! But still... I felt horrible... I almost cried... :bigcry:

As for the Rave... i dunno what i am going to wear... I might buy like a purple skirt, wear my black boots, a black shiny shirt, and put purple clip-ins in my hair. ^-^ lol.

Got the black v-neck undershirt and a faded-mustard-yellow linen oversized women's blazer for Graverobber...the black undershirt is nice and soft, Bucky'll love it, and the blazer is ugly as sin but is the right fabric for my purposes and the neckline and sleeves work, so I just need to remove pockets, sew the front together, and take it in a bit. Thank youuuu, Goodwill.

Also got a leather bustier (also Goodwill!) for $3. It'll work for Amber's leather bustier that goes UNDER the corset (SO MUCH LEATHER). Just need to hack up an old, ugly leather skirt i have and make shoulder straps. Then hunt down some black sequin fabric and a shineybra. Probably going to hunt around Goodwill for 80's sequined ugly and hack it up to make hot pants.

I kind of want to slap the costume designer for giving Amber sequin hotpants. I mean really...? REALLY?!

SaintQ: yeah, a good deal were hers. I just checked the costume breakdown and they weren't something Paris already had, they were by Leg Avenue. And I just bought them for $30 after shipping, lololololol.

Because I don't want to sew sequins. I'm sick of difficult fabrics for the moment.

That link is to a wig i found... I think it was Kristy who was looking for it? It's natural color brown i think mixed with red. I thought of you when i saw it because i was looking for my raver outfit for the con.

Anyway, Yes I am finding my raver stuff. I am kinda shy about it, so i will post pics on my final decisions on here to see if you guys like them I dun wanna go in the party looking uber stupid. xD

Well, the wig hunt was a fail. I found one that I may be able to transform into the Digimon Emperor but i'll have to order James and Duo offline next week.

I got the basics for James. He's going to be ALOT easier than I thought. I still need to go to the fabric store to get some red and white fabric sometime though.

And I finally got the shoes and socks for Shana so all that's left for her is the red contacts. w00t!

I'm not happy with my dresses sleeves....this isn't good. I could redo them with another "poof" top design, but then I might not have enough satin for the layers for the skirt. Or I could keep the lamb leg sleeve...but the poofs just seem so big on my manequin. CURSE YOU UNDEFINED DESIGNS! Air gear is not known for its consistency in detail ;n;

Was cleaning out under the sink at my parents' house and guess what I found?

Six plastic vials left over from some floral arrangement.

ZYDRATE VIALS.

I'm thinking of filling them with bright blue dishwashing liquid and sealing them with hot glue. They won't glow, but they'll be blue and translucent.

Also ordered Graverobber's Danzig belt buckle last night.

I'd suggest putting a blue glow stick in them but that'd only show up at night :( That's pretty damn cool though. I'm gonna come steal one and run around like a zydrate addict XD

Nah, homicide isn't on my agenda (for that weekend, anyway). But the reason I'm probably using dish soap is so it doesn't evaporate and steam up the space in the vial, or get all gunky. KoolAid would likely stain the vial, and drain cleaner is a very strong alkaline and probably isn't a good idea to keep anywhere on your person.

Oh, and you don't DRINK Zydrate! It's 'injected', kind of. Or whatever the hell the Zydate gun is supposed to be doing...

SaintQ
03-14-2009, 11:42 PM
The Z-gun injects the zydrate into the bloodstream. It also sends a small electrical charge along with it, because according to the zydrate.com website, zydrate needs an electrical current to help turbo-charge the effects of it. Or something. i haven't looked at it in a while.

Becoming increasingly discouraged by my facial shape. need to practice contouring.

You might want to use mouth wash instead, since it is far less likely to bubble up if it does get shaken or dry out slowly over time.

you could have just asked around and see if someone has a Pink wig that the wouldn't mind you using [like Fallian is doing for me]

DestiniteLuna - Why not get something that would glow in the dark, or under some black lights, like Blue HighLiner Ink? >>'

Sh!bby
03-15-2009, 01:05 AM
Kristy: Because I wouldn't be under any blacklights XD And the only thing I can think of that would glow in the dark would be glowstick juice. I suppose I could bring my hot glue gun, a few glowsticks, and whatever fluid works best (mouthwash or dishsoap) and mix the glowstick fluid in with it in the hotel room the day of. That way it would glow.

I'll look into it~

Yeah, I considered LED's, but I'm not sure how I would rig them up. I'm gonna have to do more research on how they work and how I can integrate them into my gun.

