Actually.... its still not done, minor details, hair pieces on the sides of my hood and what not. Also I noticed as I got off stage (during the costume contest) that my left glowing arm was dying! Well I'm going to keep working on it and hope it comes out better than it looked during Metro. =/


D: Awh. Im sorry you had no love...
But I noticed you if that helps any? ^^;;;
The glowing arms were great by the way~ I saw a Midna cosplay on this site and was awed by her glowing armbands, and I was excited when I saw that you had done the same for your costume.
X3 The glowing is what makes it cool, yanno?
I bet if you put that much work into an armband, then the rest of the costume will come out lovely. :3

Costumes are a pain like that.
I have 44 more rectangles to cut out, sew, pull inside out, and attach by hand on my tunic....o3o;;
Damn stitches.....



Ah.
I wish I could get started on my cosplay, but I can only afford fabric for that once a year. (Tax backs) Without my own job, I never have the money for anything, really....o3o;;
I wanted to do Luke FonFabre, but I dunno if that's even possible seeing as I have NO CLUE how to make his coat, and won't even have any money to get fabric until like...two months for the con.

Plus school's coming up;; and let me tell you, the Triforce does NOT help you pass biology; and america has very different history than Hyrule. >_>;;

Though Florida would be a hell of a lot cooler if it was named "Ordon Province".......

I don't want to give away what I'm planning for 09, but I'll be an iconic video game heroine.

I really hope Team Awesome will get together for a group of epic win, that would be so much fun to be a part of. I'm going to tryout for Anime Human Chess again and give Mascot a shot too for next year.

Aww.... thank you LittlefairyNin *virtual hugs* ^_^ Good luck cutting those rectangles, you can do it!

Aleera: Good luck with your costumes for the try outs for the chess match and the Metro idol, I'm sure you'll do fine.

Last year I'm pretty sure it was over two hundred, though it might have been closer to three hundred. I remember hearing the number, but it's mostly slipped my mind, sorry. XD