Yea..nuclear engineering, brain surgery...same difference. Genius XD But anyways, that's probably why your cosplays are always so freaking awsome.

Hey anyone who's seen Digimon 02, any ideas on how I would make the shoulder armor for the Digimon emperor's cape and attach it to the cape so that it still closes in the front? I was thinking about sewing the cape first and going ahead and making the collar for it and closure and then making the shoulders out of craft foam but then I was thinking maybe the closure should be craft foam too? But then i'm not sure how to attach it..super glue? and if it would hold

Sh!bby
03-15-2009, 02:46 AM
Nicci, post a reference and I may be able to help you. But yes, foamies would probablky work. And you'd have to experiment. you may not be able to use foamies if the fabric you're attaching is too heavy.

Hot glue works well to attach foamies to each other.

EDIT: Just ordered boots for Amber. HOOKER BOOTS YAY.

Bunneh - I was accepted to the NCSU honor program, but didn't want to do engineering or agriculture, so I went to UNCW for two years and took Japanese. They offer a minor. I left to go to cosmetology school because I wasn't feelin' it. I tried psychology, sociology, and business as majors and never really liked any of them all that much. Fantastic grades, no passion. Eh. BUT NOW I'VE GOT BOTH, LULZ.

Kristy - Yeah, there are usually blacklights at the rave, but I don't think we'll be doing Repo! at the rave because I purchased a ton of white and silver pvc vinyl from JoAnn after Halloween in order to make rave outfits. :3

Kristy, where in NC do you live? Going by your Myspace, I'm guessing somewhere on the coast. Fallain and I are in Wilmington.


Now, for an updated rundown of things I have/ordered/have to do:

Amber Sweet:
-Have: Leather bustier, extra leather to alter said bustier, black nail polish, thigh high black stockings
-Ordered: Leg Avenue Black sequin hotpants (eew), Patent leather Pleaser Seduce-3050 thigh high boots, ice blue contact lenses, black leather underbust corset.
-Need: Black wig, Bettie Page style (already found it, need to order with my next paycheck), nylon webbing for the garter harness, dramatic fake eyelashes, assorted buckles, studs, grommets, etc.
-Need to do: Alter corset and bustier, make garter harness, style wig, figure out makeup

...I feel so close to done on this one <3 It makes me incredibly happy.

Graverobber:
-Have: Faux distressed leather for overcoat, base boots, black v-neck tshirt that exposes lots of MANRY chest, faded dull mustard-yellow button down that needs alteration, but will work, Zydrate vials, glue gun to turn into a Zydrate gun (too cheap to buy a paint gun)
-On order: Danzig belt buckle.
-Need: gloves (motorcycle gloves), long, thin blue scarf (or fabric, lolol), pants to alter, dark reddish-brown (or whatever color, I can dye it) faux sheepskin for the coat collar, metal plates and buckles to make "Reaper-30" style boots out of the ones we have, wig (found it lol), blue, red, and platinum loose extensions, very pale face-makeup, stuff to alter the Zydrate gun, leather or vinyl for vial harness and MANPURSELOL.
-Need to do: possibly dye fake leather a little darker/splotchier, make coat (easy! I'm a coat MASTAH at this point.), alter shirt (again, easy lol), alter pants (MOAR EASY), make manpurse and thigh harness harness (euuugh), make boot-harness, add extensions to wig and style, work on makeup, figure out Zydrate mixture. Oh, and weather ALL of the clothing to make it look like he's a scruffy, sexy street rat who digs up dead people and shoves needles up their noses.

Bucky says he'll make the Zydrate gun <3 One less thing for me to fight with.

Also...when I show people references for these costumes, since the Zydrate Anatomy vids on youtube have been deleted due to copyright, I've been sending them THIS LINK. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgcr8t-BUGM)

Deleted sex scene. LOLOLOLOL. ;_;

I'll take pics when all of my stuff comes in. This week will be a constant stream of packages and me being all whiney because I have to finish my commission before I start on my own stuff.

I live in Sea Level, which is on the really cost line, after you go pass Morehead City and Beaufort, on 70 east.

Omg i want to see you in that Zydrate Anatomy outfit x)

MUST TAKE PICS OF YOU....btw i found a camra YAY and it works YAY. That's what i used for my new pics on my myspace profile.

One camra - free, my grandma gave it to my son.

Recharageable battlers - Free, had them for my x box controllers

Member Card - Free, had it from my old Motorola Slvr cellphone

Yes, please take lots of pics, Kristy! Of everyone...I have literally dozens of friends who attend (most of whom I dragged to the con myself in previous years) and I never bring a camera, so I never get pics. :< I've got a few photoshoots lined up with good photographers, and the photographer who did my recent photoshoot in the dreads, corset, and boots may be attending because he's apparently a huge nerd.

But there's really no fun in hunting when all the photos of you are on two or three sites and all lumped together!

My photoshoots are going to involve a ridiculous amount of fanservice. After watching the movie (particularly the Zydrate Anatomy scene), I kept thinking "Amber and Graverobber HAD to have hooked up at some point". Then I saw the deleted scene. Guess I was right.

And of course my Lady and Dante are always fanservicey. They're my DMC OTP after all. Not much makes me angrier fandom-wise than Dante all up on Trish. FFFFFFFFFFFFF-

kristyhimura
03-15-2009, 01:28 PM
Umm i away thought that Dante and Trish were more like Bro/Sis plus Dante says that she looks a lot like his human mother and that's why he hangs with her...

BTW Trish is my nickname and yes it is spelled like hers..and the a chick from WWE Raw too >>; i just don't have the blond hair lol.

Btw i don't know if i told you or not but i made an AMV a while back for my brother who was and still is a big Dante Fan, and i sent it in AZ and they told me that they accepted it. ^^

Sh!bby
03-15-2009, 01:32 PM
Oh cool! Yeah...I know that Dante and Trish aren't supposed to be a 'thing', though sometimes their relationship gets a little on the weird side, but the fandom likes to put them together and it annoys me to no end.

Can't wait to see your AMV!

kristyhimura
03-15-2009, 01:44 PM
Thanks ^^..i do have it on Youtube i mite want to make sure no one watches it maybe o.O be like you have to put in a code or something to watch it..I didn't get to put in the AMV that it was for my bro but He knows and so do I. ^^

Theres a pic of his outfit (I'm I RETARDED for attempting this or WHAT?! The wig alone is making me go OMFG-AH)

I think i've got it figured out except for the cape though. I don't actually know how to sew...^^() I toke a class in high school but me and patterns just never got along so I just kind of get an idea in my head of how to do something and then try it out and tweak around with it. The cape itself seems easy, it's just attaching the collar and then the shoulders and clasp.

I like that velco idea though! It gives me a 2nd idea to just make the SHIRT with the collar on it, and then make the cape velco to the back so I can take the cape off easy if I want to. But then theres those damn shoulders again...

I heard something about fan service? XD Duo Maxwell here...what good cosplay of Duo would it be if there wasn't some fan service? lol

I can't wait to see your Lady cosplay in person >_<

and your sexy Amber of course

kristyhimura
03-15-2009, 02:46 PM
The shoulders will be abit of a problem just make a little bit of a shell that lets the Frabit Flow over the cap. thats what it looks like to me then hotglue the frabit under the ends of the Shell and your shoulder would be done..if you want to get someone you know or you can sew the Shoulders to your shirt ^^ add some veilcorw under the shoulder and have your cap Velcowed xD

Nah, homicide isn't on my agenda (for that weekend, anyway). But the reason I'm probably using dish soap is so it doesn't evaporate and steam up the space in the vial, or get all gunky. KoolAid would likely stain the vial, and drain cleaner is a very strong alkaline and probably isn't a good idea to keep anywhere on your person.

Oh, and you don't DRINK Zydrate! It's 'injected', kind of. Or whatever the hell the Zydate gun is supposed to be doing...
I know you were talking about trying the liquid in glowsticks, but you'll probably be a lot better off if you research and find a glow-in-the-dark application that you can paint on, similar to glaze on a canvas except... it glows in the dark! I'm afraid that glowstick liquid would be too diluted if you mixed it with another, like mouthwash or dishsoap. Not to mention that you'd have to put in enough glowstick liquid, and it's very likely that the dishsoap detergent or whatever would lose its blue color. Just paint the interior of the vial and then put in the desired liquid. Also, in this way, you don't have to keep throwing out liquid and pouring in new throughout the weekend. Just charge up the vial in direct light and then you're good to go!

I just got some by crayola, but none of my Google searches showed me my product. My label specifically reads "Crayola Interior Latex Glow-in-the-Dark F/X Finish".

I hope this helps!

Hot glue = cosplay magic
I was thinking something similar to that but something about it just doesn't seem to fit when I try to go through the steps in my head.
Eh, maybe it just something I need to work through D:

Yep i guess so, Have to find a way around stuff and make it more like the 'real' thing as you can get it..Maybe you could make the shoulders kindof have wires holding them together and have them come out of under the shirt or the back of it or something...kindof like Sayia armor?

Fallain
03-15-2009, 08:21 PM
haha i'm not going to try anything with wires. They scare me. D: When I was little my older brothers used to hold me down and poke me with sharp ones so just thinking about having them near me makes me nervous :(

Saiyan armor is a good reference though, I could probably look up how some people did theirs and work off of that. Thanks!

Helps a little, but now we're rigging up an LED to the gun so it'll glow there...I'm not too worried about the extra vials glowing. The Crayola glow paint is generally milky-looking, I've used it before. I've got two months, I might as well come up with a new technique, eh? I'll find something that works. I always do.

For Vaan, I have the leg armor abouuuuut....75% done. The base coat of silver has been added, then I have to do another quick one, then add some 3D-paint, some weathering effects, and shablam, they'll be done. The back part, the weird wire-y looking stuff, was hard but I go it done. And it looks cool. >D
The sash is done. I don't have the leather that goes around it. I also need to buy some cheap blue stones (I forget the original name....I want to say blue agate, but that's not it...It's turqoise) to put on several pieces of the costume.
Unfortunately that is all I have done so far. I will be ordering the wig and styling it soon. Bahhh.

Edit:
XD I forgot, I'm also working on his finger greaves. I have one hand almost done, as in shaped and able to stay on my fingers. The other greaves are cut out, but I don't have them shaped or anything yet. I have progress pics, but <_> I don't wish to show them yet.

Zomg... Umi is soooo beautiful and graceful..... Ah I could never cosplay her because I am too short a loud mouth and ditzy... Only one of the knights i could cosplay would be Hikaru and that just isn't happening lol Besides, I'd feel like i'd never get the costumes right because those girls are like sticks!

Feel free to glomp though, i'm tough. ^^ I've already had a few people tell me their going to glomp me so i'll be on guard once i'm Duo.

As for Duo's cosplay, I'm hand sewing the white part of the sleeves right now. Because I have a short attention span and I feel the need to multi-task so I don't get bored >_> I'm ordering a 5ft wig to braid next week and then purple contacts too. I can't wait for my contacts <3 Duo's eyes are part of what I adore about him

I haven't worked on my Emperor wig..I've poked it with some sissors a bit but besides that..meh. I'm not entirely concerned though, I found the perfect wig for him anyways if I can't do this. I cut and painted his shoulder armor out of craft foam and made one of his wrist cuffs. I'm waiting to see if the velcro and hot glue get along before I paint it and add details to either though

@o01101: WOW your one of those detail amazing people! That looks awesome! <3 Thanks for showing it :)

They asked why and i said because it is pretty. They looked at me weird. Why? Why am i weird because i love the clothes form cosplaying? Why? I mean, even once a month...

I'm defently going to be taking a good look at your scythe when I get there. Now that i've officially brought Duo out of the closet (the COSPLAY closet. Get yo minds outta the gutter) I really want to make Deathscythe's bright green scythe. I wish I could have held out until I got it done but oh well, Duo's one of my all time fav anime characters so I don't mind cosplaying him more than once.

Work is screwing me over worse than I thought though so there may be more delays on getting things. Unfortunately I'm going to have to be taking them out of my Simca cosplay since she's the least done and i have to get everything for her separate while i'm ordering everyone else in groups. I'd rather have one cosplay completely unfinished than 3 almost finished :( Plus i'm just having all around issues with everything to do with her *sigh* Lesson learned: do everything yourself even if it kills you

Fallain:: *hits with the same reality stick!!!* hahaha... yea, at least i have tomorrow off! i can work on stuff then :) OH and I am so glad someone else is as excited bout my shana cosplay as i am!!! I've even got a Rose coming with me...... :D

@Mina...you..have a Rose too...? *dies* *just freakin dies*

I may have run into a small problem with my Duo cosplay...I went to go sew the white part of his collar onto a black shirt I have with a high stretchable collar. But then I realized...the collar stretches so it will fit over my head. The white fabric does not...if I sew this on it will either not fit over my head, or rip. D: So i'm at a standstill for this right now

Could you snip it in half and add a snap, or some closure, on the back? So it can be open when you put it on then you just close it.

Ferio will get done..somehow XD I'm doing his prince robes from season 2 for AZ and saving his season 1 outfit probably until otakon. But really it won't be that bad. I do have the shoulder armor started and the jewels casted. I have the material for the cape. I just need to get moving a little faster x_x

if I get the season 1 outfit done I might wear that for a little while too. Just depends on time.

I got my Amber Sweet sequin bootyshorts in today. They're...wow. They fit kind of like bikini bottoms, but lower on the hip. I definitely have to wear pantyhose with 'em, which I counted on anyway.

They look nice on me but good god are they kind of slutty.

I was talking to another friend who's cosplaying ZA Amber to another convention and she bought the same shorts. We were both loling over them. Seriously. I don't even know if I want to post pictures because it's all DAT ASS DEM THIGHS, no face. D:

Starlock Simon (Gurren Lagann) - Wig, goggles, pants, drill, check. Fabric for coat, almost check! Need to get more for the details, but I've got enough to work with for now. Ugh. Need to get stuff for the man corset, choker, and bracers. And belts. AND BOOTS. fffff. Starglasses are being made by a friend

Grell Sutcliff (Kuroshitsuji) - Wig, check and cut. Needs to be RESTYLED. >_< HALP ZIPPEH. Shoes, pants, glasses chain, ribbon tie, check. Glasses? Pfft. Naw.

As for everyone who says i will make a good hiakru, i will ponder about cosplaying her next year, how's that? Mew mew! =3 Or if anyone has a spare Hikaru outfit and wig that might fit me i would be more than happy to barrow. lol.

Now, as for my Vampire Princess Miyu cosplay. I bought the fabric yesterday. It's perfect!!! I didn't want to get silk because it is obvious that her red and white kimono in the ovas isn't silk! I've seen a few pics of Vampire Princess Miyu cosplayers, and silk just isnt cutting it. I wish i could find someone who has a pair of yellow contacts i could barrow or a place where i could buy them for CHEAP! Because that would make the costume even more amazing!

Ah progress.....I needs it. >_<


So far the ONLY thing I've gotten done is:

Toph - Purchased all mats, bought wig (should be shipped today), cut everything, stitched together pants and they are TOO SMALL. I CAN squeeze into them, but they're too tight...and the fabric was expensive and I cut the size I thought I needed...so yeah, I'm just going to work really hard to loose a few lbs so they're not as tight. >_<
Still need to stitch the other parts together and order the contacts.

Zuko (For my husband) - Have all fabrics, cut and everything, have boots. Still need to stitch everything together, alter the boots, make the swords and holster, and order the wig.

Silent Hill nurse - 0% (fails)

Kamikirimusi (Remake of the giant bat) - Have most of the mats and some of the balsa wood cut, this should only take me a weekend though if I just sit down and DO it.

I also want to make one more NEW costume, but can't decide what. =/

Wig and costume have been commissioned and ordered together. I got my contact prescription approved for a brand that makes colored contacts, now I need to order them. I ordered boots this morning from Cosworx. Once I get the costume, I'm going to buy this awesome adhesive "bra" thing that is basically a big piece of plastic to keep my boobs in place!

Human Morrigan
All I need are the same contacts again and a white shirt that also will be used for Melfina.

Melfina
Ordered my wig this morning from Amphigory! Also found a tie this morning but I think it might need to be altered. I need to buy the shirt and any suggestions on how to do her straps or anklet would help. I'm not crafty at all, though I hope to learn more soon.


I'm also gonna try to lose 10 or more lbs by AZ. Anyone else getting healthy for cosplay? :]

I'm trying to get into better shape by con...I'm already rail-thin (always have been), but I've been wanting to build muscle tone liek woah. My abs are almost visible...from some angles you can see a faint shadow....

Those of you looking to lose weight, if you drink soda, CUT IT OUT. You will seriously drop ten pounds in a month if you drink a significant amount. You wouldn't believe how fast all the calories and carbs add up. I'm trying to cut back on sugars just because I've been eating too much of it lately and my family is very prone to type-2 diabetes. So I've stopped drinking so much sugary stuff at work (I'm a Port City Java barista, at the main office cafe) and I've stopped using the bakery items for snacks, as delicious as they are.

Sitting in the cafe right now, actually. With an apricot tea with a tiny bit of simple syrup because it's nasty unsweetened.

I'm also wearing my Amber Sweet contacts today to get used to how they affect my vision (they're white on the inside so it looks like bright lights on the edges of my vision) and everyone either loves them or is incredibly freaked out by them. My fantastic gay coworker told me they looked like 'ghostly pools of seduction' or some such mess.

Trying to buy a wig from another girl in the Marketplace. She's a rather well known cosplayer in the Northwest, so I trust that she'll sell me a good product. If I can get it, it'll be $20 instead of $35 *crosses fingers*.

OOH MY LEATHER CORSET IS IN AND IT IS GORGEOUS. I keep rubbing my face on the leather. So niiiiiiii~ce....

Boots will be in between now and Monday. Once I get 'em, I'll take some progress pics. Still have alteration to do to the under-bustier, but that'll be fast, and so will corset alterations and making the shrug and garterbelt. I can make those all in a day.

Fufufufufu I'm so hyped up right now.

Adelaide: Thankfully, it actually covers about as much as my Jo bikini bottoms do, plus I'm going to be wearing Amber's harness-garter-skirt thing over it, so said bum will be rather covered. I had a heck of a time figuring out what she was wearing underneath (had to go to the costume designer's breakdown of the outfit), so it should not be any sort of nudity violation. I'm making sure of that.

I personally would be rather uncomfortable walking around in just the shorts...it was bad enough as Jo last year. I kept covering my bum.

And I've got plenty of people around me who would fend off any creeps, not that I ever really get them. I usually tell them to knock it off myself.

So I've got the boyfriend, a pregnant girl, a few other female friends, and a few dude friends, two of whom are my rather protective nonbiological brothers.

EDIT: Darkmist: Graverobber is coming along. I've got the fabric for the coat (need to find the faux fur, though) and the shirts, plus some boots to alter, and Zydrate vials. It won't take me too long to finish. If there's anything I'm running behind on, I'll nix some of the smaller details for now and perfect them by Otakon.

I have to remake one of my lower sleeves. I misplaced the upper cross and because its embroidered I couldnt get all the stitches out without damaging the fabric...which I did when I tried. Damn satin pulls. If I end up not having enough fabric for the layered portion of the skirt and then the bow I may scream. Curse you gowns!...and yet its owning me.

Second sleeve is going well, upper cross done, lower cross done, just doing the boarder around the wrist and I can stitch the sucker up.

Hi hi!!!!

Well, yes! i am trying to loose lots and lots and lots of weight desu! I have been running everywhere at work, using putting up strays like a power walk. If i dun go to work, i go to the gym. I havnt fully cut out sodas, but trying!!! Mmmm Ramune... Ahem. My big problem is Pocky... Can't resist... I eat a lot less though so hopefully it will show!!!

As for progress!

Yuki- Me and my taylor, my beloved Rose, got together today and fixed the jacket. We fitted it to me and zomg it looks better already! Then we took Yuki's skirt and took it up about an inch. Once we did that though, the pleats where screwed up so she is going to try to iron them back to normal. If that doesn't work then hand stitching for the win!

Miyu- Yes, I am officially doing it!......... I need to change my signature when i can. I got the perfect set of fabrics for her red and white costume. She will be cutting out the design this weekend and we are going to get together and sow it because during the making of this costume she is teaching em how to sow! That way i can POSSIBLY make my own costumes from now on if i get a sowing machine.... :lost: We took my measurements for the costume as well!

I guess my progress is coming along a lot better than some of you! I'm picking of course! =P I have faith that all of us cosplayers will get our cosplays done in time!!! Because we <3 cosplaying!!! ^-^

PS! my bf just showed me this!!! Foamy's rules for a convention!!!! They are so true lmfao.

I'm not playing Varsity Soccer anymore (actually my spring co-curricular is an independent study on cosplay, lol, so that's when I do Vaan instead of a sport XD), so that means lazy lazy lazy and food food food. Plus LOTS of soda. But yeah, I read everyone's posts and now I'm gonna cut back. I haven't had some good juice in forever T__T And some flavored water won't hurt.

I probably should lose a little weight before AZ but i'm afraid that if I do people might think I am getting sick again ^^;; I got diagnozed with cancer shortly after AZ last year and had lost a lot of weight to a point where I was very underweight. Now I am probably a little heavier then I should be but that was because it was a battle with gaining my weight back so I was a healthy size again. I'm hoping at some point I can figure out what my ideal weight is and try and maintain it. Right now I think I could afford to lose maybe at most 10 pounds. Too bad Pepsi is like an addiction for me so dropping that is probably out of the question XD

I think I just need to exercise and try to get my strength back for now. That will help to get to a normal weight I believe.

As for progress:
-Ferio's armor is in progress. Tunic pieces and cape pieces are cut out. Shirt is in progress.
-9 out of 10 large jewels are cast for Ferio and Ascot
-Allen's jacket and eyepiece are 90% done
-Bought ink for printer so now can make Yamamoto's patch XD

Still a lot to do, but there is some steady progress.

Binary: I did the SAME THING the first time I made the sleeves for Bucky's Dante jacket. And then I did the same thing with the concept-art Dante coat I made for his Christmas gift. A-durrrrrr. I keep forgetting that even though he's not much bigger than me, he's got bigger arms than I do.

But I'm keeping this in mind for Graverobber. You live, you learn.

Just redo the sleeve, you'll fare better in the long run. Just find out how much bigger you need it. Maybe you can let out the seam or add a tiny gusset near the elbow?

Also, my waifu is mailing me some leatherette she has left over from her Yoko for all of my corset detailing needs <3 SHE WUVS MEEEEEEEE. T_T

Bought bra and LOLSPARKLES for Amber. Ordered fluff for Graverobber's coat last night. I'll have to tint it to get that burgundy-brown look, but whatever. At least it's shaggy.

My boots are supposed to come in tomorrow. Win win win win win!

Went to JoAnn to pick up the rhinestones and some thread today and there's this new lady...a rather old lady, probably in her 70's, who doesn't realize I'm a regular customer and is apparently oblivious to the fact that people under 30 actually sew. In any case, she was treating me like a common criminal just because I put back the Swarovski crystals in favor of cheaper rhinestones. "Didn't you just have the EXPENSIVE ones?!" "Yeah. I put them back. The cheaper ones work just as well." *cue nasty look from the old lady* I caught her over by the Swarovskis looking very closely and angrily at the display a minute later. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- old bag.

W00t for actually making progress today. I finished James' shirt even though I had to re-sew the R three times and a friend gave me the red fabric so...I didn't think to get red thread too >< My mum had a slightly darker shade that looks awful up close but far away you can't even tell so i'm just going to leave it alone for now. If I get the rest of my cosplays done with time still for AZ I might re-do it.

Finally some good progress!!

I got some help from an awesome Coscom member in how to do my layered skirt for Akitos wedding dress. Followed her method and got both layers cut out and pinned to the mannequin to see how it'd look. LOVE IT.

I have enough fabric left over to replace the one sleeve I damaged via embroidery, i'll have to find another solution for the tight one. Then I can use the scraps remaining for the butt bow/flower. If none of this works...I'll have to go buy another yard of fabric, I'll spend more on gas then fabric just going out to the store lol.

On Jokers end. No progress. I need to test out pattern ideas for the double breasted vest. Found my white shirt at least that I plan to alter. I may tackle the shirt tonight.

Went to JoAnn with my mother today (my car's in the shop, I needed someone to pick me up from my classes and she had errands to run, too) and got enough rhinestones to finish SPARKLEBRA...just finished gluing them on, will glue more if needed after they dry and I get to do a test run.

JoAnn has all their notions 40% off so I raided. Got D-rings and nylon webbing for Amber's garter harness, plus the zipper. Going to Raleigh on Friday and will be dropping by Tandy Leather to snag the buckles for the corset and shoulder straps. Yeeees. May pick up some black lambskin while I'm there to alter my corsets, actually...

thoma: wow! I didn't know that, even though i dunno you lolz. try not to loose too much....

As for progress on weight: I haven't been eating hardly anything about one meal a day. I know, bad... I'm not doing it because i want to but because i am sooooo freaking busy!!!!!!!I wake up, get ready for school, realize i am late, rush out the door, run to school. If i am late, which usually i am not i just was today, i skip and read over the chapter or do how. i hate walking into a class late. Then, after class i do how while munching on some snacks. I have to keep my sugar up atleast. Then i meet up with my presentation group for cultural diversity. Then i go to work. Sometimes i work 12:30 to 6:30 other times 5:00 to 9 or 9:30.. either way after work, i read my text books and the chapter books i have to read and again do homework. Then me and my bf have gotten into the habit of watching an episode of Vampire Knight (he is a gamer so he hasn't seen it) and an episode of Sliders before bed. Sliders is an old show form the '90s.... so... >_> Yea, usually running around liek a chicken with my head chopped off. Despite that, and my pants being a little loose, i look no better in the bikini/ bathing suit i want.. Yes i am loosing weight for more than jsut the con lol. I try to find time to go to the gym, but i can't... so when i run strays a work, i power walk, i try to drink fuze over sodas, but if i am about to go into shock form lack of sugar i will drink a soda and eat some candy lol.

Luna: Yea, that old woman sounds really evil.

Btw, just to rant... sorry... I hate my boss... I was the only cashier yesterday afternoon.... the only one.... I hadn't eaten ANYTHING all day... that includes no candy to snack on to keep my sugar up. Around 2 i started feeling dizzy, as if i was going to pass out. I asked if i could take just a small break to get a drink and some candy or i would pass out. They told me to wait until 3:30 when another cashier was supposed to join me... Some how i made it to 3:30 but she didn't show! So i went back and asked again, they tossed me a few pieces of chocolate, and while it made me feel a little better, i still felt bad and i had to wait a whole other hour before my break so someone else could come in... GAH! If I didn't need money for the conventions, i would quit right now! >_<!!!! :bigcry:

Bunneh! Don't eat just one meal a day, it's murder on your metabolism. The best way to lose and maintain weight is to eat five or six small meals a day...so technically smaller meals and then little snacks in between. Keep it healthy, though. No fried junk or whatnot. Baked chicken is always good, and you can add marinara sauce or garlic or herbs/spices/seasoning mixes to it. As long as you cut out soda (this is actually a big thing, try it if you haven't and you'll notice the difference) and drink lowfat milk, water, juice, etc., plus any super greasy or fatty foods, you'll be good. A lot of people insist on cutting out carbohydrates (bread, pasta, etc). Don't, you need a few servings for energy! :3

Just keep track of what you consume and look at the nutrition facts on what you eat. Keep in mind what counts as a 'serving', as well. Fuze has several servings in a bottle and the calories tend to add up.

And for the love of anything don't substitute soda for vitamin water. Colorful, yes, tasty, yes. But its actually been put in a study and its about as bad as coke or pepsi, if not worse.

Well, I might not be able to do my James or Duo cosplays. :(

Seriously fucking depressing.

But I'm getting screwed 4 ways to hell with my paychecks and can't find a 2nd job so I just can't afford to buy the wigs for them right now :( Which sucks considering their costumes are 75% finished already.

Bunneh: Your post is redundant. XD Pocky is straight up sugar, fat, empty carbs, etc. Not to mention really expensive (seriously, it adds up).

I've stopped spending money where I don't need it so that I'll have plenty by AZ and won't have to worry about expenses such as parking putting a significant dent in my budget.

Just got back from the leather store...got a few square feet of black calf leather (lamb was too expensive, the only cut they had was HUGE). 3.2 sqft for $18. Also got the metal studs and buckles I need. ^.^

@bunnie - Eating stuff like that isn't good for you as you are trying to lose afew pounds. ^^ Remeber that.

I've cut out a lot of sugar lately to keep my weight off. I'm mostly concerned over my lower stomach. (It's pretty flat to begin with though, so hopefully nothing will happen in the next two months to ruin that.) I need to get on a regimen of doing crunches and whatevs every other night so I can have some tone to show off.
Since I had to get cocky and do an open shirt crossplay. FFFFF

Morrigan's boots and Melfina's wig are coming in this week! They didn't have Mel's wig in stock in solid black so I'm going to end up dying it. I think I've decided to not order contacts. Since mine would be prescription I have to order a whole box, not just a pair. I still need to gather a few things for Mel, but other than that I'm just WAITING for everything. I've requested pictures from the people making the costumes, but they haven't taken any yet... I wish they'd hurry up since I sorta wanted to cosplay at Animania in Jacksonville April 19th. :[

AdelaideVixen i didn't know that there is an Animania in Jacksonville.

Tell me more please, I know one of my friends told me that they do Dress Up for one day in Jacksonville but he didnt remeber what day nor if there was anything going on for it.

If my Cagalli Costume comes in before April the 19th i mite drive up there and walk around. If i knew more about.

YaY x) Btw the shoes for Cagalli isn't like hers but it's high Heels and they are nice shoes My mum has some but the are open in the back that are a lot like hers so if i can't wear the shoes i have i mite steal hers.

No pics yet of my costumes i havent really done anything but order stuff. xD i'm lazy.

Zomg yessssss

Discovered my mom never returned the mini (evil) sewing machine we bought two years ago. So I chose to try using it. It makes a beautiful tiny stitch, though its evil to try and control (no peddal...its a push button single speed.)

Hemmed my wedding dress Agito. This means ZOMG progress! that didn't then need to be redone! <33333

Also on the Joker front, I finally started and I adore my bow! (there's a progress pic in my gallery). I also started the ruffling on my shirt. So yay for things getting well on their way!
